This clinical textbook will update the reader on the relevant anatomy, known biomechanics,
clinical assessment, musculoskeletal conditions and treatment of the thorax and
how these relate to the function of the whole body.
An integrated biopsychosocial model (the Integrated Systems Model – ISM)
will be highlighted in this text and used as a foundation for clinicians to
organize their knowledge from multiple sources.
The text emphasizes the current suggestion from the evidence that treatment
be individualized and that clinical reasoning form the basis for treatment decisions.
Richly illustrated with 3D-rendered colour anatomical drawings, and over 250 clinical photographs,
this will be the definitive manual on the thorax for all bodyworkers helping patients improve mobility and control of the trunk.
