Overview

Closed kinetic chain exercise involving multiple joints is by no means new or state of the art. But it's only recently that exciting research has been published confirming its effectiveness in rehabilitation, sport conditioning, and injury prevention.

Closed Kinetic Chain Exercise: A Comprehensive Guide to Multiple Joint Exercises brings you up to date on the latest research findings and provides creative and practical tips and guidelines for optimal application of the technique in settings with patients, athletes, and others.

A valuable blending of science and practice, this comprehensive book is an indispensable resource for both practitioners and researchers. Written by clinicians who use this technique daily in their work, the book interprets the latest research, clarifies the scientific principles underlying the technique, and highlights important differences between open and closed kinetic chain exercise. The authors reinforce their points with examples from everyday life and sports to make the scientific information relevant and meaningful. Baseline measurements for joint interplay and the stress and load these joints bear are provided as an aid in testing and monitoring individual needs and progress. Various testing protocols and their sequencing are also discussed.

The book goes beyond the “whys” of closed kinetic chain exercise to provide you with usable how-tos for applying a variety of techniques and variations to condition the upper and lower extremities. Forty-five closed kinetic chain exercises effective in enhancing muscular strength, power, and endurance as well as functional performance are incorporated into an individualized progressive training or rehabilitation program. Understanding the difficulties in treating the elbow and shoulder, the authors pay special attention to the use and progression of closed kinetic chain exercise in these areas.

This user-friendly manual brings this therapeutic tool to life with examples, tables, and other visuals to show you how to perform the exercises and integrate them easily into clinical, fitness, and health settings.

The book features the following:
-More than 70 illustrations and photos that eliminate questions about “how to do it”

-Step-by-step descriptions and examples of an array of practical exercises for easy reference on the job
From theoretical aspects to everyday application, Closed Kinetic Chain Exercise: A Comprehensive Guide to Multiple Joint Exercises covers it all. You'll gain a solid foundation of knowledge and skill to improve your confidence and effectiveness in using these exercises to build strength, enhance performance, and improve health.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ben Kivlan, MPT (North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: "This concise book covers concepts, mechanics, efficacy, and clinical application of closed chain exercise using pictures, graphs, charts and a comprehensive reference list to support the information. "
Purpose: "The purpose is to provide a scientifically based reference to support the clinical application of closed chain exercise. Due to the controversy that has surrounded this topic, it is a worthy objective. The authors meet their objective by providing the reader access to the current literature regarding closed chain exercise. "
Audience: "The book is written for an orthopedic/sports therapist or sports scientist as a clinical reference for the application of closed chain exercise. The authors are true authorities on this topic as they have made valuable contributions to the scientific literature and are well-respected clinicians in the field of physical therapy. "
Features: "The authors review concepts import to understanding the mechanics and application of closed chain exercise. The book is logically organized and well depicted with easy to understand charts, graphs, and illustrations that strengthen concepts. Pictures of creative applications of closed chain exercises are helpful in demonstrating proper execution of exercises. Although the content favors closed chain exercises for the lower extremity, there are chapters devoted to the upper extremity as well. "
Assessment: This is an excellent reference on a traditionally controversial topic. Its strength certainly lies in the authors' ability to assimilate the current research that both supports and disputes the efficacy of closed chain exercise. Although the title may suggest a bias to support closed chain over open chain exercise, the authors are objective and current in their review of the literature. The book is concise but thorough. It makes for an excellent resource for the orthopedic/sports therapist to review principles and clinical application of closed chain upper and lower extremity exercise and it provides a strong starting point in researching the scientific basis for closed chain exercise.
