US-based physical therapists Page, Frank, and Lardner present a practical text for clinicians treating patients with musculoskeletal complaints. Studying under the Czech neurologist and physiotherapist Vladimir Janda (1928-2002), all three authors learned Janda's unique approach to musculoskeletal medicine. In contrast to the traditional structural approach focusing on anatomy and biomechanics, Janda's functional approach emphasizes the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and in chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Combining theory, evidence, and applications, the text offers clinicians a systematic guide for incorporating Janda's methods into their practices. Coverage includes the scientific basis for Janda's approach to muscle imbalance, the functional evaluation of muscle imbalance, Janda's approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal syndromes, and the application of Janda's methods to specific body regions and complaints, including chronic neck and back pain, shoulder impingement, and anterior knee pain. Illustrated throughout with b&w photographs and diagrams. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
