Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders
Highly experienced clinician-researchers distill the immense amount of new information now available about movement disorders to create a practice-oriented tutorial for all physicians treating movement disorders. Their book helps physicians to distinguish each disorder, providing a basic understanding of both the test and treatment options needed in active practices, as well as the effective use of the therapeutic recommendations of consulting specialists. The first half of the book is devoted to Parkinson's disease and conditions masquerading as parkinsonism, while the remainder details the recognition and treatment of tremor, dystonia, chorea, myoclonus, tics, gait disorders, the ataxias, conditions resulting in spasms, and restless legs syndrome. In all cases, Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines for the Practicing Physician provides sufficient background so that even relatively inexperienced clinicians can readily master the diagnosis and treatment of these neurologic conditions.
