9780091809560: Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy

This is the definitive reference book on massage as a remedial therapy for sports training and sports injuries. It covers all practical and theroretical aspects of the subject, ranging from the basics through to the treatment of soft tissue injuries; and it gives guidance on how to work in a support role with medical practitioners treating more serious injury. It offers innovative new ideas like working posture and the psychology of injury treatment. This book goes beyond the conventional idea that massage is just a pleasant luxury, and shows it as a vital component in an athlete's training. The therapy offers effective pain relief for muscular problems, with practical advice on how to achieve permanant solutions to improve performance in sport.

From the Publisher:

The definitive practitioner's reference book on sports massage.

From the Back Cover:

This is the definitive reference book on massage which will prove invaluable to all students and practitioners of physical therapies. Fully illustrated with photographs and drawings, it covers all the practical and theoretical aspects of the subject, ranging from the basics through to the treatment of soft tissue injury. Fundamental principles - such as a good working posture and the quality of 'feel' - are included to help the therapist achieve the best possible result with minimal effort and stress. A fully illustrated reference section examines individual muscles, explaining particular characteristics of injury and treatment. The book also includes soft tissue manipulation techniques which can relax, stretch or strengthen muscles; as well as remedial exercises which can be done by the patient to further aid recovery or enhance sports performance.
