"Leech therapy is an old procedure that has received increasing attention in clinical settings in recent years.
It is particularly successful e.g. used for the therapy of painful knee joint arthrosis, tennis elbow or rheumatic inflammation.
This book shows the basics, methodology and applications of leech therapy. The focus is on areas of indication already proven by scientific studies.
Therapists benefit from specific instructions for leech therapy and learn about the range of possibilities, but also the limits of the procedure. The evaluation of the procedure for the individual indications helps to assess the choice of therapy more reliably. "
