    • Edited by: Shinichi Takabatake, Hideki Miyaguchi
    • ISBN978-4-89590-413-1

    “When I can’t see my limbs, my body movement is disrupted.” “I’m afraid to take a shower with my eyes closed.” “I can’t move my body when I’m rushed or harassed.”
    Generally, it is known that major symptoms for Parkinson’s disease are: resting tremor, rigidity, akinesia, and postual instability. However, the editors have brought out the fact that more unfamiliar symptoms have been observed for years while interacting with patients with Parkinson’s. This book offers epidemiology and treatment to expand our understanding of Parkinson’s disease, clinical symptoms and psychosomatic functional assessment with a companion DVD introducing dance moves which are effective against symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. By bringing a new point of view to understand and support patients with this disease, this book will be an invaluable resource for both patients and caregivers.

    It has been 6 years since the first edition, ID Stretching, sensationally introduced a new concept called the “Individual Muscle Stretching”. This edition is the latest version of ID Stretching created upon deep brainstorming. It is filled with highlights; the revised edition brushes up stretching skills, introduces pain controlling methods using diffuse noxious inhibitory controls (DNIC), and renews anatomical charts!! It is recommended also to the readers of the first edition, to double check on manual physical therapy, once again.

    This is a related title of ID Stretching in which patients themselves can carry out “Active ID Stretching” upon reading. The contents are twice as much as the ID Stretching, and more than 530 color photographs are shown in this text, making them clear to the eyes, just as watching moving pictures. This text is essential for physical therapists, judo therapists, sports trainers, and chiropractors who are already making use of ID Stretching, and for people who are searching for a stretching method based on scientific evidence.
