The January issue of The Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy is now available. In this issue Klamroth and colleagues performed a meta analysis on the effects of exercise on postural instability in people with Parkinson Disease. Chiou and colleagues explored cross facilitation and its relationship with motor status of the affected upper extremity in people with stroke. Using a randomized cross over design, Sparrow and colleagues investigated the effects of a theory-driven, progressive, highly challenging group exercise program on falls and balance in people with Parkinson Disease. Kizony and colleagues explored the impact of tablet app-based hand activities on impaired dexterity post stroke. Lin and colleagues explored anticipatory postural adjustments during gait initiation in people with Parkinson Disease.
Also available in this issue is the Neurology Section programming schedule for the upcoming Combined Sections Meeting in February, as well as a list of platform and poster presentations. The full platform and poster abstracts are available at the CSM abstract archives.
