This volume presents the theories, validation and techniques of manual treatment for both chronic and acute neuromuscular pain and somatic dysfunction. The book takes a regional approach to treatment, providing a structural review of each area including ligaments and functional anatomy. It then examines each muscle and joint for a particular region, and includes step-by-step protocols for each muscle to be treated, giving particular reference to the treatment of trigger points. This text ensures the safe and effective application of soft tissue techniques and provides an invaluable source of reference to all manual therapy students and practitioners.
