Enhanced e-book integrates video with text to yield insight into positional release therapy


Mar 29, 2016 03:17

Clinical Guide to Positional Release Therapy (Enhanced Version) provides professionals in the sports medicine and therapy fields with an easy-to-read reference, dynamically combined with integrated video, on the clinical application of positional release therapy (PRT). The enhanced e-book is an invaluable resource for those who desire to learn, practice, and perfect the art of PRT to gently treat patients of all ages who have acute and chronic somatic dysfunction, including tightness and pain.

Author Timothy E. Speicher, president of the Positional Release Therapy Institute, uses contemporary science and evidence-based practice to provide health care practitioners—including athletic trainers, physical therapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors—with a manual of PRT treatment techniques. This resource is also suitable for students enrolled in upper-level courses in athletic training, physical therapy, and massage therapy programs.

 

Clinical Guide to Positional Release Therapy dedicates considerable attention to palpation instruction, a core skill that enables successful diagnoses and applications of many orthopedic assessments and therapeutic techniques. The highly visual enhanced e-book is organized in a manner that enables the reader to acquire a foundation of the applications, procedures, and theory of PRT. Readers also will gain knowledge of anatomical and kinesiological structures to ensure success in assessment. Application of adjunctive therapies, such as ultrasound, electronic stimulation, massage, joint stabilization, and therapeutic exercise, is provided throughout the enhanced e-book to complement PRT and facilitate an optimal healing environment.

 

Clinical Guide to Positional Release Therapy (Enhanced Version) includes more than 400 full-color photos and illustrations as well as 61 integrated videos demonstrating various PRT techniques. Scanning charts listing structures and mapping of the anatomical areas specific to the chapter content appear at the end of each chapter.

 

The most common conditions and the techniques used to treat them are detailed, and Dr. Speicher provides advice about adapting the techniques to other conditions and muscle groups. Whether students are just being introduced to PRT or medical professionals are already seasoned practitioners, Clinical Guide to Positional Release Therapy will assist them in using PRT in a simplified and structured manner to improve patient outcomes.

 

Purchase this enhanced e-book with video through Amazon’s Kindle Store, Apple’s iBookstore, Google Play, or Barnes & Noble for NOOK.
