The Science Practice of Manual Therapy Excerpt :

This practical book offers an extensive examination of how manual therapy (MT) techniques work, and how to match the most suitable techniques to different conditions. Drawing on evidence-based research, it explores the physiological, neurological and psychophysiological responses of the human body to MT techniques. In doing so, it helps MT practitioners deliver a more effective and safer treatment for a broader range of conditions. Comprehensive overview helps provide an understanding of how and why MT techniques work. Content is written in jargon-free, easy-to-read style, with most terms explained. Text is enhanced by over 120 diagrams, photographs and tables. Manual pain relief is extensively discussed throughout the book. Section 1 examines the direct effects of manual therapy on connective tissue and muscle physiology, examining how MT can help assist repair and adaptation processes in these tissues. Section 2 examines the effect of MT on the neuromuscular system, identifying conditions where neuromuscular dysfunctions can be treated by MT. Section 3 examines the psychological, emotional and behavioral impacts of MT, in addition to the psychophysiological affects of MT, including psychomotor, neuroendocrine, and autonomic responses. More than 1,000 references relevant to manual therapy are included, making this an essential source book for students and researchers of MT. Content is completely rewritten, extensively updated and expanded, adding new research material, novel clinical approaches, and demonstrations of new techniques and assessments. Pain coverage is expanded. More information is included on the responses of muscle to mechanical stimuli when applying MT techniques.

Functional Exercise Prescription Excerpt :

Functional Exercise Prescription in Movement Rehabilitation and Sport presents a revolutionary new approach for exercise prescription that provides personalised and condition-specific management. It focuses on how the individual's movement repertoire, including daily activities, can be amplified to provide personalised rehabilitation in many musculoskeletal and pain conditions. It also uses a Process model for exercise prescription, which enables the practitioner to construct a condition-specific management protocol. A Process Approach identifies three natural processes associated with recovery from any musculoskeletal and pain conditions - predominantly: repair, adaptation and modulation of symptoms. Each of these processes requires a unique management that extends to self-care and exercise. This book explains how to identify the individual's recovery process and how to develop exercise routines and physical challenges that are within the daily and sports activities of the individual ('the life gym'). The book will enhance the practitioner's understanding of movement rehabilitation science and provide practical tools to construct a tailor-made plan that will help expedite and optimise the individual's recovery.

Therapeutic Stretching Excerpt :

This book offers a highly accessible account of the latest information regarding the role of therapeutic stretching in the management of restricted range of movement (ROM) disorders. This book covers the physiological basis of stretching, explores its classification and examines what is normal and abnormal in terms of ROM. It explains the processes that are associated with ROM loss and recovery as well as what makes stretching effective. The experience of pain, sensitization and pain tolerance in relation to stretching and ROM recovery are also discussed. Embracing the latest scientific research, this book debunks many traditionally accepted stretching theories and associated techniques and supplants them with a more robust, scientifically valid system of practice.

Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance Excerpt :

Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approachblends postural techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities in order to alleviate chronic musculoskeletal pain and promote greater functionality. Developed by Vladimir Janda, respected neurologist and physiotherapist , the Janda approach presents a unique perspective to rehabilitation. In contrast to a more traditional structural view, the Janda approach is functional—emphasizing the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes from sports and general activities.Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approachis the only text to offer practical, evidence-based application of Janda’s theories. Filled with illustrations, photos, and step-by-step instructions, Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalanceuses a systematic approach in presenting information that can be used in tandem with other clinical techniques. This resource for practitioners features the following tools: --A rationale for rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal sytem based on the relationship between the central nervous system and the motor system --A systematic method for the functional examination of the muscular system --Treatment processes focusing on the triad of normalization of peripheral structures, restoration of muscle balance, and facilitation of afferent systems and sensorimotor training --The role of muscle imbalance and functional pathology of sensorimotor systems for specific pain complaints, including cervical pain syndrome, upper- and lower-extremity pain syndromes, and low back pain syndromes Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalanceprovides an evidence-based explanation of muscle imbalance. The step-by-step Janda system of evaluation is explained—including analysis of posture, balance, and gait; evaluation of movement patterns; testing of muscle length; and assessment of the soft tissue.

Therapeutic Exercise Protocols Excerpt :

This book is for individuals who would like to help other individuals to recover their control of movement. Neuromuscular rehabilitation is straightforward and uncomplicated: we all do it naturally all of the time. Throughout our lives we learn new movement patterns or recover our control after an injury. The means by which we achieve these changes are no different to neuromuscular rehabilitation. They all rely on the same neurophysiological, psychological and behavioral processes. Neuromuscular rehabilitation integrates several branches of knowledge. They include medical, neurophysiological, psychological behavioral and motor-control sciences as well as manual and physical therapy fields. The enormity of available information from these diverse sources can be overwhelming, in particular when trying to translate this information into a practical clinical approach. The main aim in writing this book was to collate and integrate all this information and present it in a practical, user-friendly format. Over the years of working in clinics I have observed that neuromuscular rehabilitation of a person after joint surgery or musculoskeletal injury bears close resemblance to the clinical management of a stroke patient. It was clear to me that there is a unifying model for neuromuscular rehabilitation. However, it took a good decade and a half to put it together into a coherent and cohesive model, and one which is still being tinkered with. This unified model for neuromuscular rehabilitation is described throughout the book.

Functional Exercise Prescription Excerpt :

In Functional Exercise Prescription, Eyal Lederman presents a revolutionary new approach for exercise prescription that uses the individual's own movement repertoire. The book demonstrates how daily activities (the life gym) can be amplified to provide the necessary movement challenges to support movement rehabilitation in many musculoskeletal and pain conditions. Hence, all activities can become remedial without the need to prescribe unfamiliar exercise; in other words, 'how to exercise without exercise' or 'how to rehabilitate without exercise'. People recover from most musculoskeletal and pain conditions through three key processes: repair, adaptation, and alleviation of symptoms. The author explains how to identify the individual's recovery process and how to select the appropriate daily or sporting activities, and, how they can be modified to support recovery. Functional Exercise Prescription is a dramatic departure from the traditional strength and conditioning models that have been used for rehabilitation. The book explores the limitation of these models and explains how they can be replaced by functional daily activities ('functioncise'). It provides the practitioner with practical tools to construct a tailor-made plan for each individual to help expedite and optimize their recovery. Most rehabilitation can be constructed from a small familiar set of daily or sports activities. All human physical activity is exercise. Life is your gym.
