This unique guide takes an in-depth look at trigger point therapy. Divided into two sections – Functional Muscle Chains and Trigger Points and Their Treatment – this book combines detailed theory with tried and practical techniques.
The text covers the basics of functional muscle chains and the origin of myofascial pain arising from the musculoskeletal system, for example, due to poor posture. The reader will learn how various stretching exercises augment the myofascial therapy methods.
Anatomic drawings and liberal use of photographs in this book will help the reader to localize the trigger points and the associated pain areas.

Advanced Statistics for Physical and Occupational Therapy
Advanced Statistics for Physical and Occupational Therapy explains the basis for statistical analyses that are commonly used to answer clinical research questions related to physical and occupational therapy. This textbook provides a resource to help students and faculty in physical and occupational therapy graduate programs understand the basis for common statistical analyses and be able to apply these techniques in their own research. This textbook provides readers with the basis for common statistical analyses, including t-tests, analysis of variance, regression, and nonparametric tests. Each chapter includes step-by-step tutorials with corresponding example data sets explaining how to conduct these statistical analyses using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software and the Excel Analysis ToolPak, as well as how to identify and interpret relevant output and report results.

Clinical Case Studies Across the Medical Continuum for Physical Therapists
Direct access legislation and a growing aging population has led to a greater number of people with medical complexities seeking physical therapy services. To ensure physical therapy students are adequately prepared to enter the demanding workforce, academic educators must provide clinical case studies that match clinical demands. Clinical Case Studies Across the Medical Continuum for Physical Therapists by distinguished editors Julie Skrzat and Sean Griech and an impressive group of expert contributors was developed with that goal in mind.
Twenty medically complex case studies, each with three standalone cases covering three distinct clinical settings, are presented to show medical and physical therapy management throughout the continuum of care. These high-quality case studies cover all the body systems and detail conditions including chronic, neurological, oncologic, and traumatic, which closely mirror cases seen in clinical practice. Each case study includes extensive medical data from an interprofessional team, imaging/diagnostic tests, social history, and physical therapy information. The text promotes interprofessional education by requiring learners to consider elements beyond the physical therapy plan of care.
- The design of the case studies enables learners to understand disease evolution, progression of medical management, and the reasoning behind subsequent changes in physical therapy care plans
- Questions and answers encompassing all levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy, coupled with pause points and key points, promote critical thinking and problem solving
- Six videos demonstrate how experienced clinicians respond to real-time clinical challenges with effective patient management strategies
This must-have resource for doctorate-level physical therapy students promotes synthesis of information across all aspects of care. It provides a multidimensional representation of the patient, facilitating optimization of physical therapy plans of care, both in the classroom and clinic.
