Neuromuscular Rehabilitation in Manual and Physical Therapy explores the vast and complex discipline of neuromuscular rehabilitation and simplifies it for clinical use. It is a practical source book for practitioners of manual and physical therapy who work with movement rehabilitation after musculoskeletal injury and pain conditions, sports rehabilitation, surgery and central nervous system damage. The book is a synthesis of over half a century of research and can be described as 'neuromuscular rehabilitation made easy'. It explores movement control and how it is affected by injury, pain and central damage. It provides practical solutions and comprehensive demonstrations (DVD) of movement rehabilitation for the upper and lower limbs and the trunk/spine. 1. Introduction 2. Motor control 3. Motor abilities 4. Sensory abilities 5. Motor adaptation 6. Plasticity in the motor system 7. Motor reorganisation in musculoskeletal injury 8. Cognitive and behavioural considerations in neuromuscular rehabilitation 9. Managing non-traumatic pain conditions 10. Neuromuscular considerations in managing individuals with CNS damage 11. Developing a rehabilitation programme 12. Motor abilities, assessment to challenge: re-abilitation 13. Optimising proprioceptive recovery 14. Neuromuscular rehabilitation: summary
"Harmonic Technique is a practical text for manual therapy practitioners which describes the fundamentals of this important technique and explains how it may be used in practice. The biomechanical and physiological bases of the techniques are also presented. The book is illustrated with over 50 photographs which provide a detailed step-by-step guide to the implementation of technique."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

"This is a highly enjoyable and well presented book that I recommend for any clinician from student to experienced practitioner. It is suitable for all physiotherapists, manual therapists, sports physiotherapists/therapists, strength and conditioning coaches, sports scientists, athletes and patients who would like to understand, recover and improve their range and ease of movement." Jimmy Reynolds, Head of Sports Medicine - Academy, Ipswich Town Football Club, Oct 14 Helps transform thinking about the therapeutic value of stretching and how it is best applied in the clinical setting Examines the difference between therapeutic and recreational stretching Focuses on the use of stretching in conditions where individuals experience a loss in range of movement (ROM) Explores what makes stretching effective, identifying behaviour as a main driving force for adaptive changes Discusses the experience of pain, sensitization and pain tolerance in relation to stretching and ROM recovery Contains over 150 photographs and 45 minutes of video describing this new revolutionary approach Applicable to a variety of perspectives including osteopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, sports and personal trainers Ideal for experienced practitioners as well as those taking undergraduate and postgraduate courses
"The text aims to assist practitioners and students of manual therapy to develop a deeper understanding of their patients' processes and how they may be affected by different MT techniques. It aims to help MT practitioners deliver a more effective and safer treatment and to be able to treat a broader range of conditions."--BOOK JACKET.
Now in its third edition, this trusted clinical guide enables both the busy practitioner and student to review or to learn about a range of pathologies, conditions, examinations, diagnostic procedures, and interventions that can be effectively used in the physical rehabilitation of older people. It presents a broad overview of age-related physiological changes as well as specific professional discipline perspectives. Organized into eleven distinct and interrelated units, the first unit begins with key anatomical and physiological considerations seen with aging which have significant impact on the older person. The second and third units go on to review important aging-related conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular/neurological systems respectively. Neoplasms commonly encountered in older people are the focus of the fourth unit; while aging-related conditions of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, integumentary and sensory systems are presented in units five through seven. Unit eight highlights a range of specific clinical problems and conditions commonly encountered with older patients. Critically, all of these units emphasize important examination and diagnostic procedures needed for a thorough evaluation and stress interventions that can be of significant benefit to the older patient. The ninth unit presents select physical therapeutic interventions that are especially important in managing rehabilitative care. Key societal issues related to aging are discussed in the tenth unit. Finally, the concluding eleventh unit focuses on the successful rehabilitation team that includes both professional and non-professional caregiver members. A trusted guide to the conditions and problems faced when evaluating and treating geriatric patients Extensive coverage over 84 chapters, each written by an expert in the field Includes imaging, vision and the aging ear Cross-referenced - providing the complexity and inter-relatedness of co-morbidities common to aging patients Collaborative international perspective Chapters on the aging spine; frailty; safe pilates for bone health; health care for older people Additional renowned editor - Ronald W. Scott Revised title to reflect the comprehensive scope of content covered (previously entitled Geriatric Rehabilitation Manual)
This book examines the physiological effect of therapeutic manipulation and touch on the human body. It presents the physiological, neurophysiological, and psychological basis of manual techniques, giving the therapist the background and theory needed to support practice, and helping therapists to provide safer and more effective treatment. An innovative text that draws together material from many sources Provides manual therapists with the theoretic ammunition to explain why and how their techniques work Highly illustrated to clarify the text and aid understanding Uniquely, demonstrates the clinical relevance of the physiological research presented A highly accessible text for students and practitioners
A comprehensive resource for focusing on returning injured athletes to their optimal performance! This book discusses exercise principles; muscle fatigue, muscle damage, and overtraining concepts; pathophysiology of overuse injuries; core evaluation in sports-specific testing; physiological basis of exercise specific to sport; and special considerations for the athlete. Secial features such as evidence-based clinical application boxes provide the reader with a solid body of research upon which to base their practice. Aligned to the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice to help learn how to work with athletes' injuries and help them make a physical comeback while following best practices. Incorporation of muscle physiology demonstrates it as the basis for athlete's exercise prescription. Coverage of pathophysiology of overuse injuries illustrates the damage to the musculoskeletal system. Inclusion of treatment and training approaches for athletic rehabilitation shows how to restore the musculoskeletal system back to full flexibility, strength, power, and endurance. Evidence-based clinical application boxes found throughout the book cite key studies and provide real-world application to a clinical setting. Extensive photographs show hands-on demonstrations of important rehabilitation techniques, helping the cinician to accurately apply them during treatment.
Physical therapy services may be provided alongside or in conjunction with other medical services. They are performed by physical therapists (known as physiotherapists in many countries) with the help of other medical professionals. This book consists of 12 chapters written by several professionals from different parts of the world. The book covers different subjects, such as the effects of physical therapy, motor imagery, neuroscience-based rehabilitation for neurological patients, and applications of robotics for stroke and cerebral palsy. We hope that this book will open up new directions for physical therapists in the field of neurological physical therapy.
