    Summary: This comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the rehabilitation care of persons with spinal cord injuries and disorders draws on the ever-expanding scientific and clinical evidence base to provide clinicians with the knowledge needed in order to make optimal management decisions during the acute, subacute, and chronic phases. The second edition re-organized contents as more clinically practical use, consisting of 48 chapters. Also, new chapters such as kinesiology and kinematics of functional anatomy of the extremities are added as well. Readers will also find chapters on the basics of functional anatomy, neurological classification and evaluation, injuries specifically in children and the elderly, and psychological issues. The book will be an invaluable aid to assessment and medical care for physicians and other professional personnel in multiple specialties, including physiatrists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, internists, critical care physicians, urologists, neurologists, psychologists, and social workers.
