The Sensitive Nervous System
The Sensitive Nervous System updates and integrates the growing science of neurodynamics. Physical examination of the nervous system is carefully illustrated and explained. Management strategies are underpinned by cutting edge neurobiology and evidence-based medicine.
The years since the publication of David Butler's Mobilisation of the Nervous System
(1991) has seen the rapid growth and influence of the powerful and linked forces of the neurobiological revolution, the evidence based movements, restless patients and clinicians. The Sensitive Nervous System calls for skilled combined physical and educational contributions to the management of acute and chronic pain states. It offers a 'big picture' approach using best evidence from basic sciences and outcomes data, with plenty of space for individual clinical expertise and wisdom.
The Sensitive Nervous System is accessibly written from a clinician's point of view to give clinicians a framework to engage in modern neurobiological advances of the 'decade of the brain'. The book presents novel techniques which are instantly applicable and will help you to listen to patients' stories and understand them better while integrating modern bio-psycho-social constructs.
