A manual therapist's guide to movement : teaching motor skills to the orthopaedic patient by Gordon Browne( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Manual Therapist's Guide to Movement examines the use of non-traditional movement systems in a physical therapy setting, focusing on orthopedic conditions or injuries. Browne derives much of the content of this book from two sophisticated movement systems: the Feldenkrais Method and the Chinese martial art of Tai Chi. He explores the intersection between movement and medicine and explains some of the potential applications of these methods to orthopedic conditions in a language understandable to physical therapists and others with a medical, rather than a movement, background." "The unique style of this approach features reader participation in a series of movement lessons. These lessons start in chapter three and include a written verbal description, picture sequences to illustrate each movement variation and a breakdown and discussion of the lesson afterward. These discussions include descriptions and examples of principles of ideal movement, teaching technique, applications to a clinical setting, links to other similar lessons and descriptions of some possible variations of that lesson. In short, the reader experiences the movement subjectively then reads about the design of that particular lesson and for whom it might be useful." --Book Jacket
