  • Presents an approach developed by the author from the basis of manual therapy for the examination, assessment and treatment of the articular, muscular and neural systems
  • Follows the principles of assessment and treatment of the fascial lines as described by Tom Myers in his book Anatomy Trains.
  • Written by a very senior and highly regarded physical therapist who teaches widely in Canada and Europe. Another well-known Canadian PT (Diane Lee) will assist with the writing.
  • Practitioners dealing with musculoskeletal pain often find that no matter what they have tried in their existing ‘tool-kit’, it hasn’t had the positive effect they are seeking. Or they may experience situations where clients complain of multiple areas of pain that don’t correspond or fit into the paradigms with which clinicians are familiar. What they may be missing is the fascial component. This book will introduce them to it.
  • The book is user-friendly for the practitioner, with a minimum of theory and an emphasis on practical applications.
