Published Reviews

"This is a well-written, thoroughly referenced, and highly practical book for rehabilitation clinicians who work with patients with spinal cord injury. While there are other books that train rehabilitation therapists about spinal cord injury management, this book provides somewhat more of an evidence base to support the practices."
