Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques, Volume 2 - The Lower Body, is a highly illustrated volume of more than 600 pages. Almost 500 illustrations, with over 400 in two-colours, support the text throughout and make the anatomy and associated techniques easier to understand. The book covers MET (muscle energy techniques), NMT (neuromuscular techniques), PR (positional release) and many other bodywork techniques used in the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders. The text has a regional, joint by joint structure, and the same sequence of headings is used for each joint, making the text easy to dip into. The unique feature of the book is that it describes the normal anatomy and physiology as well as the dysfunctions that may arise, giving a detailed evaluation and description of clinically important aspects of functional anatomy and physiology. Indications for treatments and guidance on making the appropriate treatment choice are given. Palpation methods are evaluated. The different NMT techniques are then described in relation to the joint anatomy involved, which include not only manual techniques but also acupuncture, hydrotherapies and nutritional support as well as guidance for the patient in the use of self-help approaches. Practical neuromuscular solutions are described in great detail for the treatment of somatic pain and dysfunction together with an eclectic selection of associated manual modalities.

The book discusses theories and physiology relevant to the manual treatment of chronic pain, especially as it relates to the soft tissues of the lower body. Step-by-step protocols that address each muscle of a region and a regional approach to treatment are features that make this book unique. A structural review of each region, including ligaments and functional anatomy, adds value for new students and practitioners alike.
