Harold Fox, Mike Wells

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 1774

The fifth edition of a world-famous text provides encyclopedic coverage of both obstetrical and gynaecological pathology. It describes the basic mechanisms of diseases, their pathological and clinical features and their histological and cytological appearance. Each chapter is written by a leading international expert and provides the reader with a complete and authoritative review of a particular topic. The text includes pathological descriptions of often neglected areas such as vulvar, vaginal and tubal disease and places special emphasis on the immunopathological aspects of gynaecological and obstetrical disorders. In keeping with the previous edition the text supplies extensive coverage of obstetrical pathology with in-depth chapters on the pathology of the placenta, the pregnant uterus, the membranes and the umbilical cord. This edition features increased coverage of fine needle aspiration cytology as well as an increased emphasis on differential diagnosis and the material on diagnostic techniques has been rewritten to ensure that only those that are routinely used in daily practice are covered.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Rehabilitation

Eric Leskowitz

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 496

"Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Rehabilitation" is a comprehensive review of currently available scientific information relating to complementary and alternative therapies and rehabilitation. It outlines the current state of knowledge in the area of CAM as it relates to rehabilitation. Rehabilitation involves the practice of a multidimensional form of medicine that encompasses all levels of the human being as patient-body, mind, and spirit. The theory behind rehabilitation is to utilize several forms of therapies in order to heal the body. This integration of therapies is one of the core beliefs of CAM and is why CAM meshes so naturally with rehabilitation. Representative therapies from each of the following four main categories comprise the first four sections of the book: mind/body therapies (i.e., meditation, biofeedback), body-oriented therapies (i.e., chiropractic, yoga), energy-based therapies (i.e., acupuncture, energy healing), and the emergent approaches (i.e., shamanic healing, teamwork and group dynamics). The emphasis is on evidence-based medicine, with enough research cited to whet the reader's appetite for further study. While history and theory of these CAM approaches are touched upon, the chapters are anchored in clinical examples so that the reader can apply the information to his or her practice. The second section of the book deals with some of the most widely encountered clinical conditions in rehabilitation, including cardiac and dementia. Emphasis here is on clinical practice, with a solid research base. The Research Springboards section outlines future opportunities in which CAM can be integrated with rehabilitation, such as phantom limb pain and therapeutic touch. And the last section, The Patient's Perspective, tells the stories of a manual laborer, a freelance professional, and a spiritual teacher who have all been exposed to various holistic practices during their rehabilitation processes. Training resources at the end of each chapter give the reader the opportunity to take the next step in pursuing personal exposure to a modality or approach within his or her own field of medicine.

The Malalignment Syndrome

Implications for Medicine and Sport

Wolf Schamberger

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 456

"The Malalignment Syndrome" describes a newly recognised syndrome that commonly occurs in patients seen by physicians, chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and veterinarians. Although the symptoms are familiar to those working in the field they are often treated independently and their collective cause goes unrecognised. In this book, the author presents the evidence for looking at the group of symptoms involved and treating them as a single syndrome with a single cause - biomechanical malignment. The book has a special emphasis on athletes and participants in sport at all levels. Recognition of the malalignment syndrome by sports trainers, physiotherapists and others working with athletes can help them implement appropriate treatment and training to correct the malalignment and actually prevent the initial occurrence of symptoms. Emphasis is on the participation of the patient/athlete in the day-to day treatment process to achieve long-term results.
