About this book


This case-based text provides treatment approaches to common and uncommon movement disorders. The first two parts of the book are devoted to the wide spectrum of motor and non-motor problems encountered in caring for people with Parkinson’s disease, as well as Parkinsonian syndromes. Next are parts with chapters addressing essential and other tremor disorders followed by management of the various dystonic syndromes and other hyperkinetic disorders including chorea, tics, and myoclonus. Other disorders covered are drug-induced movement disorders, psychogenic movement disorders, Wilson’s disease, hemifacial spasm and more. Authored by experts globally, this practical guide will help physicians, other healthcare professionals and trainees care for patients with a wide spectrum of movement disorder related problems.
