Management of Spasticity in Cerebral Palsy: The Role of Intrathecal Baclofen

Long-term control of spasticity "This is the most comprehensive book on the practical treatment of spasticity in children with cerebral palsy available today. It provides, for both the novice and the experienced clinician, a complete overview of the issues facing the child with cerebral palsy as well as a template for managing movement disorders and hypertonicity. Clinicians who manage these children will now have a single reference to consult to answer their, and the children's families', difficult questions."
