Review:

"A Selection of the "American Stroke Association's" 2009 Annual Summer Reading List"The subjects covered in detail in this book are not commonly found in other consumer health books on the subject of stroke; therefore, it would make a good addition to most consumer health collections."--CAPHIS, Medical Library Association "This is an extremely important book...It is a truly inspirational accomplishment and it will significantly improve the lives of all those who are affected by stroke. [Levine] makes the new and increasingly accepted therapeutic principle that - the mind can change the brain - come alive for the very population of people who can benefit from it most. It is a wonderful achievement!"-- Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., Author of The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force "Stroke survivors and their families have a fine guide to recovery in STRONGER AFTER STROKE, an excellent survey of basic concepts of the process of recovery after a stroke. From special challenges at different stages of recovery to basic concepts of setting goals and passing hurdles, STRONGER AFTER STROKE provides a powerful roadmap to recovery and is a top pick for any general-interest or health collection."" -- California Bookwatch "At last! A stroke researcher guide that stroke survivors and their families can take home with them - Stronger after Stroke: Your Roadmap to Recovery is a stroke survivor's guide for recovery that places the stroke survivor in charge of the choices they will make towards their personal goals and growth"--Cleo Hutton, LPN, Author of After a Stroke: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier and Striking Back at Stroke: A Doctor-Patient Journal "This book can serve as positive inspiration for patients with stroke that will face such a long and arduous journey."--Lisa Lombardo, editor ADVANCE for Physical Therapists and PT Assistants ..".researcher with the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Cincinnati presents a more effective treatment philosophy."-- ForeWord Magazine "This inspirational volume is written specifically for stroke survivors and their caregivers. It presents an upbeat, empowering and hopeful message that urges stroke survivors not to accept the status quo of stroke rehabilitation but to expect more and be actively invested in achieving optimal outcomes. Not only do I believe this tome should be required reading for stroke survivors, I think it should be required reading for all OTs and rehabilitation professionals."-- Deborah E. Budash, MA, OTR/L, Advance for Occupational Therapy Practitioners.--Deborah "Budash, MA, OTR/L""dvance for Occupational Therapy Practitioners." (05/03/2010)

Synopsis:

Billions of dollars are spent on stroke-related rehabilitation research and treatment techniques but most are not well communicated to the patient or caregiver. As a result, many stroke survivors are treated with outdated or ineffective therapies. "Stronger After Stroke" puts the power of recovery in the reader's hands by providing simple to follow instructions for reaching the highest possible level of healing.Written for stroke survivors, their caregivers, and loved ones, "Stronger After Stroke" presents a new and more effective treatment that is startling in its simplicity: stroke survivors recover by using the same learning techniques that anyone uses to master anything. Basic concepts are covered, including: repetition of task-specific movements; proper scheduling of practice; challenges at each stage of recovery; and, setting goals and recognizing when they have been achieved.The book covers the basic techniques that can catapult stroke survivors toward maximum recovery. "Stronger After Stroke" bridges the gap between stroke survivors and what they desperately need: easily understandable and scientifically accurate information on how to achieve optimal rehabilitation.Sections of this title are as follows: Elements Crucial To Recovery From Stroke; Recovery Hints And Tricks; Safeguarding The Recovery Investment; Cool Treatment Options; Elements Of Exercise Essential To Recovery; Recovery Strategies; Spasticity Control And Elimination; Motivation: The Recovery Fuel; and, Recovery Machines.
