Back Pain and Spinal Manipulation: A Practical Guide presents a highly-illustrated, didactic guide to the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of back pain. Based on a diagnostic approach to back pain, the text is extremely practical and includes how-to-do-it-yourself tips based on the authors' many years of practical experience. The second edition of this popular text has been extensively revised and updated to include the developments that have taken place within the field in recent years. New illustrations have been added, and the format has been redesigned to produce a text that makes the information more easily accessible. New for the second edition: manipulation techniques for the thoracic spine; sacro-iliac disorders and treatment; muscle stretching techniques; and muscle energy techniques. Features include: key check points, classification of techniques, charts on technique/directness/specificity, do's and don'ts, and position of the patient/position of the therapist. With an emphasis throughout on practical information that is easy to follow, the book is essential reading for all practitioners, physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths involved in the diagnosis and treatment of back pain.
