"A 'functional approach' to pathophysiology fosters understanding of the inter-relationship between body systems and human function. Clients are concerned about how a disorder affects their quality of life and ability to function. My goal for this book is to guide readers to use clinical reasoning to create client-specific, outcome-based massage treatment plans from this vital information--signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and client functional concerns."--Virginia S. Cowen, PhD, LMT, RYT, CSCS
