Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0792388399, Paperback)

Back pain is the single greatest cause of chronic sickness, and an increasing one, in the 16-44 age group. Management of back pain is of growing importance in general practice, and medical manipulation is easily taught and safely used by the GP. Manipulation is, however, still a relatively controversial technique and this book presents the basic science and techniques of the process in a form that is usable by all GPs. The basic epidemiology, pathology, psychology and physiology of spinal pain are considered, followed by a straightforward account of the indications, contraindications and dangers of manipulation. Descriptions and illustrations of selected techniques are provided. Manipulation is also discussed in the context of the other therapies available to the GP either directly or by referral. This practical book should be of value to all those concerned with spinal pain and the use of medical manipulation in its treatment.
