Book Description :

The human pelvis, in particular movement at the pelvic joints, has recently become the focus of a number of major research programmes. The outcomes of this research are giving rise to a new set of questions with important clinical implications. These questions include: Is the consideration of the lumbar spine and pelvis as separate entities an obstacle to the effective treatment of back pain? What are the similarities between lumbopelvic pain and peripartum pain? Does the latest anatomical and biomechanical research provide the missing links? How is the stability of the pelvis maintained? What effect does lumbar spine surgery have on pelvic stability? What is the relevance of the latest kinematic findings to the prevention and treatment of low back pain? Movement, Stability and Low Back Pain brings together the latest findings which help to provide the answers to these questions. Back pain is one of the most common clinical problems in modern society. Its safe and effective management concerns many professional groups from gynaecologists and midwives to physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and orthopaedic surgeons.

Book Description :

Back Pain: a movement problem is a practical manual to assist all students and clinicians concerned with the evaluation, diagnosis and management of the movement related problems seen in those with spinal pain disorders. It offers an integrative model of posturomovement dysfunction which describes the more commonly observed features and related key patterns of altered control. This serves as a framework, guiding the practitioner’s assessment of the individual patient. Examines aspects of motor control and functional movement in the spine, its development, and explores probable reasons why it is altered in people with back pain Maps the more common clinical patternsof presentation in those with spinal pain and provides a simple clinical classification system based upon posturomovement impairments Integrates contemporary science with the insights of extensive clinical practice Integrates manual and exercise therapy and provides guiding principles for more rational therapeutic interventions: which patterns of movement in general need to be encouraged which to lessen and how to do so Abundantly illustrated to present concepts and to illustrate the difference between so-called normal and dysfunctrional presentations Written by a practitioner for practitioners

Book Description :

The legacy of Geoff Maitland and his seminal work, Vertebral Manipulation, continues in this eighth edition, with Elly Hengeveld and Kevin Banks leading an international team of experts who demonstrate how to manage vertebral 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 spinal and pelvic pain as they present to the practitioner. Furthermore, each vertebral region (cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacroiliac/pelvic) is considered from the point of view of best practice in analysing and hypothesising subjective data, examination, treatment and management of spinal pain conditions. Brand new to the eighth 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

Book Description :

Lack of appreciation and knowledge of the malalignment syndrome often leads to a failure to notice the possible aetiological or predisposing factors contributing to many musculoskeletal problems. Recognition of the syndrome by physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths, podiatrists, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, sports trainers and others dealing with patients and athletes (including equine) can help them implement appropriate treatment and training to correct the malalignment and actually prevent the initial occurrence of symptoms. Now in its second edition, The Malalignment Syndrome has established itself as a trusty one-stop reference providing a detailed description of this syndrome and how it can be identified and treated. It concentrates on the trunk, pelvis, spine, sacroiliac joint and legs, incorporating anatomy, biomechanics, stability issues, possible causes, examination and diagnostic techniques as well as a comprehensive treatment approach. Emphasis is also placed on the participation of the patient/athlete in the day-to day treatment process to achieve long-term results. Evidence-based practical advice and guidance Multidisciplinary in approach Highly illustrated with photographs, diagrams and anatomical models Recognizes the importance of prevention as well as treatment Summary and case boxes Over 100 new illustrations Additional examination techniques to facilitate diagnosis Extensively rewritten for easier reading Contributions by David Lane (Chapter 6: Horses, Saddles and Riders), Sarah Stevens and Karina Steinberg (Chapter 8: Treatment: The Manual Therapy Modes) Focuses on diagnosis/treatment of malalignment-related pelvic, leg and back pain

Book Description :

Pain is a complex experience, influenced by many variables. There is currently growing interest in the influence of sex and gender on the experience of pain. The fact that there are sex differences in pain and analgesia is now a well-recognized phenomenon within the field of pain medicine. However, the specific mechanisms underlying these differences remain somewhat poorly understood. Traditionally, these sex differences in pain experience have been attributed largely to psychological, behavioral and socio-cultural variables - in particular, a perceived greater willingness on the part of women to report painful symptoms and seek medical attention. Although psychosocial factors do influence pain perception, there is now substantial evidence to support a strong role for hormonal factors mediating sex differences in pain modulation. In Pain in Women: A Clinical Guide, a renowned group of experts in pain medicine breaks new ground in the field by synthesizing and elucidating the range of biological and neurohormonal factors underlying these conditions and clarifying potential treatment options based on these factors. The initial section of this unique title introduces the topic of pain in women and its importance and then goes on to describe hormonal and myofascial considerations in this patient population. The second section addresses specific pain disorders common in women and the various treatment options for these, including rehabilitative and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments. The third and final section covers the specific populations of the pregnant/postpartum woman, issues related to breast cancer, the female athlete, menopausal considerations and the role of physical therapy in women’s health. Timely and state-of-the-art, Pain in Women: A Clinical Guide is an important new reference that fills a significant need in the developing area of pain medicine.

Book Description :

This book presents the latest information on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve entrapment neuropathy, focusing on the lumbar spine and the lower limbs. The book is divided into three thematic sections, on para-lumbar spine disease, lower limb entrapment neuropathy, and comprehensive reviews. In addition to exploring the latest advances, it also features short essays by the Editor that provide valuable insights into the disease. Though neuropathy of the upper limbs has been studied in detail and substantial evidence is available, there are very few books on para-lumbar spine and lower limb entrapment neuropathy. Often, the symptoms are misdiagnosed as lumbar spine disease, overlooked, or treated as failed back surgery syndrome. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the disease and shares the latest findings from the last 10 years of research into its diagnosis and treatment, offering essential guidance for general clinicians, spinal surgeons and neurosurgeon who treat numbness and pain in the lower limbs and lower back. It will also benefit young doctors interested in the field, nurses, therapists and patients

Book Description :

A comprehensive guide to understanding the complexities of the shoulder and treating shoulder injury and pain The area of the body we commonly refer to as "the shoulder" is in fact a complex of interconnected systems--bones, tendons, muscle, and joints that together work to move our arms, hands, and fingers. Because the shoulder must trade stability for mobility, it is also one of the weakest joints of the body, which explains why it is one of the most common areas of physical pain; injury located in the shoulder can affect areas throughout the entire body. The Vital Shoulder Complex is designed for anyone interested in understanding, treating, and healing shoulder-related pain. Author and renowned bodyworker John Gibbons explains and illustrates the dynamics of the shoulder complex in ways that are accessible and enlightening. The theory and principles described in this book can assist physical therapists in formulating effective treatment protocols towards quick rehabilitation for their patients. These include: • Differential diagnosis of shoulder pathology • The relationship of the pelvis, the SI joint, and the gluteals to the shoulder complex • Pathologies of the shoulder and cervical spine • Special tests associated with the shoulder complex • Rehabilitation and exercise protocols for the shoulder complex
