It is an essential reference for all members of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team.One third of people after stroke, having survived the first few weeks, return home with significant residual disability, and can therefore benefit from an active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme. This is a comprehensive guide to rehabilitation after stroke, in which leading international authorities set out the basic neuroscientific principles that underlie brain recovery, including chapters on neural plasticity and neural imaging, and describe appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the many different functional problems that can arise after stroke. These include movement disorders, sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, problems with continence and secual difficulties, and cognitive disorders. Also covered are measurement of disability and quality of life, assistive technology and vocational rehabilitation.

    The brain is very plastic and has a great ability to teach another part of the brain to take over from the effected area of the brain. There are lots treatments to help archive this, including Mirror Box Therapy that has lots of evidence that it works. There is a great website www.mirrorboxtherapy.com with great info and a link to where you can buy a folding mirror box.
