Shumway-Cook and Woolacott just improve this text with the latest edition. This text explains motor control thoroughly from pathology to disability for the clincian. If you're looking for tricks and techniques like many therapists this is not you. But, if you enjoy research to back up what you do- buy this.

This book is focusing on Motor theories. Wealth and rich of new Neurorehabilitation concepts, however, this book is not helpful for those who are looking for Neurorehabilitation Techniques in clinical context. This book is not good for someone e.i Physiacl Therapist who is looking for clinical details about the Neurological techniques.

Motor Control: Translating Research into Clinical Practice is an excelent reading for all physical therapists. The content is very well written and in an easy way. I am Brazilian and, at least in Rio de Janeiro where I live, Dr. Shumway-Cook's book offer a different point-of-view to the new PT's to not only evaluate neurological patients but also to develop a better treatment planning.

i have been out of school and in clinical practice for 25 years, and though i take numerous cont ed courses, the rehabilitation field is rapidly changing. the phrase "evidence based practice" wasn't even in use when i was in school. Believe it or not, i've read this book on the beach and under shade trees on beautiful days, compelled by the models of motor control/movement/coordination that have emerged since my college days. clinicians who want to provide top notch services and who are a dozen or more years out of school may appreciate the opportunity to study new research, learn new assessments, and upgrade their practice. It may not be everyone's idea of a summer read, but it is definitely enlightening and worthwhile.

I used for the postural control sections. Has been updated to be contemporary from earlier edition. It was the only text I could find that presented postural control at an introductory/practical level. Both authors are well-known authorities in their work on postural control, too.

Practical approach to motor learning and motor control for the physical therapist. Definitely helps the doctor learn how to teach the patient.
