Published Reviews

    Mark Comerford and Sarah Mottram are the founders of the Kinetic Control approach which is based on the premise that ‘uncontrolled movement’ or ‘movement faults’ can predispose people to musculoskeletal pain and disability. Their research has been widely published in the musculoskeletal literature and this is their first book. The aim of the text is to provide a clinical approach to the assessment and correction of movement faults...
    Overall the authors achieve their aim by providing an extremely detailed text which is well thought out, assimilates other relevant research into an assessment and treatment approach with high face validity in the area of movement dysfunction
    and management of musculoskeletal pain. The accessibility, sequential layout and logical development of complex concepts to a relatively advanced level provides enough for this book to be a valuable reference and clinical guide for students, experienced clinicians and teachers alike.
