Volume 2: The Lower Body. Provides an invaluable source of reference to all manual therapy students and practitioners.

Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques - the Lower Body is the companion volume to the widely acclaimed book by the same authors on The Upper Body. Volume 1 focuses on the management of the soft tissues of the upper body (the cervical region, cranium, shoulder, arm and hand and the thorax). Volume 2 addresses the problems of the lower body (lumbar spine, sacrum and pelvis, hip, leg and foot). Together the two volumes present the theories and techniques of manual treatment for chronic neuromuscular pain throughout the body. The theory and practical application of neuromuscular techniques is described within the context of the normal anatomy and physiology of the related structures. Step by step protocols are given for each muscle to be treated and particular reference is made to the treatment of trigger points. The book is illustrated with numerous two-colour diagrams and photographs which make the anatomy and techniques described in the text easier to understand.KEY FEATURES· Comprehensive ‘one-stop’ text on the management of somatic pain and dysfunction.· All muscles covered from perspective of assessment and treatment of myofascial pain.· Describes the normal anatomy and physiology as well as the common dysfunctions.· Provides indications for treatments and guidance on making the appropriate treatment choice for each patient· Gives practical step-by-step descriptions for each technique· Describes the different neuromuscular techniques (NMT) in relations to the joint anatomy involved· Includes muscle energy and positional release techniques as well as NMT to give a variety of treatment options for each condition.· Particular attention is paid to the location and treatment of trigger points· Covers not only manual techniques but also patient intake, postural assessment, hydrotherapies and nutritional support.· Provides guidance for the patient in the use of self-help approaches· Highly illustrated with two-colour printing throughout· Up-to-date, evidence-based and fully referenced
