A Guide to Better Movement offers a clear and practical look at emerging science related to the brain's role in movement and pain. It is written for movement professionals, athletes, chronic pain sufferers, and anyone else interested in moving better and feeing better.

In it, you will learn: the essential qualities of movements that are healthy and efficient; why good movement requires healthy "maps" in the brain; why pain is sometimes more about self-perception than tissue damage or injury; the science behind mind-body practices; general principles that can be used to improve any movement practice; and 25 illustrated and simple movement lessons to help you move better and feel better.

Todd Hargrove is a bodyworker, movement teacher and writer living in Seattle, Washington. An athlete all his life, Todd has been a competitive tennis player and squash player, and not so competitive soccer player.

Inspired by his own success and interest in chronic pain and movement, he quit the law to become a Rolfer and Feldenkrais Practitioner. In 2008, Todd started a popular blog to correct common misconceptions regarding pain, and promote greater awareness of recent developments in science emphasizing the role of the brain in pain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ausgezeichnet geschrieben und sehr informativ 6. Juni 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Folge schon eine Weile Todd Hargroves bettermovement-blog, der auch sehr empfehlenswert ist und der hier in gewisser Weise aufgearbeitet und erweitert ist. Dieses Buch bietet eine hervorragende Zusammenfassung des heutige Wissenstandes im Bereich von Bewegung und Neuroplastizität.
Sehr cool auch immer die bündige Zusammenfassung am Ende jeden Kapitels. Gute Englisch-kenntnisse sind Vorraussetzung, aber dann lohnt es sich auf jeden Fall! für Bewegungs-, Körper- und Feldenkraisinteressierte.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 7. Juni 2014
Von jamie phillip hale - Veröffentlicht auf
After reading the content at Hargrove's website I was impressed. When I found out he was writing a book I was excited. Once I purchased, and started reading the book I had a hard time putting it down. I spent the entire day reading it. Page 1. "The focus of this book is on the nervous system- how it controls the way we move and feel. One major theme is that it has far more influence on strength, speed, flexibility, endurance, pain and coordination that you might imagine." Todd does a great job providing information on the nervous system's role in movement. Chapter 9- Lessons In Better Movement- illustrates 25 lessons that may help readers improve movement and perception. Hargrove cites pioneering research from some of the world's lead scientists, and writes in an easy to follow format. The book is a good read for the general public and professional. This book rates as one of my favorite all time reads on movement.

Many cognitive scientists, after reading Stanovich's- How To Think Straight About Psychology- say they wish they had written that book. I bet many movement specialists will say they wish they had written- A Guide To Better Movement: The Science and Practice of Moving With More Skill And Less Pain- after reading it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is an absolute must have for every movement professional 15. Juni 2014
Von Leonard H Van Gelder - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Todd has accomplished an incredible feat in his ability to elegantly describe a Neuromatrix centered approach to movement. This is the most well written integration of current research based evidence in a book I have ever seen. He connects the dots many of us have simply danced around in our journey to understanding the key role of the nervous system in movement. This book is not only accessible to the clinician, but also the client or patient. Every movement professional must own this book, it will become required reading and an instant classic in the future. In this era of academic inflation, where many textbooks contain minimal, frivolous content, with far less research evidence or proper critical appraisal, are marked up to insane margins; the entry point for the cost of this evidence based content is simply too good to be true. If you don’t buy this book, you are doing a disservice to your patients, and yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Destined to Become a Classic 13. Juli 2014
Von Knowledge Seeker - Veröffentlicht auf
This book without a doubt is destined to become a great classic on human movement! I literally could not put this book down! From the beginning to the end you can't help but wonder what am I going to learn on the very next page. Yes! it's that GOOD! Not only does Todd understand human movement but being able to move freely without pain is something he's passionate about. My first encounter with Todd's knowledge came from visiting his blog which lead to me being a faithful follower and supporter of his work and research. When he announced he was writing a book I highly anticipated its release! It's as if he couldn't get it completed fast enough! I say this because much of what's in the book Todd has discussed in his writings from his blog but the book goes much farther than just a compilation of his blog writings. The book is put together in a very logical and orderly format. There's 9 chapters choked full of easy to follow and understand information not based on just his opinion but based on some very solid and current research and data currently available today.

Whether you buy the e-book or the paperback the results are the same. Easy to follow format either way with concise explanations with superb analogies often given. I own both the paperback and the kindle edition. The paperback stays at home while I read the kindle edition on my lunch break at work and elsewhere when I am not at home.

I would easily say that this is the most important book on human movement in print today! With refreshing insights not offered in any other book I know of currently. I have been involved in the iron game for 35 years now and as of 3 years ago I transitioned to a more user friendly approach to movement and exercise which brought me to Todd's website which in turn lead to this amazing book!

My favorite parts of the book would have to be the parts on perception and pain. Another favorite is the summaries at the end of each chapter which is a really detailed snapshot of all the major points Todd emphasis so well throughout each chapter. The last chapter of the book gives detailed instructions are Lessons in Better Movement along with very clear pictures to help visualize the movement. There's 23 lessons that you can follow through for learning to improve your movement and perception. They are based on the Feldenkrais Method and are appropriate for people wanting to improve their movement without a coach or equipment.

In closing I would like to say thanks to Todd Hargrove for writing this book and making it available to the public. If I could only share one piece of valuable advice I learned from the book it would be to "Never Move Into Pain"! And with this piece of advice I now end my review. Hope this review is helpful for anyone even slightly hesitant in buying this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well worth your money and time 16. Juni 2014
Von Ryan S. Crandall - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
It's not often that one finds a book that combines the latest research in an easily readable format, but Todd Hargrove has done it in his book 'A Guide to Better Movement'. In his book, Todd writes a compelling case for looking at pain and movement from a neuroscience perspective. It's written at a level for the professional (Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Personal Trainer) on down to the lay person who is in pain and needs help. Understanding the science behind pain is relatively new and unfortunately not many professionals have taken the time to learn the basics of it. With this book, they will have a much better understand of dealing with people in pain especially folks in chronic pain.

Read it and practice the great focused movements in the end!

5.0 von 5 Sternen So glad this has finally arrived! 26. Mai 2014
Von FeldyPT - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have just ordered this book and have read some of the samples through Amazon's quick look. As a physical therapist, I am well aware of the misinformation on movement philosophies and the many applications that are available to those who just want to keep healthy and look good. Todd is able to write in such a concise and understandable way. He goes the 'distance' on research and experiential learning to provide us this quarterback view. After reading Todd's blog postings over the years, he is more than ready to bring it to us in book format. You will not be disappointed with this book. I look forward to stocking this on my PT clinic shelves to help my patients find good solutions to move more optimally.
