The Malalignment Syndrome describes a newly recognised syndrome that commonly occurs in patients seen by physicians, chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and veterinarians. Although the symptoms are familiar to those working in the field they are often treated independently and their collective cause goes unrecognised. In this book the author presents the evidence for looking at the group of symptoms involved and treating them as a single syndrome with a single cause - biomechanical malignment. First book on this important subject Presents a new syndrome and supports it with the evidence Highly illustrated Written by a highly respected sports physician who has also been a national calibre athlete Recognises the importance of prevention as well as treatment Provides practical advice and guidance to all clinicians and therapists confronted with this problem as well as to the patients and athletes themselves.
