Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach
Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance
The Janda Approach
1st Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0736074007
US-based physical therapists Page, Frank, and Lardner present a practical text for clinicians treating patients with musculoskeletal complaints. Studying under the Czech neurologist and physiotherapist Vladimir Janda (1928-2002), all three authors learned Janda's unique approach to musculoskeletal medicine. In contrast to the traditional structural approach focusing on anatomy and biomechanics, Janda's functional approach emphasizes the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and in chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Combining theory, evidence, and applications, the text offers clinicians a systematic guide for incorporating Janda's methods into their practices. Coverage includes the scientific basis for Janda's approach to muscle imbalance, the functional evaluation of muscle imbalance, Janda's approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal syndromes, and the application of Janda's methods to specific body regions and complaints, including chronic neck and back pain, shoulder impingement, and anterior knee pain. Illustrated throughout with b&w photographs and diagrams. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Biomechanics: Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues
Biomechanics
Mechanical Properties of Living Tissues
Hardcover      ISBN: 0387979476
This classic book is accepted internationally as the standard treatment of the mechanical properties of biological fluids, solids, tissues and organs. It is used widely as both a reference and textbook in this rapidly-growing field. Biomechanics presents a general outline of the discipline, with applications to bioengineering, physiology, medicine and surgery. The second edition reflects the broad advances that have been made in this field during the past decade, and adds numerous new topics. References have been brought up to date, and the widely-praised emphasis on formulating and solving problems has been strengthened with numerous new problems. This book begins with a unique historical introduction to the field of biomechanics, followed by a vital chapter which relates the definitions and vocabulary of applied mechanics to biological tissues. These tools are then used to treat in detail the mechanical properties of blood, including blood cells and vessels. The remaining chapters discuss the viscoelastic properties of biological fluids and solids, as well as the mechanics of muscle, bone and connective tissue.
