This practical book offers an extensive examination of how manual therapy (M.T.) techniques work, and how to match the most suitable techniques to different conditions. Drawing on evidence-based research, it explores the physiological, neurological and psychophysiological responses of the human body to M.T. techniques. In doing so, it helps M.T. practitioners deliver a more effective and safer treatment for a broader range of conditions. Comprehensive overview helps provide an understanding of how and why M.T. techniques work. Content is written in jargon-free, easy-to-read style, with most terms explained. Text is enhanced by over 120 diagrams, photographs and tables. Manual pain relief is extensively discussed throughout the book. Section 1 examines the direct effects of manual therapy on connective tissue and muscle physiology, examining how M.T. can help assist repair and adaptation processes in these tissues. Section 2 examines the effect of M.T. on the neuromuscular system, identifying conditions where neuromuscular dysfunctions can be treated by M.T. . Section 3 examines the psychological, emotional and behavioral impacts of M.T., in addition to the psychophysiological affects of M.T., including psychomotor, neuroendocrine, and autonomic responses. More than 1,000 references relevant to manual therapy are included, making this an essential source book for students and researchers of M.T. . Content is completely rewritten, extensively updated and expanded, adding new research material, novel clinical approaches, and demonstrations of new techniques and assessments. Pain coverage is expanded. More information is included on the responses of muscle to mechanical stimuli when applying M.T. techniques.
