Connective Tissue Massage: Bindegewebsmassage According to Dicke

Elke Harms, R. Schiffter

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 224

In 1929 Germany, physiotherapist Elisabeth Dicke suffered from poor circulation in her right leg, acute back pain, and a host of other ailments. With no medical options offered beyond amputation of the leg, she turned to her own training for help. She began to massage the skin and subcutaneous fascia of the sacral bone and pelvic crest with pulling strokes. After several applications, she experienced less back pain, increased circulation to the leg, and within three months, disappearance of all symptoms. This was the beginning of Dickes systematic, scientifically based treatment method of connective tissue massage (or Bindegewebsmassage), now in wide use throughout the world. In this book, practitioners will get the first detailed, how-to description of connective tissue massage (CTM) {in the English language} including the principles, knowledge, and skills to implement it. Special Features * Begins with the origin and practical benefits of CTM, including its neuroanatomical and neurophysiological basis* Explores the relationship between the sensory, motor, and autonomic nervous systems and the complex reflex mechanisms that are activated by CTM therapy* Describes and illustrates specific stroking techniques that trigger the appropriate neural reflexes in every body segment* Shows how to make a diagnostic assessment based on skin, connective tissue, and muscle zones* Covers the full range of orthopedic, neurological, internal medicine, and gynecologic disorders that can be effectively treated with CTM Complete with treatment plans, indications and contraindications, and modern medical guidelines, this book is essential for all physical and massage therapists and osteopaths who want to successfully integrate CTM into their practices. It is also a fascinating reference for physicians and other medical professionals who are interested in learning more about this important manual technique.

Metodo Mézières «rivoluzione in fisioterapia». Storia, teoria e pratica dell'ideatrice della rieducazione posturale

Michaël Nisand

editore: Fisiocorsi

pagine: 288

Françoise Mézières propone non una variante di ciò che si faceva ma un vero e proprio sistema di pensiero che genererà nuove tecniche terapeutiche, tanto che c'è chi, nella storia della fisioterapia, non esita a considerare un "pre" e un "post" Mézières. Non si tratta di un'evoluzione, ma di un'autentica rivoluzione. Françoise Mézières definisce un concetto del tutto nuovo, quello di catena muscolare. Il metodo mira a restaurare la morfologia normale e, per farlo, propone come mezzo terapeutico un insieme di posture correttive di allungamento delle catene muscolari.
