Therapeutic Exercises in Functional Kinetics: Analysis and Instruction of Individually Adaptable Exercises
Susanne Klein-Vogelbach explains her concept of observation and analysis of human movement as a basis for functional movement therapy.
She first describes therapeutic exercises and manipulative techniques in "therapist language", and then translates them into "patient language". This helps therapists to instruct patients more successful by using appropriate terms. Exercises are described for functional training of the abdominal and back muscles, functional training of rotation about the long axes of the body and thighs, functional respiration training, and functional treatment of posture-related syndromes of the spine. In summary, this manual is an indispensable working tool for every therapist who wants to use the concept of functional kinetics.
