Principles of neuromusculoskeletal treatment and management: A guide for therapists

Nicola Petty

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authoredpeer-review


"Principles of Neuromusculoskeletal Treatment and Management" presents the theoretical framework that underpins the treatment and management of patients with neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction. The first part of the book draws together the relevant anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and movement analysis to present a comprehensive overview of the function of joints, muscles and nerves. This is followed by a description of the clinical manifestations of dysfunction for each tissue, while the text recognises the interrelationship of joint, nerve and muscle in both function and dysfunction. Separate chapters then discuss the principles and theory of treatment approaches for joint, nerve and muscle. The overall management of patients and issues surrounding the patient-therapist relationship are discussed in the final chapter. Written by the authors of the highly successful textbook "Neuromusculoskeletal Examination and Assessment", this new book provides the ideal sequel and companion to that text. It introduces students and clinicians with little or no experience of managing patients with neuromusculoskeletal disorders to the various treatment and management principles that they may consider with their patients. This book does not give detailed treatment descriptions for each condition but instead offers guidance on how to make the most appropriate treatment choice from the options available. For the more experienced therapist, it provides a useful aide-memoire to the treatment and management options available.
