I see flat surfaces that allow a natural contact with the foot. I think this qualitative position of the foot allows for the closed chain to begin with stability. But I found it to be quite humorous to probably be able to pick off the parts of the book that were his domain. These sections I think really drew away from the overall quality of the book and sent a mixed message of isolated and impairment-based movements in a world of movement-based training and rehab.
Assessment and Treatment does not go over PRRT, but it was very excited to be reminded of this technique. They have a Home Study course that I may try sooner than later. What was troublesome was the unfortunate poor dissemination of information regarding WBV itself.
Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach blends postural techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities in order to alleviate. Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach. P Page, C Frank, R Lardner, editors. Human Kinetics: Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Maybe it was just supposed to be a mention or teaser like PRRT was, but certainly this is a topic I feel confident in and wanted to see more, especially since I think it has a useful role in this whole approach. For fitness folks, there is not much of a need to go beyond certain chapters. And Janda started this stuff back in Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I agree, it was a good book that brought some good things to the table.
Of particular interest to me was PRRT.
It seems like it may be an excellent addition to the PT arsenal, particularly if it is capable of reducing pain as well as they suggest. Great review, Charlie — I was glad to read a more thoughtful perspective on unstable surface training.
I have a question as it relates to the Core Pendulum theory: Can the ground be used to create synthetic stability? Looking forward to your UST thoughts. Joe — I need to review the SMT-specific goals more, but this type of unstable surface training I believe is geared towards exactly what you are saying, but not necessarily from a pedal goal, but a whole-body goal. It may be an access point to pure regional interdependence.
Connect with Us. Causes of muscle weakness. Chapters are divided into four parts filled with illustrations, photos, and step-by-step instructions. His knowl-edge and passion helped transform our own clinical practice and gave us the ability to share his teachings with others.

I think single leg hops and bounds really shed the most insight of what levels of torque the ankle and foot can handle. Polish boxes are great ways to challenge the foot without getting into artificial loads and angles. Hi Charlie, Phil Page here. Thanks for the review of our textbook. All 3 of us simply shared what we use on a daily basis with patients in the clinic.
Janda was a great proponent of low-cost rehabilitation devices such as elastic bands and balance pads. Hi, Phil. Thank you for reading and posting. In the production of such an excellent book that was in need of publishing, it is just so frustrating to see highlighting of methods that allow poor clinicians to be reaffirmed in their lazy and mediocre techniques.
This is human nature, and I wish, in all avenues and media, we did not have these speedbumps in growth and development. Woah this weblog is wonderful i love reading your articles.
Keep up the good paintings! You realize, a lot of individuals are looking around for this info, you could help them greatly. Great review of this book. Just recently finished this a few months ago and am very interested in taking DNS courses. I was curious if you ever ended up taking the PRRT courses and what you thought of them? The Janda Approach I think this article is best at describing and illustrating the Upper and Lower Crossed Syndromes and the tonic and phasic muscles of the body.

About this product Product Information "Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach" blends postural techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities in order to alleviate chronic musculoskeletal pain and promote greater functionality. Developed by Vladimir Janda, respected neurologist and physiotherapist, the Janda approach presents a unique perspective to rehabilitation. In contrast to a more traditional structural view, the Janda approach is functional--emphasizing the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes from sports and general activities.
Filled with illustrations, photos, and step-by-step instructions, "Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance" uses a systematic approach in presenting information that can be used in tandem with other clinical techniques. This resource for practitioners features the following tools: --A rationale for rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal sytem based on the relationship between the central nervous system and the motor system --A systematic method for the functional examination of the muscular system --Treatment processes focusing on the triad of normalization of peripheral structures, restoration of muscle balance, and facilitation of afferent systems and sensorimotor training --The role of muscle imbalance and functional pathology of sensorimotor systems for specific pain complaints, including cervical pain syndrome, upper- and lower-extremity pain syndromes, and low back pain syndromes "Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance" provides an evidence-based explanation of muscle imbalance.
The step-by-step Janda system of evaluation is explained--including analysis of posture, balance, and gait; evaluation of movement patterns; testing of muscle length; and assessment of the soft tissue.
The text explores treatment options for muscle imbalance through facilitation and inhibition techniques and sensorimotor training to restore neuromsucular function. It also includes four case studies examining musculoskeletal conditions and showing how the Janda approach compares with other treatments. This text combines theory, evidence, and applications to assist clinicians in implementing the Janda approach into their practice. By distilling the scientific works of Vladimir Janda into a practical, systematic approach, this unique resource will assist health care providers in treating patients with musculoskeletal complaints as well as exercise professionals in developing appropriate exercise prescription and training programs.
