This is a practical guide to the examination and assessment of the neuromusculoskeletal system which aims to enable the therapist to identify a client's problem before deciding on a treatment. Because it focuses on these preliminary diagnostic processes it is a complementary text supporting books on the various treatment techniques themselves (such as the available books by Leon Chaitow, Gregory Grieve, etc). It brings together as one process the examination and assessment of all the structures involved: joint, nerve and muscle tissue, and is designed for use by anyone requiring to identify and assess clinical problems in this area - both student and clinician. It is highly illustrated with clear, step-by-step sequences of illustrations and text that are logical and easy to follow. The co-author Ann Moore is also co-author of The Clinical Educator - Role Development, and co-editor of the journal Manual Therapy. She is probably the best known person in the manual therapy field in the UK and beyond.

Anatomy and Human Movement

Anatomy and Human Movement: Structure and Function, Second Edition, is concerned with the musculoskeletal system and its application to human movement. The design of this new edition builds on the success of the first edition. There has been some reorganization of the text and illustrations for better clarity, as well as new sections on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and urogenital systems, and on the eye and ear. Apart from introductory sections (terminology; components of the musculoskeletal system; embryology; and skin, its appendages and special senses), the book has three sections dealing with the musculoskeletal system: the upper limb, the lower limb, and the head, neck and trunk. In addition there is a fourth section on the nervous system. Each musculoskeletal section is presented in a similar way beginning with a study of the bones, to provide the basic framework of the section. This is followed by a description of the muscles, which are considered in functional groups in an attempt to explain how movement is produced. Finally, the joints are described and discussed, building on the knowledge gained from a consideration of the bones and muscles: this last part of each section also serves to bring together the preceding parts. This book was written for the student of anatomy who wishes to use this knowledge functionally and desires an understanding of the mechanisms enabling movement to take place.

Pediatrics in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

Publisher: Elsevier

ISBN: 0444635971

Category: Medical

View: 4697

Pediatrics in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases, Second Edition, provides a good starting point for physicians and scientists new to the field and for anyone looking for the most up-to-date summary of a particular disease. While many questions are answered, many more are raised for which we do not yet have the answers. The book provides inspiration to readers conducting their own research and helps to answer their questions. The care of children with systemic autoimmune diseases is moving forward at a rapid pace. The systemic autoimmune diseases of childhood have always represented a special problem for the physicians and scientists who care for the affected children and study their diseases. Some conditions, such as Kawasaki disease, are virtually unique to childhood, while systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, and juvenile onset spondyloarthropathies may be thought of as the early onset of the same disease which is seen in adults. The autoinflammatory disorders appear to be of clear genetic origin, accounting for their frequent discovery in childhood. For many other conditions, such as juvenile dermatomyositis, the relationship between the conditions seen in children and that seen in adults is less certain. This book explores these phenomena, giving users a foundation on which to understand certain diseases. Includes completely updated chapters and five new chapters Explains the differences in systemic autoimmune diseases seen in children vs. those seen in adults Covers the latest advances in pathogenesis and clinical management of common conditions seen in pediatric rheumatology practices, benefiting both pediatric and adult rheumatologists, as well as physicians from other specialties Brings the reader up-to-date and allows easy access to individual topics in one place Provides the latest information available in a format that would give the clinician both a clear understanding of what has been done in the past and a scientific basis for deciding what to do for the next afflicted child in their care

Vertebral Manipulation: Fourth Edition presents a comprehensive examination of the methods of passive movement treatment. It discusses the effectiveness of gentler manipulation of conscious patients. It addresses the relationship between the treatment and the patient’s symptoms and signs. Some of the topics covered in the book are the organic disorders not involving the vertebrae; disease of the spinal cord; passive physiological intervertebral movement; techniques of mobilization; method of oscillatory movement; postero-anterior central vertebral pressure; and method of progression of the lumbar region. The methods in the application of mobilization are fully covered. An in-depth account of the manipulative techniques is provided. The manipulations are progressions from mobilizations which have increased in strength. Application of such manipulations is completely presented. A chapter is devoted to the movements of the faulty intervertebral joint. Another section focuses on the assessment related to abnormal movements at the initial examination. The book can provide useful information to therapists, doctors, students, and researchers.

Maitland's Peripheral Manipulation

Management of Neuromusculoskeletal Disorders -

Author: Elly Hengeveld,Kevin Banks

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0702054577

Category: Medical

Page: 576

View: 4949

The legacy of Geoff Maitland and his seminal work, Peripheral Manipulation, continues in this fifth edition, with Elly Hengeveld and Kevin Banks leading an international team of experts who demonstrate how to manage peripheral neuromusculoskeletal disorders using the principles and practice of the Maitland Concept. Together, they ensure the heart of the Concept beats on by promoting collaborative decision-making with the patient at centre and emphasizing the art and science of observation, listening, palpation and movement skills. A key feature of the new edition focuses on a more evidence-based and analytical view of the role of mobilization and manipulation in clinical practice. The authors have written in a way that reflects their application of the Maitland Concept and how they have integrated techniques in the light of advancement in professional knowledge. Each chapter stands alone as a ‘master class’. The text is systematically arranged focusing on detailed assessment, clinical reasoning and re-assessment to determine the physical dysfunction and efficacy of manipulative physiotherapy techniques, while also advocating continuous communication and interaction. Techniques of passive mobilization are also described, specifically designed around the individual patient’s condition. All the chapters are written from a clinical perspective and review the evidence which informs how to deal with and manage peripheral joint pain as they present to the practitioner. Furthermore, each peripheral region (craniomandibular, upper limbs and lower limbs) is considered from the point of view of best practice in analysing and hypothesising subjective data, examination, treatment and management of peripheral pain conditions. Brand new to the fifth edition is the addition of a companion website – Maitland’s Manipulation eResources (www.maitlandsresources.com) – providing access to a range of valuable learning materials which include videos, MCQs, interactive case studies, research links, and bonus chapters. World-leading experts provide evidence relating the Maitland Concept to clinical practice Evidence supporting practice Covers both subjective and physical examination Best practice management using mobilization and manipulation Case studies – how and when to integrate the Maitland Concept into clinical practice Chapter-based learning outcomes, keywords and glossaries Companion website – Maitland’s Manipulation eResources (www.maitlandsresources.com) Expert perspectives and supporting evidence Case studies Companion website – www.maitlandsresources.com – containing: Video Bank of over 480 video clips showing examination and treatment techniques Image Bank of over 1,000 illustrations Interactive case studies Over 200 MCQs Bonus chapters on additional principles and techniques of examination / treatment Weblink references to abstracts
