Prepare your massage therapy students to meet the needs of clients who require clinical orthopedic work with Manual Therapy for the Low Back and Pelvis: A Clinical Orthopedic Approach with Dr. Joe Muscolino.
This unique book clearly shows the reader how Soft Tissue Release can be used to treat common injuries and conditions such as shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, and iliotibial band friction syndrome. Soft tissue release also aids post-surgical recovery and is used in the treatment of highly trained athletes, dancers, and musicians who wish to tackle those small but key tissue areas needed to maintain and improve their performance.
Written by an expert on alternative bodywork, this book presents techniques for manipulating the soft tissues of the back in a safe, simple manner. The method avoids the high velocity, low amplitude thrusting techniques employed by chiropractors. Instead, it utilizes the intuitive sense of somatic bodyworkers combined with the proven theory and technique of Rolfing to provide safe and effective treatment.
