in small improvements in performance.Part III, Intervention of Underrecovery,‚ÄĚ focuses on the significance of correct competitive scheduling & training sequencing, which together underscore the processes leading to optimal performance. Emotional & mental factors in underrecovery & overtraining are also discussed.Part IV, Transfer to Related Areas,‚ÄĚ examines the relationship between recovery & both physical & psychological health. The importance of attitudes, beliefs, & perceptions ar
e also addressed.Addressing recovery as a key factor of performance, the text illustrates how a constant lack of recovery can result in overtraining in athletes you work with. Further, it shows how being even slightly underrecovered over an extended period results in underperformance in athletes & nonathletes alike. Enhancing Recovery: Preventing Underperformance in Athletes is a critical resource for anyone researching or practicing in the exercise science field.author: Page, Phillip Pages: 312
SHK01513 Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance:The Janda Approach Editorial Review:
Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach blends postural techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities in order to alleviate chronic musculoskeletal pain and promote greater functionality. Developed by Vladimir Janda, respected neurologist and physiotherapist , the Janda approach presents a unique perspective to rehabilitation. In contrast to a more traditional structural view, the Janda approach is functional‚ÄĒemphasizing the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes from sports and general activities. Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach is the only text to offer practical, evidence-based application of Janda‚Äôs theories.
Filled with illustrations, photos, and step-by-step instructions, Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance uses a systematic approach in presenting information that can be used in tandem with other clinical techniques. This resource for practitioners features the following tools:
--A rationale for rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal sytem based on the relationship between the central nervous system and the motor system --A systematic method for the functional examination of the muscular system --Treatment processes focusing on the triad of normalization of peripheral structures, restoration of muscle balance, and facilitation of afferent systems and sensorimotor training --The role of muscle imbalance and functional pathology of sensorimotor systems for specific pain complaints, including cervical pain syndrome, upper- and lower-extremity pain syndromes, and low back pain syndromes
Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance provides an evidence-based explanation of muscle imbalance. The step-by-step Janda system of evaluation is explained‚ÄĒincluding analysis of posture, balance, and gait; evaluation of movement patterns; testing of muscle length; and assessment of the soft tissue. The text explores treatment options for muscle imbalance through facilitation and inhibition techniques and sensorimotor training to restore neuromsucular function. It also includes four case studies examining musculoskeletal conditions and showing how the Janda approach compares with other treatments. This text combines theory, evidence, and applications to assist clinicians in implementing the Janda approach into their practice.
Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach focuses on the neurological aspects of muscle imbalance that are common causes of pain and dysfunction in sports and occupational activities. By distilling the scientific works of Vladimir Janda into a practical, systematic approach, this unique resource will assist health care providers in treating patients with musculoskeletal complaints as well as exercise professionals in developing appropriate exercise prescription and training programs.
