Massage World (Muscle Energy Techniques: A Practical Guide for Physical Therapists)
John Gibbon’s new book Muscle Energy Techniques is relevant for anyone with an interest in physical therapy, and particularly those looking to expand and hone their skills. The book breaks down theory and practice of increasingly popular METs, which are unique in their application, as the patient provides the initial effort and the practitioner simply helps facilitate the process. The book covers such topics as the theory of muscle energy techniques, muscle imbalances, core muscle relationships, and specific testing for muscle weakness. The book is excellently illustrated, which will help make understanding in-depth concepts a walk in the park rather than a work out.
