Colonna vertebrale

Gli esercizi per il dolore cervicale. Metodo completo per l'autoguarigione

Erio De Col

editore: Edizioni Mediterranee

pagine: 310

Recenti statistiche hanno appurato che 7 persone su 10 vengono colpite dal dolore cervicale. La grande diffusione di questa sindrome ha spinto la classe medica a ricercare rimedi che possano combatterla, e tutti si sono trovati concordi nell'affermare che la ginnastica è una delle terapie più valide per la soluzione di tale sindrome e la più efficace per la sua prevenzione. Il problema è che non c'è quasi mai l'indicazione di quale ginnastica sia necessario fare e questa genericità lascia aperta la porta alle proposte più diverse e bizzarre, disorientando gli addetti ai lavori e ovviamente, ancor di più, le persone non competenti che ne dovrebbero usufruire. Questo manuale illustrato propone quindi un programma di esercizi strutturato in modo da applicare, sul tratto cervicale, delle forze in modo graduale e progressivo, e guidare le persone a una maggiore comprensione della propria sintomatologia.

Movement Stability and Lumbopelvic Pain

Integration of Research and Therapy

Andry Vleeming, Rob Stoeckart
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 672

The human lumbopelvic area has become the focus of a considerable amount of new and intriguing research relevant to effective diagnosis and treatment of low back pain. Back function has recently been studied from a broader perspective, including the analysis of the coupled function in spine, pelvis and legs. These approaches lead to new questions about dynamic stability and motor control in general, and specifically about the spine and pelvis. These new insights obviously imply new approaches in the prevention and treatment of low back pain and pelvic pain. Unique to this book is its in-depth coverage of this subject area by a team of international contributors who represent the broad range of professionals involved in clinical research and therapy. These experts cover a vast area of lumbopelvic experience, from effective treatment and rehabilitation to epidemiology, anatomy, biomechanics, pain and motor control, surgery and manual therapy.

Red Flags

A Guide to Identifying Serious Pathology of the Spine

James Selfe, Sue Greenhalgh

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 228

Serious pathology accounts for only 1 per cent of back pain in the general population, however, if you work within musculoskeletal medicine, at some stage, you will see a patient with serious pathology. "Red Flags" is the essential guide to correctly identifying and acting on warning signs when a therapist becomes suspicious of serious pathology in a patient presenting with back pain. This handy pocketbook offers practical strategies for developing clinical reasoning so that therapists are able to distinguish between Red Flags and Red Herrings along the patient journey, and have greater confidence in their diagnosis. Drawing on their years of experience and personal case studies, Greenhalgh and Selfe, present a truly innovative guide. They introduce: a hierarchy of Red Flags; an 'Index of Suspicion'; thoughts on Red Herrings; a model of 3D thinking; and, the consideration of conditional probabilities. Log-on to the associated website to gain free access to a downloadable wall chart of the Red Flag Hierarchy and the authors' Physiotherapy journal articles.

Pilates per il mal di schiena

Anna Selby

editore: Corbaccio

pagine: 252

Il mal di schiena ha assunto una diffusione epidemica. Esso rappresenta una delle cause più frequenti di assenze dal lavoro, nonché di visite mediche. Anna Selby ha studiato un programma di esercizi specifici per eliminare i dolori di schiena e rimettere in forma attraverso il metodo Pilates. Cominciando con una serie di movimenti "dolci" per mobilizzare il corpo e la colonna doloranti, gradualmente arriva a esercizi più complessi e faticosi che rafforzano la schiena e fortificano i muscoli per evitare problemi futuri. Si tratta di esercizi che si possono eseguire a casa propria, senza attrezzi particolari, a un ritmo lento, rilassante, che aiuta a scaricare le tensioni di tutto il corpo, ma in particolare quelle a carico della schiena, delle spalle e del collo. Il metodo Pilates riequilibra la postura, mirando a un solido, anche se rilassato, allineamento della colonna vertebrale, che una volta appreso si può mantenere non solo durante gli esercizi ma nel corso dell'intera giornata. Attraverso questo libro puoi imparare: a muoverti in modo corretto dopo un attacco di mal di schiena a rinforzare il corpo in modo da riprendere le attività quotidiane a proteggere la schiena da ulteriori danni a migliorare la flessibilità e la postura.
