Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Medicine
48,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Medicine is designed to provide concise information on rehabilitation aspects of long-term medical conditions affecting adults. The book has two sections, one on clinical symptom-specific approaches and another on condition-specific approaches. The clinical approach section outlines the management of common symptoms encountered in rehabilitation settings. The section on specific conditions provides information that willenable the reader to put the symptoms in context with the condition and provide direct management in a comprehensive and holistic manner.As the practice in rehabilitation goes beyond dealing with condition specific symptoms and is more focused on problem solving, the handbook provides a solid grounding in managing common practical problems in functions such as mobility, cognition, sex, relationships and work productivity. The conditions covered include neurological, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiac, pulmonary, cancer, vascular, trauma and burns. The latest advances from the field of orthotics, prosthesis, wheelchairs,technical aids and rehabilitation technology are included. The content and layout within each chapter and handbook as a whole attempt to capture all the aspects of WHO ICF biopsychosocial model for health conditions.This Handbook, although aimed at medical doctors in the specialist area of Rehabilitation Medicine (also known as Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine in some countries), will prove useful to other members of the multidisciplinary rehabilitation team such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, psychologists, speech and language therapists, dieticians, support workers and any other allied healthcare professionals working in rehabilitation of chronic conditions. The Handbook willalso appeal to doctors in the related specialties like Neurology, Orthopaedics and Trauma, Palliative Medicine, Geriatrics, Pain Medicine and Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Non-Pharmacological Management of Osteoporosis
103,85 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This practical guide presents the most up-to-date information on the application of non-pharmacological and physical therapeutic measures, either used independently or in combination with pharmacotherapy, for the management of osteoporosis. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment for osteoporosis, but to improve the biomechanical competence of bone and improve quality of life, there needs to be more comprehensive management approach involving non-pharmacological methods. The book opens with a discussion of the diagnosis, pathophysiology, complications and consequences of osteoporosis. Exercise, nutrition, orthotics, and other rehabilitation measures such as whole body vibration and electrical muscle stimulation, each described in details in chapters of their own, have had a beneficial impact on fall and fracture prevention as well as recovery post-fracture. In addition, the application of acupuncture for pain management and movement-based mind-body therapies like tai chi and the Feldenkrais method are explored. Providing a description of independent and adjuvant techniques and practices for treatment and improving quality of life, Non-Pharmacological Management of Osteoporosis is an excellent resource for endocrinologists, bone specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and all clinical practitioners and staff working with osteoporosis patients.

Comprehensive and concise review of the essential facts needed to do a successful clinical rotation in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). Writing to be quickly read and comprehended, the authors spell out the implications of brain injury, the effects of spinal cord injury, the uses of orthotics and prosthetics, and the crucial importance of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation to maximize functional independence. Additional chapters detail the principles of pediatric, neuromuscular, cancer, and orthopedic rehabilitation, and demonstrate the use of electrodiagnostic techniques that can be used to help localize a lesion of the neuromuscular system and determine its severity, time course, and prognosis. The book also provides a handy review for passing PM&R board exams.

Amputation, Prosthesis Use, and Phantom Limb Pain
100,90 CHF *

The book will contain contributions from the fields of anthropology, biomedical engineering, computer science, neuroscience, nursing, prosthetics and orthotics, psychology, and rehabilitative medicine. It will be comprised of three broad interrelated sections. Following an introductory chapter in which the topics and chapters of the book are overviewed, the first section ('Providing and Monitoring the Use of Prostheses') will concentrate on the work of prostheticians and will consist of three chapters. The first of these, written by a clinician responsible for the provision of prosthetics in a large regional area of the UK, will present a range of ethical and medico-legal issues for rehabilitation professionals in the supply and withdrawal of prostheses and assistive technology for people with limb loss or deformity. The second chapter, provided by a prosthetician and prosthetic engineers, will present the development of an innovative computerized technique for monitoring upper limb prosthesis activity. The final chapter in this section is written by an anthropologist, himself an amputee, presenting ethnographic work on how prostheticians and their clients actually 'go about' providing artificial limbs. Together these chapters explicate the processes involved in prostheticians' work with clients in a manner which will be of interest to students and professionals from a range of disciplines. Section 2 ('The Experience and Meaning of Prosthesis Use') focuses on the experiences and meanings of prosthesis users themselves. The first of three chapters, written by members of the Dublin Psychoprothetics Group, explores the ways in which people adapt and cope with limb loss and using a prosthesis, the potential for positive adjustment and strengths emerging from the experience, pain, affective distress, issues around identity, body image, and the construction of self and quality of life. It also considers the importance of these issues for health service providers across the multidisciplinary team who work with people with limb loss. The second chapter provides a reflective critique of the themes in the book, namely, the process of prosthetic rehabilitation, by way of a reprint of Gelya Frank's classic paper 'Beyond Stigma: Visibility and Self-Empowerment of Persons with Congenital Limb Deficiencies,' along with a new commentary from the author herself. This chapter focuses on the experiences of people born with congenital limb deficiencies who have chosen not to use prosthetics as part of a strategy to counteract the stigmatization of disability and bodily difference. The views of these participants provide challenges to a range of professionals involved in the rehabilitation of people with amputations and limb deficiencies. The final chapter of this section presents a range of themes in the experiences of people who choose to use prosthetics following amputation or limb absence, including the embodied used of prosthesis and the integration of these into the identity of the persons concerned. The final section (postoperative pain and new treatments of phantom limb pain) focuses on phantom limb pain and emerging therapies for this phenomenon. The first of four chapters presents a clinician's account of post amputation pain, stressing how this is temporally dependent, varying at different stages of the perioperative/postoperative period, with possibly more than one pain being present at any time. In considering the complex amalgam of pain contributors the author argues for a full biopsychosocial assessment to be made with attention and treatment given to any associated mood disorder, disorder of cognition or behavioral maladaptations. These considerations are developed further in the following chapter where, written from a nursing perspective, the coping style of patients in relation to phantom limb pain are discussed and compared with other pain conditions. The final two chapters in this section present two emerging therapies for phantom limb pain which have received particular academic and media attention. This condition is notoriously difficult to treat, and the two chapters included here present the emergence of exciting new therapies. The first of these, written from a neuropsychological and nursing perspective
