Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction and Piriformis Syndrome: The Complete Guide for Physical Therapists
This complete guide to treating patients with sacroiliac joint dysfunction, or piriformis syndrome, combines multiple techniques—rather than the usual single approach—to get quicker and more resilient results. Focusing on the practical application of skills acquired in twenty years of treating elite athletes, Paula Clayton provides a comprehensive guide to the latest discussions of the therapeutic handling of fascial tissue, dry needling, instrument-assisted soft-tissue manipulation, and dynamic taping. Presenting material formerly unavailable in one volume, this book provides evidence-based information on fundamental principles that enable practitioners to map approaches to dysfunction and injury before attempting hands-on treatments. Superbly designed for ease of use and supported with full-color illustrations that clarify and complement the text, this book puts decades of experience and research at readers' fingertips, expanding their ability to both improve their practice and educate their patients.
