Complete atlas of manual stretching techniques and studies about stretching in sports and therapy.
Covers research, theory and practice. Special attention has been paid to make it easy for the reader to learn which muscle is treated (anatomical drawing with description) followed by the treatment technique (a photograph showing positions of the patient and the therapist with description) on the same page or double page.
