Abstract

With chapters by many of the foremost international authorities on aging, neurology, physical therapy, and rehabilitation, this reference provides an up-to-date review of approaches to gait disorders and falls. This volume presents the fundamental concepts of gait and describes the changes in mobility with aging and disease. A focus is placed on recent assessment and intervention practices for common gait disorders, especially those seen in older adults, including sections on neuro-psychological influences, fear of falling and exercise, and strategies for specific disease groups, such as patients with neurological disorders or those recovering from stroke or hip surgery.
