NEW YORK, NY -- Thieme Publishing Group has announced the release of Physical Therapy for the Stroke Patient, which covers issues that physical therapists working with stroke patients must confront, such as assessment of patients' abilities, care during the acute phase, early mobilization, effects of medication, risk factors, and ethical questions.

The book includes a chapter titled "Optimizing Functional Motor Recovery after Stroke" by Janet Carr and Roberta Shepherd, pioneers in the field of correlating motor learning and stroke recovery.
