Biomechanics of the Nervous System: Breig Revisited

9780646479507: Biomechanics of the Nervous System: Breig Revisited

If you are into manual therapy and neural tissue and want to see how the nervous system moves, this book of Breig's groundbreaking work is for you. Dr. Alf Breig was the Leonardo da Vinci of biomechanics of the nervous system. He made the biggest and most significant contribution ever to our understanding of how the nervous system functions mechanically. He did this through his photographic documentations of fresh cadavers, patient investigations and photelastic modelling of force behaviour, to name just a few of his techniques. He originated the concept of adverse mechanical tension in the nervous system, from which came new concepts in manual and musculoskeletal medicine. These included adverse neural tension and neural mobilisation which ultimately gave way to clinical neurodynamics. Many clinicians in the area of musculoskeltal medicine have heard of Breig, although, not many have actually seen his work. The contents of this book include: Work from Dr. Alf breig's first two books "Biomechanics of the Central Nervous System (1960) and "Adverse Mechanical Tension in the Nervous System (1978)" Photoelastic models of stress behaviour in n the human nervous system Cranial nerve and nerve root movment Spinal cord biomechanics with spinal movements Movement of the meningeal tissues and intraneural blood vessel behaviour Cauda equina biomechanics Sliding and tension behaviour of the neural tissues Pressure biofeedback analysis of lumbopelvic movement with neurobiodynamic testing. In order to bring Breig's work back to life, NDS Neurodynamic Solutions and the Orthopadeic Manual Therapy Division of the Swedish Physiotherapists' Association proudly present his classic work between the 1950s and 1970s in pictorial and graphic detail for the first time since this work was released over 40 years ago.
