"Therapy for Amputees" is a book for all those who work with amputees. Written by a multidisciplinary team for a multidisciplinary readership, this book addresses all aspects of care and rehabilitation for this group of clients. The approach of the book is practical and easy to follow making it appropriate for use by the amputees themselves and those caring for them at home. It addresses the day to day problems of rehabilitation therapists and their clients in a practical way and considers the provision of care and rehabilitation for amputees as it is managed today. Originally published under the title "Physiotherapy for Amputees the Roehampton Approach" this new edition takes a broad team approach to this area of rehabilitation which reflects current practice. It acknowledges that the majority of clients now receive rehabilitation therapy in the general hospital setting or at home in the community.
