The Oxford Handbook of Rehabilitation Medicine, third edition, provides concise information on rehabilitation aspects of long-term medical conditions affecting adults. It is updated with the latest evidence-based research to give a current overview of the field and guides students and professionals through two key sections; clinical symptom-specific approaches and 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 will enable 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 also included.NEW TO THIS EDITIONExpanded scope, with new chapters on rehabilitation aspects of musculoskeletal conditions, pain, cancer, old age, cardiac conditions, and pulmonary conditionsNew applications of assistive technology in the field of Rehabilitation Medicine have been included since the previous editionChapters are laid out to match the WHO ICF framework for health conditionsNew artwork and flowchart algorithms have been added to aid in understanding complex topics
