"A Manual Therapist's Guide to Movement examines the use of non-traditional movement systems in a physical therapy setting, focusing on orthopedic conditions or injuries. Browne derives much of the content of this book from two sophisticated movement systems: the Feldenkrais Method and the Chinese martial art of Tai Chi. He explores the intersection between movement and medicine and explains some of the potential applications of these methods to orthopedic conditions in a language understandable to physical therapists and others with a medical, rather than a movement, background." "The unique style of this approach features reader participation in a series of movement lessons. These lessons start in chapter three and include a written verbal description, picture sequences to illustrate each movement variation and a breakdown and discussion of the lesson afterward. These discussions include descriptions and examples of principles of ideal movement, teaching technique, applications to a clinical setting, links to other similar lessons and descriptions of some possible variations of that lesson. In short, the reader experiences the movement subjectively then reads about the design of that particular lesson and for whom it might be useful."--Jacket.

Data is getting bigger and more complex by the day, and so are your choices in handling it. Explore some of the most cutting-edge databases available - from a traditional relational database to newer NoSQL approaches - and make informed decisions about challenging data storage problems. This is the only comprehensive guide to the world of NoSQL databases, with in-depth practical and conceptual introductions to seven different technologies: Redis, Neo4J, CouchDB, MongoDB, HBase, Postgres, and DynamoDB. This second edition includes a new chapter on DynamoDB and updated content for each chapter. While relational databases such as MySQL remain as relevant as ever, the alternative, NoSQL paradigm has opened up new horizons in performance and scalability and changed the way we approach data-centric problems. This book presents the essential concepts behind each database alongside hands-on examples that make each technology come alive. With each database, tackle a real-world problem that highlights the concepts and features that make it shine. Along the way, explore five database models - relational, key/value, columnar, document, and graph - from the perspective of challenges faced by real applications. Learn how MongoDB and CouchDB are strikingly different, make your applications faster with Redis and more connected with Neo4J, build a cluster of HBase servers using cloud services such as Amazon's Elastic MapReduce, and more. This new edition brings a brand new chapter on DynamoDB, updated code samples and exercises, and a more up-to-date account of each database's feature set. Whether you're a programmer building the next big thing, a data scientist seeking solutions to thorny problems, or a technology enthusiast venturing into new territory, you will find something to inspire you in this book. What You Need: You'll need a *nix shell (Mac OS or Linux preferred, Windows users will need Cygwin), Java 6 (or greater), and Ruby 1.8.7 (or greater). Each chapter will list the downloads required for that database.

Just 10 minutes of training per day can help you work towards unlocking your body’s full potential. Beginning with a basic squat (which we as children do naturally but then as adults struggle to perform), ‘The Flexible Body : Move better anywhere, anytime in 10 minutes a day’ guides you through a series of positions, stretches, rolls and balances that re-train your body to move like it once could. Forget everything you think you know about exercise. International model and fitness expert Roger Frampton has developed a revolutionary new approach to movement, designed to get your body working in the way it was designed to. We are born with perfect spines that can move in millions of ways. But our sedentary western lifestyles rob us of our natural range of motion and leave us with stiff bodies, bad posture and a high incidence of back pain. Inspired by advanced yoga practitioners and Olympic gymnasts, and in consultation with leading figures from both fields, Roger has developed a simple but highly effective set of exercises known as the Frampton Method, designed to de-restrict your body and help you reach optimum strength and flexibility with no need for any kind of equipment, weights or gym membership. Split into method and movement sections, the movement sections covers a range of positions from hip actions to headstands, and then explain how to take each movement to the next level as you become more advanced. With a thorough explanation of the philosophy and science behind the method, plus hacks for incorporating it into your day-to-day life, this book will inspire you to put down the weights, forget HIIT, reclaim your body and achieve a level of fitness you’ve only ever dreamed of.

In the late 1990s, treatment-related deaths or ''complications'' were the fifth leading cause of death for Americans. Yet healthcare practitioners decried attempts to standardize treatment. ''We're working with people, not cars, '' they said. The result: an epidemic of preventable mistakes in a medical landscape where patients wait for hours in ''emergency'' rooms, fill out the same paperwork at each visit, and increasingly run the risk of being dosed with the wrong medication or having the wrong limb amputated. These problems spurred a group of dedicated physicians like Paul Batalden and Don Berwick to study the concepts of ''quality improvement'' used at Toyota and NASA, and to dare to apply them to the practice of medicine. This book tells their story, and how these ''heretical'' ideas have blossomed into a movement, bringing the focus back to where it should have always been: the patient.

In this hands-on, practical book, Adam Wolf synthesizes his experiences in both the sports medicine and movement industries into a digestible, practical, and easy to understand introduction to integrated human movement while providing assessment and progression strategies along the way. REAL MOVEMENT is the first book to define true, integrated human motion, within the context of the latest motor control theory and apply it to real life patterns of movement. Whether you're a sports medicine or physical rehab professional, a corrective exercise or functional movement trainer, or just a movement enthusiast, this book is for you. The reader will gain an understanding that the site of injury typically isn't the cause of the injury and is often the result of something doing too much because something above or below isn't doing enough. With this in mind, the reader will explore specific ways to address these issues region-by-region. Throughout this book, Adam dives into understanding the interconnectedness of the body, within a framework where bones move, joints feel or perceive motion, and myofascia reacts to control the movement, all while being governed by the nervous system. REAL MOVEMENT's in-depth discussions include: * Qualities of integrated movement * Naming 3-D joint motion * Introduction to motor control theories * Current research on fascia and its influence on movement * Clinical considerations of the Lower Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Upper Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Thorax * Additional resources and readings lists at the end of each chapter * Detailed, accessible and easy to understand Exercise/Movement Library describing specific movements, exercises, progressions and regressions "We benefit from Adam's ability to synthesize the best approaches to a practical blend of techniques to create the most optimal environments for each individual" Dr. Gary Gray, PT, FAFS Founder of Applied Functional Science CEO, The Gray Institute "Anyone who has worked with Adam would initially characterize him as a "healer" and that would not remotely capture his brilliance. Adam is so much more than that, he intuitively understands that no modality, no method, nor procedure can outperform your body's ability to heal itself. Adam is a facilitator and teacher who guides his patients' intuitive abilities to heal themselves with a deep understanding between muscles, bones, nerves, tendons and spirit, and this book is a demonstration of that." Marc Davis 20 Year NBA Referee I read REAL Movement by Adam Wolf with great interest and excitement because of his integration of motor control and movement, a subject near and dear to me for the past 30 plus years. Those of us in the physical rehabilitation world must understand how the brain and the motor control system affect movement, as well as the roles of fascia, scars, kinetic chains and gait. The case studies demonstrate excellent clinical thinking, involving functional neurological assessments. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in the movement or rehab world David Weinstock Founder of NeuroKinetic Therapy "REAL Movement is the real deal! A marvelous perspective on human motion that will change your view of movement" Dr. Perry Nickelston, DC, NKT, SFMA Founder, Stop Chasing Pain

Published in France in 1987, this is the book in which Lecoq first set out his philosophy of human movement, and the way it takes expressive form in a wide range of different performance traditions. He traces the history of pantomime, sets out his definition of the components of the art of mime, and discusses the explosion of physical theatre in the second half of the twentieth century. Interviews with major theatre practitioners Ariane Mnouchkine and Jean-Louis Barrault by Jean Perret, together with chapters by Perret on Étienne Decroux and Marcel Marceau, fill out the historical material written by Lecoq, and a final section by Alain Gautré celebrates the many physical theatre practitioners working in the 1980s.
