Conceived and written over forty years ago, it has brought back to centre stage biomechanics, which previously was dismissed as anecdotal in works on human anatomy. As a result of this impetus every work on anatomy nowadays covers in depth the functional features of the locomotor apparatus; in short, biomechanics has become a science that cannot be ignored. This book will be a valuable text for manual therapists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and osteopaths interested in the biomechanics of the human body. A synoptic diagram showing the factors affecting the stability of the knee Explanation of the presence of two bones in the leg, based on an understanding of the functional anatomy of the ankle The idea of the universal joint as applicable to the ankle-hindfoot articular complex The vital concept of viewing the leg as "compartments" A new chapter on the physiology of walking A synoptic table of the nerves of the lower limb Appendix with updated mechanical models of three-dimensional diagrams that can be assembled, providing a teaching tool for student and teacher alike.

Recent research into the physiological effects of massage has strengthened the justification for its use in the treatment of soft-tissue pain and injury conditions.
Orthopedic soft-tissue problems are common among the general population, whether from sports, occupational activities, or chronic pain. This text presents a comprehensive and in-depth look at the physiological nature of these conditions and the massage treatments most effective for their relief. A particular contribution this text makes is its validation for the role of massage in treating orthopedic conditions.
In addition, it aims to help the clinician understand the relationship between the soft tissues to which they apply their techniques and the overall orthopedic disorder affecting their clients. Although written chiefly for massage practitioners, the lessons it teaches are relevant to any practitioner who is concerned with the treatment of soft-tissue injuries.
Includes detailed technical information, extensive illustrations, and reliable reference material essential to everyday practice. Provides a comprehensive approach to treatment of common soft tissue pain and injury.
Explains common orthopedic problems in detail, addressing biomechanics, kinesiology, and anatomy. Provides an in-depth discussion of the physiologic rationale for soft tissue treatments and explains those most effective for each condition. Integrates treatment approaches from across the field and gives detailed, easy-to-follow steps for their application.
Compares traditional treatments with soft tissue manipulation for each problem discussed. Clearly links anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics with clinical practice. Designed for quick and easy reference with more than high-quality full colour illustrations and numerous photos of treatment techniques.
New clinical case studies and tips illustrate the techniques discussed. Now presented in full colour. New step-by-step photographs depict the techniques described in full detail. Increased artwork and photographs make learning more visual. Case studies demonstrate techniques and management in clinical practice Clinical hints and tips throughout. Most Read.
