Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lowe is an excellent practitioner/writer with sound credentials. I can heartily recommend his approach to therapeutic massage which is scientific and orthopedically grounded."
- Leon Chaitow, osteopathic practitioner, author and teacher

"What makes Whitney's work stand out is his ability to communicate the complete picture. He emphasizes the effects of the treatment in order to understand why the therapist should use it appropriately. This style and purpose is unique. This book is an absolute must!!!"
- Nancy Dail, Director/Owner of Downeast School of Massage, author and teacher, Maine USA

"Mr. Lowe's unquestioned integrity and public profile will only add to the success of this project. The author is a recognized authority on orthopedic testing."
- Robert K. King, Head of the Chicago School of Massage Therapy, Chicago, USA

Format: Paperback
Whitney Lowe defined orthopedic massage as a broad spectrum of techniques and approaches to treat soft-tissue dysfunction. And this is the main objective of this book to present symptoms of soft-tissue dysfunction and injuries, the cause and the treatment. The massage techniques used is an integration of trigger point, myofascial, deep transverse friction, and muscle energy techniques. This book is divided into two sections: the general principles, and regional approach to pathology and treatment. The first part run through the general principles the soft tissue injuries, specific massage techniques and its physiological effects. The regional approach describes the pathology of injuries to specific parts of the body. Each type of injuries is systematically described under the following heading: description, treatment, and cautions and contraindications. This is not only a bible of injuries, but also contains useful soft tissue manipulation. Chapter 13 summarize injuries which are not specific to a part of the body but can be more 'general' such as muscle strains, ligament sprains, forward head posture etc. This is a very useful reference for massage therapist

I am a licensed massage therapist with a fair amount of advanced training. Certain books, videos, and workshops--such as Art Riggs Deep Tissue Massage book and video series, James Waslaski's Orthopedic Massage workshop series, and the CORE Institute's Sports Massage and Myofascial Therapy workshops--have been instrumental in shaping my practice. I am now studying with Whitney Lowe. His books and recently launched continuing education e-course(s) are enabling me to deepen my understanding of orthopedic massage and to feel more confident in my ability to recognize and treat pathology (as well as to know when a referral is the most appropriate treatment). Lowe's books and training emphasize understanding kinesiology as applied to pain conditions, selecting massage techniques based upon physiological principles (the focus of this text), and using appropriate assessments related to specific pathologies (the focus of his new text, Orthopedic Assessment in Massage Therapy). Lowe is not only an accomplished therapist and author, he is also an incredible educator who makes himself accessible to students as their learning progresses. I am grateful for the opportunity to study with him, as I believe his work enables us to become better therapists, ultimately enhancing the reputation of therapeutic massage as a viable health care option.

I learned of this book through my massage school (The Lauterstein Conway School of Massage rocks!) though it was not one of our required text books. During classes I noticed some of the instructors used it as a reference so I asked about it. and then bought a copy. It is extremely helpful with great pictures and easy to follow. If you have had any massage instruction it is very easy to read. I hope the school decides to make this book one of their required texts.

This book was a great resource for my class on orthopedic massage at Cortiva Institute. I like the way she divides the book into areas of the body. Muscles are reviewed, assessments explained, cautions pointed out and treatments suggested. Homework for clients is also suggested. I highly recommend this book for someone entering the field of massage therapy.

I think this is a great book to review when a client calls in to make an appointment with a specific request. It is hard to remember everything and having this book in my office to review helps me to best help my clients.

I chose this rating because it is very professional. I liked it because it is very through and on point. I would recommend this book for all interested in working in sports massage.
