Therapeutic Exercise for Lumbopelvic Stabilization

A Motor Control Approach for the Treatment and Prevention of Low Back Pain

This book presents the latest information and research on the prevention and management of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It introduces the reader to an approach to clinical management and prevention based on that research. This text's impressively thorough coverage makes it an indispensable text for both researchers and clinicians in the field of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
