Engaging A&P textbook written specifically for the manual therapy student. Applied Anatomy & Physiology for Manual Therapists explores everything manual therapy students need to know about anatomy and physiology (A&P) - in ways they
can easily understand and apply to their hands-on work. This uniquely relevant textbook contains a wealth of detailed A&P information, including the benefits, effects, indications, and contraindications of specific forms of manual therapy. Each chapter contains special features that challenge and engage manual therapy students who might otherwise struggle with retaining A&P knowledge from classroom to clinic:
* Manual Therapy Applications highlight A&P topics most relevant to students' future profession.
* Pathology Alerts describe common conditions manual therapists encounter, ways the body systems respond, and a practitioner's role in navigating the best course of action.
* BTW Boxes contain intriguing A&P facts that deepen students' understanding of the human body.
* â€œWhat Do You Think?â€ questions bridge the gaps between A&P concepts and the actual practice of manual therapies.
