    schema:description "Written for students and practitioners of massage therapy, physical therapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, sports medicine, athletic training and fitness instruction, Postural Assessment is a guide to determining muscular or fascial imbalance and whether that imbalance contributes to a patient's or client's pain or dysfunction. In Postural Assessment, Jane Johnson, a practicing physiotherapist and sport massage therapist and instructor, breaks down the complex and holistic process of assessing posture into easy-to-assimilate sections. Johnson begins with a discussion of ideal posture and the factors affecting posture as well as how to provide the correct environment for postural assessment, necessary equipment and the importance of documenting assessment findings. She then provides step-by-step information on executing postural assessments from standing posterior, lateral and anterior views as well as with the patient or client in a seated position. Information in the text is enhanced with detailed illustrations, offering visual cues to learning postural assessment and identifying anatomical relationships. Line drawings illustrate bony landmarks used in the assessments, and numerous photos show both obvious and subtle postural variations. Reproducible illustrated postural assessment charts in the appendix provide space for recoding observations during each step of the assessment. Postural Assessment is part of the Hands-On Guides for Therapists series, which features tools for assessment and treatment that fall well within the realm of message therapists and are useful for other bodyworkers, such as osteopaths and fitness instructors. -- from back cover."@en ;
