`Soft Tissue Release `is a clear, concise, and practical book that guides you in understanding and applying the three types of soft tissue release (STR): passive (clients do not help), active assisted (clients and therapists work together), and active (clients do it on their own).

Complete instructions explain how to apply STR to various parts of the body--the trunk, the lower limbs, and the upper limbs--and detail the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Numerous full-color photos depict the locks and stretches.The book also explains how to use alternative options--such as massage tools and forearms, fists, and elbows--to protect the hands and thumbs from overuse. Tips sidebars provide short, practical comments on applying the techniques, while Client Talk boxes share the author's experiences and provide insight on situations that a therapist is likely to encounter. Each chapter ends with Quick Questions to test knowledge of the information, and answers are provided at the end of the book. A quick-reference photo index allows readers to look up techniques based on the client's position--prone, supine, sitting, or side lying--and find the page number for the complete instructions for that technique.Finally, `Soft Tissue Release shows `how to incorporate the proper techniques into a treatment program. The book guides readers through the consultation process and provides examples of initial questions to ask clients and various assessment forms that therapists can use in identifying clients' needs. Using case studies and comparisons, the book shows how the data gleaned from clients can guide the design of an effective treatment program. `Soft Tissue Release` will help the STR techniques come alive through its clear, detailed instruction and the numerous photos showing the techniques being applied by professionals. Whether you are a student or a professional, Soft Tissue Release will help you gain proficiency and confidence in these techniques.
