Massage for Orthopedic Conditions
Thomas Hendrickson DC

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 orthopedic massage,
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.
