Elsevier Australia has published 'Kinetic Control: The Management of Uncontrolled Movement' – a unique clinical reference for understanding movement control dysfunction and how it relates to pain
Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Elsevier Australia has released ‘Kinetic Control: The Management of Uncontrolled Movement ‘– a new human movement textbook aimed at both students and clinicians.
This highly-illustrated clinical reference sheds valuable light on the issue of uncontrolled movement or motor control dysfunction. The book shows how uncontrolled movement develops as well as how it links to the production and recurrence of pain – the main reasons people seek help from osteopaths and physiotherapists.
‘Kinetic Control’ introduces its readers to a unique system pioneered by authors Mark Comerford and Sarah Mottram. This system involves region-specific movement control testing, along with diagnostic sub-classification of musculoskeletal disorders and pain. All this is backed by step-by-step instructions for assessment, diagnosis, classification and treatment.
‘Kinetic Control: The Management of Uncontrolled Movement ‘is packed with motor control and movement retraining strategies and instructions. A great university book for third and fourth year undergraduate students, ‘Kinetic Control’ is also a useful osteopathy or physiotherapy textbook for postgraduates and professionals alike. And readers can be confident that all content is based on solid evidence and research.
Students and therapists can use the book to develop an assessment framework for diagnosing dysfunction, pain-sensitive tissues and pain mechanisms. The clinical reasoning framework in this important health title will also assist readers’ clinical decision-making.
The book’s excellent photographic instructions demonstrate uncontrolled movement tests, plus many of the retraining options for treating lumbar, cervical and thoracic spine, shoulder and hip issues.
