"This edited handbook provides a comprehensive resource to inform and guide health and rehabilitation practitioners as they engage in the rehabilitation process with multiple sclerosis patients.

The first section offers an overview of MS basics; the next two sections describe MS rehabilitation to manage impairments and to enhance activity and participation among MS patients; and the final section presents contextual factors that may influence MS rehabilitation efforts" -From the publisher.
