Publisher Comments:

Here's an innovative and practical approach to eliminating chronic muscle pain, written by a popular occupational therapist with thirty years of experience freeing people from the discomfort of tendonitis, lower back pain, and neck and shoulder tension. These types of chronic pain can be caused by a number of factors, including old injuries, habitual movement patterns, problems with body alignment, psychological causes, and inability to sense your own body movements accurately. Muscular Retraining for Pain-Free Living clearly and concisely explains the causes of persistent muscle pain and offers a therapeutic exercise program to address these problems and end pain.

This book explains the basic principles behind Williamson Muscular Retraining, a pain-relief discipline, in a way that is practical and easy to understand. The problems of poor posture, muscle tension, and stress-caused pain are corrected by seeing them through the lens of kinesthetic awareness. Normal kinesthetic awareness is lacking in much of the population and typically overlooked by health care practitioners. Muscular Retraining for Pain-Free Living presents case examples of how people have used kinesthetic awareness and exercises to change how they think of their bodies and to end pain.

Synopsis:

Chronic pain such as tendonitis, most types of lower back pain, and neck and shoulder tension, can be caused by a number of different factors: old injuries; habitual movement patterns; problems with body alignment; psychological causes; and lack of kinesthetic awareness. Muscular Retraining for Pain-Free Living clearly and concisely explains the causes of persistent muscle pain and offers a therapeutic exercise program to address these problems and end pain.In his clinical practice, Williamson has found that a lack of kinesthetic awareness, or the ability to sense your own body movements accurately, is the most important--and most overlooked--cause of persistent pain. In this book Williamson offers easy-to-follow exercises to increase body awareness, retrain muscle groups, and eliminate pain once and for all.
