Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Help your students develop the advanced skills needed to treat the lower back and pelvis!

 

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is pleased to introduce Manual Therapy for the Low Back and Pelvis: A Clinical Orthopedic Approach, an exciting new addition to our In Touch series. Relying on his vast experience as a chiropractor, manual therapist, and educator, author Joe Muscolino creates a comprehensive guide to lower back and pelvis treatment that empowers manual therapists from multiple health professions to confidently and effectively manage pain and conditions in this region. Part One of the book begins with an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the lower back and pelvis, common pathologic conditions, and assessment.  Part Two sets forth a variety of tested and proven treatment techniques. Part Three offers self-care advice for both the client and the manual therapist.

 

The treatment routines set forth in the text combine images with detailed explanations to guide students through effective clinical orthopedic manual therapy techniques for the functional muscle groups and joints of the lower back and pelvis.  Accompanying video clips show these techniques in action.  Caution boxes throughout the text draw attention to contraindications and precautions that students need to be aware of before performing manual therapy on the lower back and pelvis.

 

Whether as a student expanding his or her learning to include advanced treatment options, or as a practicing therapist seeking to hone and enhance a seasoned skill set, this book will help readers prepare to meet the needs of their clients and become a more marketable, in-demand, and valuable therapist by performing clinical orthopedic work. Likewise, instructors will find additional tools and resources to facilitate the teaching and learning of this crucial topic.
