About the book:

"Complementary Therapies in Rehabilitation" was written and developed by therapists with various backgrounds who offer insightful descriptions and applications of alternative therapies. Each of the chapters provides the reader with the author's experience and expertise for an individual approach to help better understand the background, benefit and method used. This book should help explain the differences and benefits of these alternative therapies versus traditional medical interventions. It offers the essential background and historical development of these approaches to better understand their emerging value. As more and more therapists and their patients explore the possibilities of complementary medicine, "Complementary Therapies in Rehabilitation" opens the door to explaining the impact of these concepts. Examples of approaches described include T'ai Chi, Myofascial Therapy, Yoga and Rolfing. Each chapter offers a basic description of how the concepts are employed into practice by the author as complementary to traditional therapy. Carol M. Davis has invited several experts to provide the reader with knowledge of the value and impact that these approaches have on their patients. This text focuses on the importance of therapeutic presence, including wholism, energy and the mind/body connection and how these concepts can be used to enhance rehabilitation practice such as exercise, mobilization, prevention and the use of physical agents. A primary goal of this book is to help the reader become more familiar with these approaches, and recognize their therapeutic value for the patient.
