    This book provides an overview of attentional impairments in brain-damaged patients from both clinical and neuroscientific perspectives, and aims to offer a comprehensive, succinct treatment of these topics useful to both clinicians and scholars. A main focus of the book concerns left visual neglect, a dramatic but often overlooked consequence of right hemisphere damage, usually of vascular origin, but also resulting from other causes such as neurodegenerative conditions. The study of neglect offers a key to understand the brain's functioning at the level of large-scale networks, and not only based on discrete anatomical structures. Patients are often unaware of their deficits (anosognosia), and often obstinately deny being hemiplegic. Diagnosis is important because neglect predicts poor functional outcome in stroke. Moreover, effective rehabilitation strategies are available, and there are promising possibilities for pharmacological treatments. Attention Disorders After Right Brain Damage is aimed at clinical neurologists, medics in physical medicine and rehabilitation, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists. It will also be useful for graduate students and medical students who wish to understand the topic of attention systems and improve their knowledge of the neurocognitive mechanisms of attentional deficits. In addition, clinical researchers in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience will find in this book an up to date overview of current research dealing with the attention systems of the human brain.

    The impaired brain has often been difficult to rehabilitate owing to limited knowledge of the brain system. Recently, advanced imaging techniques such as fMRI and MEG have allowed researchers to investigate spatiotemporal dynamics in the living human brain. Consequently, knowledge in systems neuroscience is now rapidly growing. Advanced techniques have found practical application by providing new prosthetics, such as brain?machine interfaces, expanding the range of activities of persons with disabilities, or the elderly. The book?s chapters are authored by researchers from various research fields such as systems neuroscience, rehabilitation, neurology, psychology, and engineering. The book explores the latest advancements in neurorehabilitation, plasticity, and brain?machine interfaces among others, and constitutes a solid foundation for researchers who aim to contribute to the science of brain function disabilities and ultimately to the well-being of patients and the elderly worldwide.

    Roland Schiffter, Professor of Neurology, Former Head Physician, Vivantes Augste-Viktoria Hospital and Vivantes-wenckeback Hospital, Berlin, Germany, Elke Harms, Former Practising Physical and Massage therapist, Oldenburg, Germany ; with the collaboration of Nancy Toner Weinberger, Youngsville, NC, USA.
    "In 1929 Germany, physiotherapist Elisabeth Dicke suffered from poor circulation in her right leg, acute back pain, and a host of other ailments. With no medical options offered beyond amputation of the leg, she turned to her own training for help. She began to massage the skin and subcutaneous fascia of the sacral bone and pelvic crest with pulling strokes. After several applications, she experienced less back pain, increased circulation to the leg, and within three months, disappearance of all symptoms. This was the beginning of Dickes systematic, scientifically based treatment method of connective tissue massage (or Bindegewebsmassage), now in wide use throughout the world. In this book, practitioners will get the first detailed, how-to description of connective tissue massage (CTM) {in the English language} including the principles, knowledge, and skills to implement it. Special Features: Begins with the origin and practical benefits of CTM, including its neuroanatomical and neurophysiological basis, Explores the relationship between the sensory, motor, and autonomic nervous systems and the complex reflex mechanisms that are activated by CTM therapy, Describes and illustrates specific stroking techniques that trigger the appropriate neural reflexes in every body segment, Shows how to make a diagnostic assessment based on skin, connective tissue, and muscle zones, Covers the full range of orthopedic, neurological, internal medicine, and gynecologic disorders that can be effectively treated with CTM. Complete with treatment plans, indications and contraindications, and modern medical guidelines, this book is essential for all physical and massage therapists and osteopaths who want to successfully integrate CTM into their practices. It is also a fascinating reference for physicians and other medical professionals who are interested in learning more about this important manual technique." --Provided by publisher.

    This dissertation presents the first three-dimensional musculoskeletal simulations of individuals with cerebral palsy and has contributed to our understanding of how muscle contributions, joint loads, and the effects of muscle weakness change in individuals with cerebral palsy and crouch gait. The simulations created for these analyses have been made freely-available for researchers and clinicians to download, use, and evaluate at This work has provided insight into the underlying dynamics of crouch gait and created pathways to improve treatment. The first objective of this dissertation was to examine how individual muscles contribute to motion during crouch gait. We evaluated how muscles contribute to joint and mass center accelerations to support and propel the body during crouch gait and how these contributions change with crouch severity. The results of these analyses indicated that crouch gait uses similar muscles to support and propel the body as unimpaired gait; however, larger and more sustained muscle activity is required during crouch gait, which contributes to the inefficiencies of this gait pattern. The second objective of this dissertation was to examine how the compressive tibiofemoral force changes in individuals with cerebral palsy and crouch gait. Knee pain is common among individuals with crouch gait and the results of this study demonstrated that tibiofemoral load increases quadratically with crouch severity. Individuals who walk in a severe crouch gait experience three-times the tibiofemoral load than during unimpaired gait. The elevated tibiofemoral forces during crouch gait could contribute to cartilage degeneration and knee pain. The final objective of this dissertation was to examine how muscle weakness may contribute to crouch gait. We used musculoskeletal simulations to determine how much muscle groups can be weakened and still reproduce mild and moderate crouch gait. The results of this analysis demonstrated that crouch gait requires greater quadriceps strength but less hip abductor and ankle plantarflexor strength than unimpaired gait; suggesting that these latter muscles may be better targets for strength training programs. We also performed a meta-analysis of individuals with crouch gait who had participated in strength training programs. This analysis demonstrated that outcomes after strength training are inconsistent, even among individuals with cerebral palsy and crouch gait. Hamstring spasticity was associated with poor outcomes after strength training and may be a contraindication for strength training. The long term goal of the work presented in this dissertation is to improve quality of life for individuals with cerebral palsy. The freedom to walk, explore, and interact with the world is a skill that many of us take for granted every day. Through the combination of musculoskeletal modeling and simulation, experimental studies, and clinical outcomes we can help individuals with gait pathologies achieve this freedom throughout their life.

    Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most common injuries to the knee. Unfortunately, individuals who experience this injury are likely to develop osteoarthritis of the knee much earlier than would be expected due to the normal ageing process, and this remains true even after surgical reconstruction of the ligament. Research has suggested that a major contributing factor to the development of premature osteoarthritis is altered knee mechanics which change the loading conditions of the cartilage in the joint. Furthermore, it has been shown that altered knee mechanics are present following rupture of the ACL and persist after reconstruction surgery. Despite initial reports, there still remains a need for a comprehensive understanding of both altered knee mechanics in both ACL deficient and ACL reconstructed knees as well as changes in cartilage morphology following ACL injury. Therefore, the goal of this dissertation is to address the question of the relationship between certain changes in knee mechanics and cartilage morphology as they relate to the development of osteoarthritis following both ACL injury and reconstruction. The first study presented involves an analysis of the knee mechanics in individuals with unilateral ACL deficiencies. This group was important in that they were free of knee pain and had no sign of osteoarthritis on MRI over a time frame that ranged up to three decades from injury. This provided a unique opportunity to explore the potential for a protective functional adaption. The results of this study suggest that alteration in knee mechanics may act as a protective mechanism against osteoarthritis development since when subjects were separated into "Short Term" and "Long Term", based upon the time from injury, only those in the "Long Term" group demonstrated a relationship between the external knee flexion moment, which is representative of the interaction between quadriceps and hamstrings muscle to control rotation and translation during walking. This is indicative of an adaptive control mechanism present in some subjects who were able to last many years after the injury without reconstruction surgery. These results suggest the potential for new methods for rehabilitation following ACL injury. The second study presented involves an analysis of the knee mechanics of individuals with unilateral ACL reconstructions during gait, stair ascent, and stair descent at two years from surgery. The results demonstrate a reduction in the external joint moments of ACL reconstructed knees and an increase in the joint moments of uninjured contralateral knees during each activity compared to healthy controls. This suggests two things: 1.) compensation for residual muscle weakness in the affected limb is needed by the contralateral knee during ambulation and 2.) a decrease in daily joint loading in ACL reconstructed knees and an increase in joint loading in contralateral knees. Decreased loading of the ACL reconstructed knee may seem counterintuitive to what was expected in patients who will likely develop premature osteoarthritis in this knee. However, this finding is consistent with the suggestion that changes in joint kinematics and even decreased joint loading following the injury may contribute to the initial cartilage breakdown. Note: Taken together the results of study 1 and 2 suggest that the interaction between muscle function and kinematics should be further considered in the development of knee OA in this population. The third and final study involves articular cartilage morphology analysis of individuals with unilateral ACL reconstructions at two and four years from surgery. The results illustrate differences between cartilage thickness of ACL reconstructed and healthy contralateral knees at both times of testing. The findings show significantly thinner cartilage in the lateral tibial compartment of ACL reconstructed knees at two years from surgery. These differences became more pronounced at four years from surgery and include the addition of a significantly thicker medial region of the tibia of ACL reconstructed knees compared to healthy contralateral knees. The results indicate that patterns of cartilage thickness change are detectable as early two years following ACL reconstruction, and these patterns become more pronounced at 4 years which suggests cartilage begins a degenerative pathway substantially in advance of clinically detectable OA. This finding is important since it provides a basis for assessing early interventions to reduce the risk of knee OA following ACL injury. This dissertation helps to further the understanding of altered knee mechanics following both ACL rupture and reconstruction. In addition, a possible pattern of OA initiation has been reported. Each of these studies will benefit future studies with the ultimate goal of a complete understanding of OA initiation and development in ACL ruptured and reconstructed knees.

    Osteoarthritis (OA) is among the top 10 of most disabling diseases in the Western world. It is the major cause of pain and disability among the elderly. This book provides a contextual review of recent research on neuromuscular factors and behavioral risk factors for functional decline in OA, with a special emphasis on explanatory mechanisms. In addition, the book discusses innovative approaches to exercise and physical activity in OA, derived from research on behavioral and neuromuscular risk factors for functional decline in OA. Recent research has shown that neuromuscular factors (such as muscle strength, joint laxity) and behavioral factors (such as avoidance of activity, depressed mood) predict pain and disability in OA. Furthermore, exercise and physical activity are among the dominant interventions aiming at reducing pain and disability, and innovative interventions targeting neuromuscular and behavioral interventions have been recently developed. This research has been published as separate papers, with the result that the field is in need of an integrative contextual review that puts the research into theoretical perspective.

