Tendons and ligaments are receiving heightened attention recently due to a drastic increase in repetitive strain-overuse injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Such injuries number in the millions every year, and hundreds of thousands of these are serious and chronic in nature. All too often, the standard medical system offers little hope of recovery without surgery, which has mixed results. Many patients find little information or relief from either standard or alternative treatments, and despair of achieving recovery. Weintraub's book offers a viable option. Combining emerging scientific information and the author's original osteopathic-style treatment model drawn from his 28 years of hands-on therapy, it gives readers a clear understanding of the surprisingly dynamic nature of tendons and ligaments from an excellent review of their structure, function, mechanics, injury, and healing processes. Expert photos and illustrations complement writing that is thorough, concise, and lucid. This revised edition has been substantially expanded (over one third of the material has been added or revised). An in-depth self-help chapter contains rehabilitation and exercise guidance. This includes a set of guidelines for four stages of progressive recovery from onset of injury to full health. There is a section of specific advice for people with sports injuries. Overall, the book offers a positive direction for people involved in their own recovery.
