Synopsis

Muscle Energy Techniques by Leon Chaitow

This book describes the basis and practice of MET ie those manipulative techniques in which a patient, on request, actively uses his or her muscles from a controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counterforce applied by the practitioner. This is now a widely recognised approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction. It combines methods used in physical therapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and manual medicine. The text provides a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of the techniques. The DVD-ROM includes video clips to demonstrate the application of the techniques and so supports and supplements the text.

Reviews

I'm rather taken with the new edition of this book. Dr. Chaitow has gathered well known experts from several disciplines and has crafted a book that will be used by all of them. A great deal of care has gone into this book. There is a wealth of clinical information and a very good overview of research regarding the use of MET in managing a range of conditions and clinical situations. The focus on other disciplines is a great plus in this new edition. I recommend it.

Weighted Numerical Score 95 - 4 Stars!

By: Dana J. Lawrence, DC of Doody's Book Reviews

This book does not disappoint. Everything you ever wanted to know about [MET's] is contained within these pages. The format is very user friendly and the book is littered with clinically relevant ideas and techniques. It is sure to help enhance your practice.
