Release Your Pain: Resolving Repetitive Strain Injuries with Active Release Techniques
Brian Abelson | ISBN:1556435568 | 1st Edition | 2005 | PDF | 240 pages | 8 MB
Release Your Pain presents ART (Active Release Techniques) as a new approach to addressing such common repetitive strain injuries as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, knee and shoulder injuries, and back pain. Based on case studies, the book shows how ART locates and breaks down scar tissue and adhesions that cause pain, stiffness, weakness, numbness, and physical dysfunctions associated with repetitive strain injuries. Topics include how and why these injuries occur, which treatments to avoid when possible (including surgery), and how noninvasive methods succeed where others fail. Each chapter includes black and white photo sequences of therapy techniques and stretches.
