This step-by-step guide for assessing the pelvis and sacroiliac joint by respected bodywork specialist John Gibbons explores all aspects of this crucial area of the body and how it links within the kinetic chain system. Gibbons--a registered sports osteopath who specializes in the treatment and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries—provides detailed information about how to recognize pain and dysfunctional patterns that arise from the pelvic girdle along with techniques to identify and correct a number of impaired patterns as well as functional exercises that promote recovery. Fully illustrated with 350 color photos, this book will give practitioners, students, and anyone who wants to understand pelvic pain and what they can do about it a wealth of practical information. Gibbons addresses key issues such as the walking/gait cycle and its relationship to the pelvis; leg length discrepancy and its relationship to the kinetic chain and the pelvis; the laws of spinal mechanics, the relationship of the hip joint, gluteal muscles, and lumbar spine to the pelvis; and sacroiliac joint screening. He discusses role of the Glutes, Psoas, Rectus femoris and other muscles and what happens to the position of the pelvis if these soft tissues become shortened. Detailed exercises and techniques are carefully illustrated with photographs that explain each movement, and an appendix for quick reference adds to the usefulness of the text.

Sie leiden unter Rückenschmerzen, die bis hinunter in die Beine ausstrahlen? Dann sind Sie nicht allein: Fast jeder Dritte in Deutschland ist davon betroffen. Klassischerweise gehen Ärzte automatisch von einem Bandscheibenvorfall aus. Aber nicht immer sind die Bandschreiben der Auslöser. In vielen Fällen handelt es sich um eine Entzündung des Piriformis-Muskels, der auf den Ischiasnerv drückt und dadurch die Beschwerden auslöst. Der Vorteil: Wenn das Piriformis-Syndrom erkannt wurde, lässt es sich sehr viel gezielter und erfolgreicher behandeln als ein Bandscheibenvorfall. Schon einfache Dehnungsübungen zeigen erstaunliche Wirkung. Der Sportredakteur Nicolai Napolski, der aus eigener Erfahrung weiß, wie schmerzhaft das Piriformis-Syndrom ist, hat zusammen mit der Sporttherapeutin und Personal Trainerin Katharina Brinkmann den ersten Ratgeber geschrieben, der sich mit dieser Erkrankung dezidiert auseinandersetzt. Die Autoren haben aber nicht nur die wichtigsten Informationen zu Hintergrund und Entstehung zusammengetragen, sondern auch ein eigens auf das Piriformis-Syndrom zugeschnittenes Übungskonzept entwickelt, das einfache und effektive Techniken vorstellt, mit deren Hilfe Sie den verkürzten Muskel dehnen, den Beckengürtel stärken und Haltungsschäden korrigieren können. Im Experteninterview mit dem Therapeuten für Osteopathie und Rückenspezialisten Dr. Torsten Pfitzer erfahren Sie außerdem, wie Sie der Erkrankung vorbeugen können, damit die Schmerzen erst gar nicht entstehen. Lernen Sie, wie Sie das Piriformis-Syndrom selbst behandeln können, sodass ihr Schmerz bald der Vergangenheit angehört.

This refreshing fourth edition of the established evidence-based textbook by Elaine Atkins, Jill Kerr and Emily Goodlad continues to uphold the Cyriax approach to clinical reasoning, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Renamed A Practical Approach to Musculoskeletal Medicine, to reflect globally understood terminology, it focuses on the principles and practice of musculoskeletal medicine, providing practical guidance and tips for clinical practice based on extensive clinical experience and evidence. The book is split into three sections. Section 1 presents the theory underpinning musculoskeletal medicine. The histology and behaviour of the soft tissues follow, with a review of the healing process, to enhance understanding of the effects of injury on the soft tissues. The first section ends with the principles of treatment as applied in musculoskeletal medicine and discusses the techniques of mobilization and injection, aims and application, and indications for use. Section 2 adopts a regional approach. Anatomy is presented, including useful tips on surface marking to locate commonly injured anatomical structures. Assessment, lesions and treatment techniques are discussed for each region as appropriate for the stage in the healing process. Section 3 provides resources to support the recording of assessment and to ensure safety, especially whilst learning the musculoskeletal medicine approach. A Practical Approach to Musculoskeletal Medicine comprehensively and critically discusses current literature. It is a complete reference source for students and postgraduate medical practitioners, physiotherapists, osteopaths and other allied health professionals, including occupational therapists and podiatrists. It is essential reading. Review questions and case scenarios at the end of each chapter to revise key principles of the approach Updates on tendinopathy management (including optimal loading), cervical arterial dysfunction, spinal clinical models and manipulation Over 250 new illustrations and photographs Evolve Resources containing: New taster video clips demonstrating assessment and treatment techniques Self-assessment section Image bank Log on to

A textbook that covers Physical concepts at a basic level for manual therapists specifically . Clinicians in general and manual therapists in particular have a need tounderstand certain, specific aspects of physics to an advanced level.However, many lack prior education in this area, with chemistry and biology 'A' levels being emphasized in terms of entrance requirements. Most textbooks aimed at this field concentrate exclusively on the physics underpinning biomechanics, but the level at which these books are pitched is often too high to allow understanding by students who have an inadequate background in the subject. This book acts, in part, as a primer to address this deficit. Students are also required to understand the basic physics underpinning physiology, biochemistry, radiography and therapeutics. This textbook will be a guide to these specialist areas of knowledge. This text will cover biophysics as a core subject to guide the potential clinician from total ignorance to complete mastery in the areas of physics pertinent to manual medicine and its related disciplines.

Lack of appreciation and knowledge of the malalignment syndrome often leads to a failure to notice the possible aetiological or predisposing factors contributing to many musculoskeletal problems. Recognition of the syndrome by physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths, podiatrists, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, sports trainers and others dealing with patients and athletes (including equine) can help them implement appropriate treatment and training to correct the malalignment and actually prevent the initial occurrence of symptoms. Now in its second edition, The Malalignment Syndrome has established itself as a trusty one-stop reference providing a detailed description of this syndrome and how it can be identified and treated. It concentrates on the trunk, pelvis, spine, sacroiliac joint and legs, incorporating anatomy, biomechanics, stability issues, possible causes, examination and diagnostic techniques as well as a comprehensive treatment approach. Emphasis is also placed on the participation of the patient/athlete in the day-to day treatment process to achieve long-term results. Evidence-based practical advice and guidance Multidisciplinary in approach Highly illustrated with photographs, diagrams and anatomical models Recognizes the importance of prevention as well as treatment Summary and case boxes Over 100 new illustrations Additional examination techniques to facilitate diagnosis Extensively rewritten for easier reading Contributions by David Lane (Chapter 6: Horses, Saddles and Riders), Sarah Stevens and Karina Steinberg (Chapter 8: Treatment: The Manual Therapy Modes) Focuses on diagnosis/treatment of malalignment-related pelvic, leg and back pain
