Motor Control is the only text to bridge the gap between current motor control research and its applications to clinical practice. It gives you a full arsenal of best-evidence tools and information to examine, diagnose, and treat patients who have problems with balance, mobility, and upper extremity function.After a review of the latest theories of motor control, motor learning, and recovery of function, students are provided with a conceptual framework for clinical practice and a practical framework for understanding and examining impairments in patients with neurological deficits. Armed with a solid foundation, students then build a thorough understanding of motor control issues as they relate to posture and balance, mobility, and upper extremity function. For each of these three key areas, the authors discuss normal control processes, age-related issues, abnormal function, and the clinical applications of current research.

Shumway-Cook, Anne,


Motor Control, 5th Edition remains the only book available that bridges the gap between current and emerging motor control research and its application to clinical practice. Written by leading experts in the field, this now classic resource prepares readers to effectively examine and treat patients with problems related to postural control, mobility, and upper extremity function using today's evidence-based best practices. To make information easier to understand and follow, chapters follow a standard format: normal control process issues, age-related issues, research on abnormal function, and clinical applications of current research, including methods for examining and treating patients with motor dyscontol in each area. Featuring new pedagogy, new videos, and separate lifespan chapters on development of mobility and aging and mobility, the Fifth Edition reflects the current explosion of research in the field of motor control.
