Complete Myoskeletal & Sports Therapy (combined) by Aubrey Gowing

‘Complete Myoskeletal and Sports Therapy’ combines book 1 and book 2 and includes 4 bonus articles on specific conditions.

In this hardback, collectors edition, Aubrey guides the reader through the complex assessment process recommended on most sports therapy programs at level 6 (UK level 5). Each sports injury is discussed in detail, aided by clear photos and anatomy images. This wide ranging text provides expert guidance on how to maintain an unbroken chain of events to maximize successful clinical outcomes. This chain begins with client intake informing assessment, progresses with the interpretation of findings informing the treatment approach, through into home retraining recommendations.

The treatment recommendations outlined in this text follow clear overarching principles, with logical steps to progress through comprehensive treatment protocols that are clearly described and illustrated, including some of the most beautifully detailed, accurately mapped images of the relevant anatomy.

This text also provides guidelines for assessing treatment outcomes and the rationale for choosing stretching or strength training for muscles in each region of the body. This comprehensive approach will help achieve the most beneficial outcomes for clients while providing confidence to the intermediate and even advanced practitioner.

‘Aubrey has found a way to educate both the novice and the experienced bodyworker. With a user-friendly road map, he teaches therapists how to first evaluate a client’s strengths and weaknesses, then apply Myoskeletal techniques to make lasting changes. In these pages, Aubrey's own deep experience, dedication and passion all shine — to the direct benefit of the reader.’
