Because comprehensive rehabilitation has not been fully integrated into the medical curriculum, many medical students and practicing physicians lack knowledge of both the principles and the techniques of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Both aspects are presented in Krusen's Handbook.
Special techniques of evaluation that are discussed include electrodiagnosis and electromyography, gait analysis, speech and communication, psychological assessment, prevocational evaluation, and epidemiology of disability. Dr. Kottke presents his interpretation of the existing scientific data on the neurophysiology of motor function, a controversial subject. A new chapter presents a system of health accounting of the rehabilitation process from admission to response.
