Stretching to relieve musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.
Covering all forms of stretches for able-bodied, injured and selected special populations, "Therapeutic Stretching" is a comprehensive resource for both practitioners and students of massage therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation and personal training. "Therapeutic Stretching" offers both passive and active rehabilitative stretches for musculoskeletal conditions and injuries of the foot and ankle, knee and leg, hip and thigh, upper limb, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers, and back and neck.
Featuring more than 230 colour photographs, "Therapeutic Stretching" provides excellent visual instruction on client positioning and the most effective handholds for the application of passive stretches to various joints and soft tissues. "Therapeutic Stretching" is part of the "Hands-On Guides for Therapists Series" providing tools of assessment and treatment particularly for massage therapists, but may also prove useful to osteopaths and fitness instructors.
