9780443101144: Muscle Energy Techniques with DVD-ROM, 3e (Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques)

This comprehensive text describes the basis and practice of Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), a widely recognized approach to treating musculoskeletal dysfunction. It describes those manipulative techniques in which a patient, on request, actively uses his or her muscles from a controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counterforce applied by the practitioner. These techniques are combined from methods used in physical therapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and manual medicine. A companion DVD-ROM includes video clips demonstrating the application of techniques.

  • Details the background to soft tissue dysfunction and explains the chain reactions which occur as part of such dysfunctions.
  • Provides precise assessment and diagnosis guidelines.
  • Gives many variations on the safe use of MET in acute, chronic, and rehabilitation settings.
  • Explains the use of MET for whole muscle problems, local dysfunction, and joint restrictions.
  • Suggests patient self-application methods.
  • Includes a companion DVD-ROM with video clips of the author demonstrating the techniques.
  • Additional techniques are added to both text and DVD-ROM videos.
  • Information is expanded on some of the techniques included in previous edition.
  • Content is updated throughout, with reference to the latest published research.
  • Four new chapters cover efficacy and research, MET in a massage therapy setting, MET in treatment of athletic injuries, and MET in physical medicine settings.

Review:

"I'm rather taken with the new edition of this book. Dr. Chaitow has gathered well known experts from several disciplines and has crafted a book that will be used by all of them. A great deal of care has gone into this book. There is a wealth of clinical information and a very good overview of research regarding the use of MET in managing a range of conditions and clinical situations. The focus on other disciplines is a great plus in this new edition. I recommend it."

Weighted Numerical Score 95 - 4 Stars!
