Synopsis

Covering all forms of stretches for able-bodied, injured and selected special populations, Therapeutic Stretching is a comprehensive resource for practitioners and students in massage therapy, osteopathy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation and personal and athletic training. Therapeutic Stretching offers both passive and active rehabilitative stretches for musculoskeletal conditions and injuries of the foot and ankle, knee and leg, hip and thigh, upper limb, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers, and back and neck. Author Jane Johnson, a practicing physiotherapist, sport massage therapist and body work instructor, provides information on incorporating passive stretching as a treatment option and selecting appropriate active stretches for clients to practice at home. Featuring more than 230 color photos, Therapeutic Stretching provides excellent visual instruction on client positioning and the most effective handholds for the application of passive stretches to various joints and soft tissues. A user-friendly format, clear explanations of stretching techniques and visual guidance from photos help students and practitioners readily incorporate these stretches into their practice. Therapeutic Stretching is part of the Hands-On Guides for Therapists series, providing tools of assessment and treatment that fall well within the realm of massage therapists and are useful for other body workers, such as osteopaths and fitness instructors.
