The second edition of this best selling title continues to provide a blending of scientific theory and evaluative and therapeutic techniques in myofascial manipulation. With the help of three new contributors, the editors have made substantial revisions, including updating findings related to the histology and biomechanics of myofascia and the physiology of myofascial manipulation. A new chapter on neurophysiologic mechanisms has been added, along with completely revised information on myofascial pain syndromes and additional illustrated techniques. This book is an excellent handbook on manual therapy for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and massage therapists, whether in practice or in training.
