Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 272

Positional Release Techniques continues to be the go-to resource for those who want to easily learn and confidently use this manual approach to safely manage pain and dysfunction in humans (and animals). As well as a structural revision, the fourth edition now includes new illustrations and chapters with videos and an image bank on a companion website to reinforce knowledge. At its core, the book explores the principles and modalities of the different forms of positional release techniques and their application which range from the original strain/counterstrain method to various applications in physical therapy, such as McKenzie's exercise protocols and kinesio-taping methods that 'unload' tissues. These methods are traced from their historical roots up to their current practice with a showcase of emerging research and evidence. In addition to a series of problem-solving clinical descriptions supported by photos of assessment and treatment methods, learning is further boosted by practical exercises which examine PRT methodology and the mechanics of their use.

Fibromyalgia Syndrome

A Practitioners Guide to Treatment

Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 440

In "Fibromyalgia Syndrome" - a practitioner's guide to treatment - Leon Chaitow and his contributors provide a comprehensive overview of this epidemiologically significant condition and describe the most effective multidisciplinary approaches to treatment. Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) was recognised as a syndrome by the WHO in 1990. Sufferers from this complex syndrome may experience a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from headaches and fatigue to widespread muscular pain or irritable bowel syndrome. FMS is the second commonest condition encountered in clinics for the treatment of chronic pain. Because of its many presenting symptoms, different clinicians and therapists become involved in the treatment and management of FMS patients. Fibromyalgia Syndrome - a practitioner's guide to treatment - aims to help clinicians and therapists involved in the treatment and management of FMS to better understand the syndrome, and to plan appropriate treatment and management.

Clinical Applications of Neuromuscular Techniques

Judith Delany, Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 496

This long awaited text is the first of two volumes which presents the theories, validation and techniques of manual treatment for both chronic and acute neuromuscular pain and somatic dysfunction. Unlike many other texts, the theory and practice are described within the context of the normal anatomy and physiology of the related structures. The book takes a regional approach to treatment, giving a structural review of each area, including ligaments and functional anatomy. It then examines each muscle and joint in that region, giving step-by-step protocols for each muscle to be treated, using a variety of neuromuscularapproaches. Particular reference is made to the treatment of trigger points. Each joint and muscle has the same sequence of headings making it easy for the reader to dip into what they need to review. Numerous two colour illustrations also appear throughout, making the anatomy and techniques described easier to follow. The two authors have drawn together and integrated information that currently has to be accessed from several sources. The result is a text which will do much to ensure the safe and effective application of soft tissue techniques and which will provide an invaluable source of reference to all manual therapy students and practitioners.

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Breathing Pattern Disorders

Christopher Gilbert, Dinah Bradley
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 288

Functional breathing pattern disorders (BPD - the extreme of which is hyperventilation) disturb the biochemistry of the body, often leading to respiratory alkalosis. They are extremely common, mainly affecting women and frequently go unrecognized by clinicians. Research shows that BPDs can be responsible for causing, or helping to maintain, a vast range of symptoms including muscular pain (particularly involving the thorax and neck area), inefficient motor control, reduced core stability, tremors, and tetany, feelings of anxiety, easy fatiguability, sleep disturbances, dysphagia, epigastric pain, IBS, parasthesia, palpitations, dizziness, disturbed vision, and a variety of circulatory symptoms resulting from smooth muscle constriction. BPDs are easily tested for and - with patient cooperation - are commonly correctable via a combination of manual therapy and breathing rehabilitation strategies.

Palpation and Assessment Skills

Assessment Through Touch

Leon Chaitow

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 344

"Palpation and Assessment Skills" has been designed and developed to help the student and practitioner to understand and acquire the palpatory skills that are the foundation of all effective manual therapy assessments and treatments. Subtlety and sensitivity of touch, and the accurate interpretation of palpation findings and tests, are essential aspects of all manual therapy professions. While it is difficult to learn these from written descriptions or static illustrations alone, by combining a workbook approach with the use of video demonstrations and audio explanations on a DVD, "Palpation and Assessment Skills" provides the student and developing practitioner with a portable workshop, that they can access at any time.
