Chapter 1 – The Neural Control of Movement by Warwick J. Peacock from Identification and Treatment of Gait Problems in Cerebral Palsy, 2nd Edition
About the Complete Book
The only book to deal specifically with the treatment of gait problems in cerebral palsy, this comprehensive, multi-disciplinary volume is invaluable for all those working in the field of cerebral palsy and gait.
The book is divided into two parts. The first is designed to help the reader evaluate and understand a child with cerebral palsy. It deals with neurological control, musculoskeletal growth, and normal gait, as well as cerebral injury, growth deformities and gait pathology in children with cerebral palsy.
The second section is a comprehensive overview of management. It emphasizes the most fundamental concept of treatment: manage the child’s neurologic dysfunction first and then address the skeletal and muscular consequences of that dysfunction.
The book has been thoroughly updated since the previous edition, with a greater focus on treatment and several entirely new topics covered, including chapters on the operative treatment of orthopaedic deformities.
The book is accompanied by downloadable teaching videos on normal gait and motion analysis data of all case examples used in the book, as well as teaching videos demonstrating the specifics of many of the procedures used in the correction of gait deformities and gait modelling examples from the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University.
Neurologists, Therapists, Physiatrists, Orthopaedic and Neurosurgeons, and Bioengineers.
