Clinical Massage Therapy : A Structural Approach to Pain Management

CLINICAL MASSAGE THERAPY, 1/e teaches effective therapeutic massage techniques that can prevent or eliminate multifaceted pain conditions, including chronic pain, sports injuries, and structural imbalance.

Detailed color illustrations reveal underlying pathologies, and flowcharts explain treatment steps. Massage students learn from Body Maps; Expert Opinion features; precautionary Alerts; clear Body Mechanics instructions; case studies, review questions, and a complete glossary. The text’s multimodal and multidisciplinary approach makes it equally valuable to physical and occupational therapists, trainers, chiropractors, osteopaths, nurses, manipulative therapists, and physicians.
