Item description for Steps to Follow: The Comprehensive Treatment of Patients with Hemiplegia by Patricia M. Davies...
This new edition of a best-selling guide incorporates significant advances in the early and later rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients. Based on the Bobath concept, Davies' approach to stroke rehabilitation stresses the need to equip the patient for a full life, rather than setting arbitrary goals for functioning in a sheltered environment. Activities are described for encouraging the recovery of active movements in more normal patterns as well as treatment to overcome oro-facial and perceptual difficulties. Ways to retrain functional walking, balance reactions and independence in daily life are explained and illustrated with 750 photographs of patients being treated.

Reviews - What do customers think about Steps to Follow: The Comprehensive Treatment of Patients with Hemiplegia?
A must for any therapist working with adult CVA! Aug 21, 1998
Patricia Davies Gives very descriptive, practical approaches that work. Even if you have not had specific NDT training, you can, as a therapist, learn from, and follow her approach. There are plenty of pictures to help guide. If you are a physical or occupational therapist even attempting to work with adults who have had neuro. dysfunction, you owe it to them to read this book!
