Description

Manual Therapy for the Prostate presents a comprehensive guide to the prostate that includes manual treatment procedures designed to resolve common prostate issues. Based on author Jean-Pierre Barral's clinical practice and his innovative theory of visceral manipulation, the book provides a structured framework rooted in anatomy and physiology. By precisely applying manual techniques to the prostate and surrounding structures, practitioners can successfully treat prostate problems and help patients avoid surgical procedures or medication.

Featuring detailed, full-color anatomy illustrations throughout, the book begins with a discussion of the anatomical structure and function of the prostate. Causes of prostate dysfunction are revealed, including predisposing factors such as age, ethnicity, stress level, diet, and tobacco and alcohol usage. The book explores the signs, symptoms, prevention, and allopathic treatments for disease and dysfunction of the prostate. Examination and manual treatment protocols, contraindications and precautions, and the various goals the practitioner is working to achieve are clearly described. Explaining how all pelvic structures have links with the rest of the body, the book concludes by demonstrating how the entire body is interconnected and elucidating the influence of stress and emotional issues in prostate dysfunction.
