Product description


Joanne Elphinston was a speaker at a Sports Injury Conference in Glasgow a few years ago. I enjoyed her presentation, finding her approach to musculoskeletal stability in sport both novel and well-considered.

The second edition of this book will help anyone working in the physical therapies to assist patients with achieving optimum flexibility and strength. Elphinston draws on many influences, including Shirley Sahrmann and Thomas Myers, to introduce new ways to look at movement dysfunction and musculoskeletal pain. The former presents what she calls a 'kinesiopathic model', identifying all components involved in a mechanical problem. The latter postulates a fascial link to chronic or recurrent body weakness.

Stability, Sport and Performance Movementchallenges the prevailing orthodox view that clinical diagnosis and treatment for medical pain should focus solely on the pain-producing tissue. It promotes consideration and assessment of the function of associated structures. The book can help inform both the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal movement patterns.

I found it a rewarding read and can wholeheartedly recommend it. --Donald Scott, ND DO The Osteopath Magazine
