AppleMarkPhilipp Richter / Eric Hebgen

Different patients with the same lesion pattern that you encounter over and over? Fact or imagination? And which concept offers the correct solution here? 

In this book, you will get to know the different concepts of muscle chains. After analyzing the development of static dysfunctions, their evaluation follows:  Which role do the individual concepts play in daily clinical practice in osteopathy and manual therapy? You will find the answer here. Frequently, the muscles are overlooked as the cause of pain. In cases with pain in the locomotor system, though, muscles and existing trigger points are often involved.

Anatomical charts combined with numerous photographs facilitate the exact localization of trigger points and their associated pain area. A handbook for trigger point therapy and muscle chains - perfect as a quick reference work in your daily practice.
