Where to Buy Description In this volume, each assessment and treatment technique is clearly illustrated showing patient positioning, stabilization of the patient and therapist hand placement. It also contains an expanded description of objectives, advanced techniques and grades of translatoric movement. Progression from a test maneuver to a mobilization technique is clearly demonstrated. The updated 7th edition presents many clarifications for ease of learning, and also includes access to a video download of the techniques with more than video clips.

Where to Buy Description This volume focuses on the underlying biomechanics and fundamentals of thrust and non-thrust manual joint treatment techniques for the extremity joints. The techniques were carefully selected to be safe in the hands of beginning students. Advanced mobilization progressions outside the resting position include guidelines for how and when it is safe to move toward and into the limit of movement restriction.
Photographs illustrate both basic and alternate grips and the use of wedges, fixation straps and mobilization straps. Includes companion DVD that features short video clips no audio. Written by Freddy Kaltenborn. About this book I wrote this book in the belief that manual joint evaluation, mobilization, and manipulation skills are important for all practitioners of orthopedic medicine and manipulative therapy, and that hands-on training should begin early in entry-level professional educational programs.
This textbook introduces manual extremity joint evaluation, mobilization, and manipulation techniques with an emphasis on the application of biomechanical principles. These books are also useful for practitioners who did not receive OMT Nordic System training during their professional education and must now learn these basic skills through continuing education courses and residencies. In this edition I revisit the concept to clarify its use and misuse.
The 8th edition has been updated with an introduction to manipulative thrust techniques, both in theory and practice, in addition to conventional non-thrust mobilization techniques. I refined and developed these thrust techniques over decades of practice and believes them to be the safest way for student practitioners to develop manipulative skill. Teachers of Kaltenborn-Evjenth OMT may notice subtle differences in grip and patient positioning compared with previous editions.
These should be considered additional options for delivery of the technique rather than a replacement method, keeping in mind that grip and body position change depending on the momentary needs of both patient and practitioner.
