THE STROKE PATIENT: The Condition and the Patient by Martha Taylor & John E. Sarno

THE STROKE PATIENT: The Condition and the Patient

Email this review


In question and answer presentation, an orderly and quite specific discussion of strokes and the degrees of impairment and rehabilitation possible. The authors define the various terms; the causes of the episode (the process may date back 30 to 40 years) and the predisposing factors in arteriosclerosis; the physical damage (which may not be immediately determined) and tests thereof; the various speech disorders, intellectual incapacitation and emotional side effects. This is all structured toward the family of those who have suffered a stroke and it is the first book of its kind since Irving Page's clinical-popular symposium of 1961, Strokes. Dr. Sarno and his wife have spent many years in this area of rehabilitation to which their book will be any additional service.
