The Malalignment Syndrome: diagnosis and treatment of common pelvic and back pain / Edition 2

Lack of appreciation and knowledge of the malalignment syndrome often leads to a failure to notice the possible aetiological or predisposing factors contributing to many musculoskeletal problems. Recognition of the syndrome by physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths, podiatrists, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, sports trainers and others dealing with patients and athletes (including equine) can help them implement appropriate treatment and training to correct the malalignment and actually prevent the initial occurrence of symptoms.

Now in its second edition, The Malalignment Syndrome has established itself as a trusty one-stop reference providing a detailed description of this syndrome and how it can be identified and treated. It concentrates on the trunk,pelvis, spine,sacroiliac joint and legs, incorporatinganatomy, biomechanics, stability issues, possible causes, examination and diagnostic techniques as well as a comprehensive treatment approach. Emphasis is also placed on the participation of the patient/athlete in the day-to day treatment process to achieve long-term results.

• Evidence-based practical advice and guidance
• Multidisciplinary in approach
• Highly illustrated with photographs, diagrams and anatomical models
• Recognizes the importance of prevention as well as treatment
• Summary and case boxes

• Over 100 new illustrations
• Additional examination techniques to facilitate diagnosis
• Extensively rewritten for easier reading
• Contributions by David Lane (Chapter 6: Horses, Saddles and Riders), Sarah Stevens and Karina Steinberg (Chapter 8: Treatment: The Manual Therapy Modes)
• Focuses on diagnosis/treatment ofmalalignment-related pelvic, legand back pain
