MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUES | A Practical Guide for Physical Therapists Second Edition

Revised and updated: a fresh new look to this established bestseller, offering unique insights into this versatile and highly effective technique in the physical therapists’ toolbox.

Muscle Energy Techniques (METs) is a must for any student or practitioner of physical therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, or massage therapy. This practical guide, packed full of colour photographs, fully illustrates the theory and practice of a range muscle energy techniques.

The book is broken in five parts. In Part I, the author examines the theory and principles behind muscle energy techniques, with chapters introducing the technique itself, muscle imbalances, myofascial slings and core muscle relationships, which leads neatly into the practice behind the technique.

Parts II to IV break down the technique into body areas, i.e., upper body, lower body, trunk and pelvis, with clear descriptive explanations of the techniques accompanied by colour photographs with directional arrows showing the practitioner how to maximise the benefits of the treatment. Clear drawings allow the reader to understand the basic anatomy of each muscle.

A concluding Part V shows two applications of METs: self-lengthening techniques for the shoulder complex and muscle weakness testing and the gluteals.

The complete guide for any student or practitioner of physical therapy and related modalities, this is a book that you will refer to again and again.
