This hands-on therapy manual for the treatment of tendon and ligament injuries, which frequently are sports-related, includes guidelines for athletes, trainers, and coaches for prevention, recovery, return to sports after injury, and exercise strategy. Weintraub, an osteopathic therapist in the San Francisco area, bases his nonsurgical model on basic principles of structural health care, including the importance of precise anatomical focus, capacity to work with subtle changes of structure, and the combination of detailed, specific treatment of the small fibers and tissues of the local tendon injury area with an overall approach to improving larger body patterns and tensions.
