The Knee, Ankle and Foot Protocols By Dr Bruce Dewe, Joan Dewe
Paperback: $24.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The knee joint is an unstable, complex joint. Because there is no deep depression on the top of the tibia it is relatively easy for the tibia to slip out of the normal articular position. Shinsplints... More > is a colloquial term. People complaining of ‘shinsplints’ may have been given this ‘diagnosis’ for a range of conditions including tibial fracture, muscle tears and inflammation of the shin fascia. The energy model of K-Power® avoids this confusion. We balance the energy in this situation by using our reflex points and by attending to the emotions involved. Rupture of the achilles tendon is another common athletic injury. Complete rupture is usually treated with surgery followed by a long recovery period. By using K-Power® reflexes and attending to the emotional component of the injury (both before and after surgery) recovery time can be significantly reduced.< Less

Ships in 3-5 business days.
Clients rarely ask for help because of ‘imbalances in their muscle energy’ - rather they come complaining of pain, restricted movement, weakness, or a combination of these. The condition... More > may or may not be the result of an injury. Frequently they will have seen another practitioner who has given them anti-inflammatory medication, and sent them for physiotherapy or massage. The person may have had a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and now is shopping around for an alternative. The purpose of this workshop is to develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the 22 muscles of the shoulder girdle. We will not only work with the physical but with the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of shoulder problems. The expressions that clients use such as, “I’m shouldering my burdens” can be very significant clues to client management.< Less

At a time when policy makers are increasingly interested in shared decision making, this book tells the story of how to deliver tools created to help patients make better informed decisions. The... More > real-world cases in this book, describe how pioneers from the US and UK introduced tools designed to help patients become well informed about tough decisions. They describe efforts to get the tools integrated into healthcare systems, sometimes with success, but often in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. To better understand the challenges, each case in this book is reviewed through the lens of three different perspectives: Relational Coordination Theory presented by Jody Hoffer Gittell; Normalization Process Theory presented by Glyn Elwyn; and Microsystems presented by Marjorie M. Godfrey. In the last chapter, Glyn Elwyn writes a provocative analysis of the steps that might be needed to facilitate large-scale implementation.< Less

More > consequence, dynamically changing environments. When things go wrong at emergency scenes the casualty investigators often cite flaws in situational awareness. These findings have only limited value.

This book is a compilation of articles from the Situational Awareness Matters! website []. The site was launched in October 2011 and, as if this printing, has had over 2.5 million page views from first responders around the world. Consider visiting the site for additional information on the topics written about in this book and to glean new information based on science and investigation reports.< Less

More > Aesthetic and intellectual tastes shadow exactly in line with moral qualities, as bad taste is linked to silence side effect towards Volterra, the author forever of this tome of moderate fatness. Perhaps it may be possible one day to explain why Tarkovsky, who had made the best film in history (Ivan's C.) before making the best, "Andrei", could, having exhausted cinema there, have descended to the Antonioni idiom of "L'avventura" of "Solaris" (critic Lopate notes--'T. had seen Kubrick's "2001" and disliked it as cold and sterile. Unlike it, "Solaris" is saturated with grief ...even before it leaves Earth.') and the Fellini idiom of "8 1/2" of "The Mirror" to the Bergman he loved level of "The Sacrifice". Is psychology explainable?< Less
