Overview

Describes the basis and practice of MET, a widely recognized approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction. It fuses methods used in physical therapy, osteopathy and manual medicine. The text provides a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of the techniques. The CD-ROM includes video clips to demonstrate the application of the techniques, and so supports and supplements the text.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The addition of a CD-Rom to supplement the practical descriptions is probably worth the expense of buying a new copy alone. Video clips on (the) CD-Rom provide that additional perspective when explaining a practical topic that is sometimes dificult to do in 2D format. Well done to the author and publishers for this welcome innovation." Nicola Phillips, Physical Therapy in Sport (2002)
Dana J. Lawrence
Muscle energy technique (MET) is used predominantly by the osteopathic profession. However, it has not been widely accepted outside that profession, and texts discussing it are hard to come by. This book will go a long way toward alleviating that problem. It discusses in great detail the background and use of MET; additionally, it provides a chiropractic overview by adding a chapter by Dr. Craig Liebenson, who has done much to bring such techniques to the attention of the chiropractic profession. The book places a great deal of emphasis upon soft tissue treatment, and a substantial amount of space is given over the treatment considerations. Its goal is to provide an overview of soft tissue dysfunction and how they can lead to other problems, to discuss assessment and diagnosis of such problems, provide information on the use of MET and its variations in treating those conditions and especially for trigger point problems, and to suggest patient self-application methods. This is directed at osteopaths and physical therapists as well as other manual medicine practitioners such as chiropractors. The chapter written by Dr. Liebenson discusses how manual resistance techniques can be used in rehabilitation. This is a plus for the text, and will help bring it a wider audience. Like the other books in this series, the illustrations are of high quality, and of good pedagogic value. References are numerous and current. There is a wealth of basic and clinical information. The material is covered in sufficient depth. I'm impressed with the entire series that Dr. Chaitow has prepared. As a look at modern osteopathic procedures, the series is well worth purchasing, and any one of the booksstands alone quite well. This one is nicely done, and has the kind of depth that makes it a worthwhile purchase for both the practitioner and the student. For anyone interested in learning the clinical osteopathic procedures in common use, this and the other books are essential purchases. They have great didactic value, and this more than most.
