Another winner! This book introduces massage techniques
for orthopedic conditions, promoting the alignment
of soft tissue relating to pain and dysfunction.
An essential manual for clinical massage therapy,
it contains brief descriptions of rationale behind
mechanisms of injury to and repair of soft tissue,
and anatomy of each body area. This text includes
detailed assessment for each body region, discusses
common lesions, and provides illustrated instructions
on how to administer this scientifically based style
of massage. Based on traditional orthopedic assessment
protocols, coverage includes range of motion, passive
and isometric testing, and tests that determine
the severity of a condition or injury. Again this
is a human book, but the subject matter is often
applicable to animals.
