Outcome-Based Massage: Putting Evidence into Practice (3rd edition) goes beyond an update of the content of the second edition. In this book, Dr Andrade and a team of contributors who represent the fields of massage therapy, physical therapy, athletic training, education, psychology, and physiology take the student or practicing clinician to the next level of using Outcome-Based Massage in daily clinical practice. Starting with the premise that clinicians want to deliver massage techniques that are tailored to their clients’ individual needs and achieve the desired outcomes, OBM 3 shows clinicians how to apply the principles of Outcome-Based Massage to the treatment of clinical conditions and wellness. It does so by providing a solid foundation of the principles of Outcome-Based Massage that encompasses the definition of OBM, how to find and use evidence, ethical and interpersonal issues in massage, how to identify impairments and wellness issues through the client examination, and the systematic OBM clinical decision-making process. OBM 3 then builds on this foundation by outlining the details of how clinicians can prepare themselves and their patients for treatment and how to perform a broad number of massage techniques that are appropriate for medical massage and wellness massage. Finally, it integrates this knowledge with chapters that show the clinician how to develop sequences of massage techniques, how to plan and progress interventions to achieve clinical outcomes with massage, and how to apply OBM principles and techniques to the treatment of common clinical conditions and wellness issues. The Quick Treatment Guides that provide anatomic and pathophysiologic references, key impairments and wellness goals, relevant examination techniques, and treatment suggestions for a selection of commonly encountered clinical conditions are an exciting new addition that will enable clinicians to quickly begin using OBM in daily practice. What’s New in the Third EditionNo chapter goes untouched in the Third Edition; every chapter of the book has been enhanced to make OBM an even more effective textbook and clinical reference for student and practicing clinicians alike. The theme of “Putting Evidence into Practice” emphasizes the evolution of Outcome-Based Massage and highlights strategies that clinicians can use for applying the principles of OBM into their day-to-day care for clients with clinical conditions and wellness issues. A broader multidisciplinary approach to Outcome-Based Massage is the result of the collaboration of Dr Andrade and a team of contributors who represent the fields of massage therapy, physical therapy, athletic training, education, psychology, and physiology. In keeping with the book’s theme of putting evidence into practice, chapters are organized into separate sections on evidence and practice, then evidence and practice are integrated within the clinical case(s) in the Review Section.
