Fully updated and revised Orthopedic Massage has been written for those interested in understanding and applying massage as an intervention for soft-tissue disorders. Recent research into the physiological effects of massage has strengthened the justification for its use in the treatment of soft-tissue pain and injury conditions. Orthopedic soft-tissue problems are common among the general population, whether from sports, occupational activities, or chronic pain. This text presents a comprehensive and in-depth look at the physiological nature of these conditions and the massage treatments most effective for their relief. A particular contribution this text makes is its validation for the role of massage in treating orthopedic conditions. In addition, it aims to help the clinician understand the relationship between the soft tissues to which they apply their techniques and the overall orthopedic disorder affecting their clients. Although written chiefly for massage practitioners, the lessons it teaches are relevant to any practitioner who is concerned with the treatment of soft-tissue injuries.
  • Includes detailed technical information, extensive illustrations, and reliable reference material essential to everyday practice.
  • Provides a comprehensive approach to treatment of common soft tissue pain and injury.
  • Explains common orthopedic problems in detail, addressing biomechanics, kinesiology, and anatomy.
  • Provides an in-depth discussion of the physiologic rationale for soft tissue treatments and explains those most effective for each condition.
  • Integrates treatment approaches from across the field and gives detailed, easy-to-follow steps for their application.
  • Compares traditional treatments with soft tissue manipulation for each problem discussed.
  • Clearly links anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics with clinical practice.
  • Designed for quick and easy reference with more than 200 high-quality full colour illustrations and numerous photos of treatment techniques.
  • New clinical case studies and tips illustrate the techniques discussed.
  • Now presented in full colour.
  • New step-by-step photographs depict the techniques described in full detail.
  • Increased artwork and photographs make learning more visual.
  • Case studies demonstrate techniques and management in clinical practice Clinical hints and tips throughout.
  • Greater guidance in treatment strategies to include 'Treatment Approaches' and 'Rehabilitation Protocol Considerations'.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
