Review: Stability, Sport, and Performance Movement – Great Technique without Injury
Recently, a triathlete I’m currently working with told about a book called Stability, Sport, and Performance Movement: Great Technique without Injury by Joanne Elphinston that he’s been using to successfully help him overcome a number of long standing injury issues.
I’m always on the look-out for good resources, so I logged onto Amazon as soon as I got home and purchased a copy!
This has to be one of the best and most comprehensive books I’ve read in a long time on the subject of functional stability and movement dysfunction. Not because it contains any particularly groundbreaking theory, but because of the logical and easy to follow way in which it presents the information. There’s a good balance of theoretical information and practical examples, case studies and exercises with great descriptions, instructions and tips.
Most importantly, it’s presented in such a way that while concise and technically superb, you don’t need an MSc in Physiotherapy to understand and implement the advice provided!
As anybody who has worked with me will know, I put a great emphasis on technique, no matter what the exercise. This emphasis is mirrored in the approach used by the author.
I’d definitely recommend this as a book worth reading if you’re interested in learning more functional stability and movement dysfunction in the athletic population.
