Did you know that the Mesoamerican civilization used acupuncture? Or that Da Vinci discovered the eddy currents around the aortic valve? While these may seem like mere trivia, the truth is that even in the medical field, history matters. In fact, we still use some of ancient Egypt's assessment and treatment techniques in physiotherapy and orthopedics today. Combining the history of various exercise methodologies, including yoga, tai chi, qigong, and Pilates, with current research and clinical experience, author and physiotherapist Alex Daulat provides a unique guide that builds on the past in order to find the best way forward. A specialist in musculoskeletal conditions, he offers special insight into exercise treatments that empower patients to self-manage their back pain.