    Hip pathology and nonarthritic hip conditions have only recently been recognized as a cause of hip pain. In 2003, Ganz, Leunig and colleagues described the concept of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) as a cause of hip pain and a mechanism for end-stage hip osteoarthritis.Ganz et al. also postulated that 70-90% of hip osteoarthritis is likely due to abnormal hip mechanics related to FAI, dysplasia, or other hip deformities. Over the past ten years, the treatment of these non-arthritic hip pathologies has grown dramatically, and has been estimated to grow by 15% each year. It is the largest segment of grown in sports medicine and orthopedics as a whole. However, no definitive reference yet exists on hip arthroscopy and hip joint preservation surgery. While books have been published on hip arthroscopy, these texts are limited to the technical aspects of the procedure and do not explore content related to hip joint preservation surgery. The scope of this book covers the basic science of hip pathology, anatomy, biomechanics, pathology, and treatment.℗ℓ It has put together up-to-date research and has invited opinion leaders in the field to contribute to the text. The book is focused on disease pathology and provides comprehensive information on each disease topic, which is followed by technique-driven chapters to provide surgeons a reference for any procedure related to non-arthritic conditions of the hip.

    Managing the Injured Athlete is an innovative clinically-focused pocketbook which aims to support the clinician out in the field, helping answer clinical queries and solve problems when there may be nothing else to refer to. It focuses on developing the clinician's clinical reasoning skills, recognizing that patterns of clinical presentation are the key to problem-solving and formulating a diagnosis. As well as covering assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, the experienced authors discuss the clinician's role within a team, athlete confidentiality, travelling with athletes, drugs and doping issues, working in different climates and return to play considerations. Throughout the pocketbook patterns of positive findings are given as a key to indicate how frequently clinicians can expect to come across certain subjective and objective markers for a given condition. Starts from the point of subjective and objective examination - assessment not diagnosis Highlighted evidence points to solid literature supporting the intervention described Clinical Tips and Further Reading Case studies demonstrate principles of injury rehabilitation in practice Handy, durable format small enough to use in the field and for quick reference.

    Presenting a logical, comprehensive approach to the patient with a massive rotator cuff tear, this book begins with the pathoanatomy and diagnostic work-up for this common injury, including imaging. Both non-operative and operative treatment options for massive tears follow, including arthroscopy, the use of biologics and patches, tendon transfers, and hemiarthroplasty and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. A practical treatment algorithm for clinicians treating patients with massive rotator cuff tears is also included. Each chapter opens with pearls and pitfalls covering the main key points for quick reference. The overarching theme of this book is that patients with similar imaging findings may demonstrate very different clinical presentations, and the final treatment recommendation should be made based on their complaints and expectations. As such, it will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and shoulder physicians, physiatrists, physical medicine and rehab specialists, and occupational therapists.

    "Clinical evidence clearly demonstrates that physical therapeutic measures begun as soon as possible after a stroke, often within 24 to 48 hours, greatly increase everyday competence and quality of life. Physical Therapy for the Stroke Patient: Early Stage Rehabilitation covers all the issues that physical therapists must deal with in this critical period: assessment of patients' abilities; care during the acute phase; early mobilization; effects of medication; risk factors; ethical questions; and much more. It provides complete guidelines on how to examine and treat the patient, the dosage" of physical therapy required, and the key differences between early and late stage rehabilitation after stroke. Special Features Information-packed chapter on Optimizing Functional Motor Recovery after Stroke," written by J. Carr and R. Shepherd, pioneers in the field and the first to correlate motor learning and stroke recovery Case studies throughout the book offering direct, hands-on examples of evaluation and treatment methods Nearly 150 color photographs demonstrating step-by-step physical therapy techniques used in actual practice Hundreds of references to the literature that support the evidence-based approach presented in the book For all physical and occupational therapists who must answer the question, How much therapy will help my patient?", this book provides clear, well-informed answers. Not only will it increase your therapeutic skills and confidence, but it will also expand your knowledge of the medical issues and long-term outcomes for the post-stroke patients in your care"--Provided by publisher.

    PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) is a concept to therapeutic exercise which therapists all over the world have found effective for treating patients with a wide range of diagnoses. The approach presented in this richly illustrated guide is based on the concepts set out by Dr. Herman Kabat and taught by Margaret Knott. The fully revised fourth edition demonstrates how the principles of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and aspects of motor learning and motor control (from hands-on to hands-off management) are applied in modern PNF evaluation and treatment. A new fresh fully-coloured design and layout highlights the clearly structured way in which philosophy, basic procedures and treatment patterns of PNF are based. New for this edition -Fully revised introductory chapter on the PNF basics, now including discussion and demonstration of ICF and Motor Learning aspects in detailed case study. -Throughout chapters, new additional case studies that help visualize the application of PNF applications in promoting the patients everyday-life motor skills on activity and participation levels.
