The book covers most current research and theory to underpin practice. It provides relevant clinical applications for sport and movement, and gives the manual therapist information on how different activities influence the body and the kind of injuries that might occur. The book upgrades the knowledge of the sport professional, yoga teacher and Pilates trainer with the necessary background to understand the injuries that might present and how to assess and refer.
This book serves as a primer for all professionals: doctors, physical therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, yoga teachers, or fitness professionals, to give them a solid working knowledge of fascia both as a tissue and a system. Lavishly illustrated and with a strong storyline, each chapter logically connects the reader to the next (rather like the fascia itself) and gives the reader a clear understanding of the clinical significance of fascia, the latest in fascia science, and how the fascial system interacts with the other systems of the body from the cellular level on up. This book, while complete unto itself, will also serve as a valuable reference for deeper study.
Entries cover issues related to sports medicine, including diagnostic and treatment techniques, conditioning and training, diet and nutrition, doping and performance enhancement, injury prevention, and career opportunities.
