9780443073519: Maintaining Body Balance, Flexibility & Stability: A Practical Guide to the Prevention & Treatment of Musculoskeletal Pain & Dysfunction, 1e

With a focus on helping clients participate in the self-management of their own treatment, this collection of effective and safe techniques and exercises provides practical information on relaxing muscles in spasm and easing associated muscular pain. Reader-friendly and accessible, it provides numerous exercises that can be used to treat existing conditions or to prevent further injury. While the exercises can be used in a management program under the direction of any therapist involved in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, they are also ideal for home use ― so patients can do them without special equipment or the assistance of others.

  • Safe and effective exercise techniques help patients relieve tense muscles and ease related pain.
  • Numerous, colorful illustrations are included throughout the text to provide a better understanding of techniques.
  • Clear and easy-to-follow explanations of each technique improve readability and comprehension.
  • Expert guidance helps readers select the appropriate exercise for each situation.
  • Content helps patients remember what the therapist wants them to do between one consultation and the next.
  • The role of the patient in maintaining his or her own fitness is emphasized to ensure successful treatment outcomes.
  • All of the exercises can be done at home ― without special equipment or hands-on involvement of the practitioner.
  • Plastic cards inside the back cover provide exercises and instructions for patients to use at home.
