Evan Osar's excellent text should be present on the bookshelves of all chiropractors interested in learning more about movement patterns of the hip and shoulder complexes and how these impact on the rest of the musculoskeletal system. In a well-illustrated, clearly set-out format Corrective Exercise Solutions comprehensively describes practical and realistic methods of assisting everyday patients to gain higher levels of biomechanical and physical functioning. In his introduction, Osar sets out what he feels is one of the fundamental problems leading to increased levels of disability and disease in society: the sedentary lifestyles that dominate western society, both at work and at home. A lack of mobility, coupled with a poor diet, high stress and poor sleep pattern, he says, make rigorous fitness regimes potentially problematic in the absence of proper training on movement patterns. Three principles underpinning the design of the book are education, empathy and empowerment. Osar stresses the fact that only a tiny proportion of patients will be elite athletes; as such, this book is not aimed at high-end sports performance but for common movement patterns that lead to chronic, repetitive biomechanical dysfunction across a wide range of fitness levels. Working with patients with a range of conditions, I found that this book had real practical application. --Richard Brown, DC, LL.M, FEAC, BackSpace - Newsletter of the European Chiropractors' Union
Dr. Osar has the unique ability to blend the worlds of rehabilitation and performance that so few can bridge. This book absolutely spans the gap that every strength coach, personal trainer and sports medicine professional should be striving to understand. --Mike Robertson, Robertson Training Systems
It is clear that Dr. Osar has beautifully blended many years of personal practice and study under many of the best in the fields of manual medicine. --Dr. Shawn Allen, co-founder of The Gait Guys
Descripción del producto
Dysfunctions of the movement system are at the core of most cases of musculoskeletal injury, including but not limited to degenerative joint conditions, impingement syndromes and chronic myofascial and joint pain. These movement impairments result in repetitive and cumulative microtraumas that affect individuals in their occupations and everyday activities, as well as in their attempts to be more physically active.
Full of color photographs illustrating precise assessments, corrective strategies and functional progressions, author Evan Osar demonstrates how the fitness professional or clinician can apply the three principles of human movement--respiration, centration and integration--to improve common movement dysfunctions of the hip and shoulder.
This valuable resource presents:
The three reasons why clients develop faulty movement patterns, so the fitness professional or clinician can understand and explain the mechanisms behind their clients' hip and shoulder dysfunctions.
The concepts and strategies, including real-world and clinical applications, of the corrective exercise and integrative movement approach to common movement dysfunctions of the hip and shoulder, so the fitness professional or clinician has both the strategies and the tools to address their clients' hip and shoulder dysfunctions.
An easy-to-implement, principle-based solution to common movement dysfunction of the hip and shoulder, so the fitness professional or clinician can expand the expertise as a movement specialist and become a part of the solution to the health care crisis.
