Principles of Manual Therapy

Este product no está disponible en la moneda seleccionada.


Manual therapy, also known as manipulative therapy, is a physical treatment that is typically used in conjunction with traditional physical therapy techniques. The physical therapist will use their hands to apply pressure on muscle tissue and/or manipulate joints of the body, as opposed to using a machine or device.

This new edition is a complete guide to manual therapy for physiotherapists.

Divided into four parts, the first section explains the principles and techniques of manual therapy, followed by discussion on it use for disorders in both the spine and upper and lower musculoskeletal extremities.

The next part covers manual therapy techniques for mechanical peripheral nerve entrapment, with the final parts of the book describing therapy for regional conditions (cervical, thoracic, lumbopelvic, hip, knee and extremities); and neglected zones in the upper and lower quarters of the body.

Authored by a Michigan-based expert in the field, the third edition has been fully revised to provide the latest techniques in manual therapy.

The comprehensive text is further enhanced by clinical photographs, illustrations and tables.
