I am a massage therapist and I also teach Sports Massage. Students don't escape my class without having the virtues of this book emblazoned upon their memories by dint of relentless repetition on my part. If you're interested in knowing what's going on with your clients' musculo-skeletal systems, you need to buy this book and use it. It discusses many and diverse disorders you will probably see in your practice; giving a description of the characteristics of the disorder, assessment information and suggested treatments. The charts and tables alone are worth the cover price. You will be more effective as a massage therapist, whatever your modality, with the information in Functional Assessment.

I have not read this book cover to cover yet, but it is an excellent resource for functional assessment. It is organized in an easy to follow and understand format, and easy to understand language - medical terms are clearly defined where they are presented, and the author has no need to "impress" his readers with unnecessarily complicated anatomical vocabulary. The treatment suggestions are brief and miminal, but it is a book about functional assessment. I would have liked the author to recommend a companion book on treatment of the conditions he covered.
I highly recommend this book to any serious massage therapist or similar bodyworker.
V. Hawse, massage therapist and massage instructor

Before you buy this book, please know that Lowe rewrote this text completely and republished it as, Orthopedic Assessment in Massage Therapy. This new text has a lot more new research, contemporary takes on injury conditions, is expanded and includes a whole lot more information. Also, any changes in scientific understandings have been corrected. In addition, the text is easier to read and navigate, and is more organized. In sum, it is just a way better text. If you have the Orthopedic Assessment text and then buy this one, you will be disappointed. You will have paid twice for pretty much the same content.

Amazon has listed this book as out of print and customers risk spending far more money than the $29.95 cost of the book. Please contact OMERI for sales information and amazon to let them know they can still buy this seminal text for massage therapists.

This book is a great tool for Massage Therapist. The information is clear and easily understood. Helps take the guesswork out of assessment of certain conditions.
I highly urge anyone that does therapeutic massage to own one.
