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. Key points Complete guide to manual therapy for physiotherapists Fully revised, third edition with new topics included Authored by Michigan-based expert in the field Previous edition (9789350903049) published in 2012
Manipulative Therapy provides a systematic overview of chain reactions which are the basis of a rational holistic approach. These reactions are closely related to the upright human posture and to the "deep stabilisation system" as shown in the work of Richardson et al in Therapeutic Exercise for Spinal Stabilisation in Low Back Pain. This approach has meant a considerable advance in the therapy and rehabilitation of patients. It gives a balanced picture of the importance of musles, joints and soft tissues, under the control of the nervous system, the textbook aims to treat disturbance of function, the most common cause of pain in the motor system, in the most effective way. Locomotor system dysfunctions are shown to be treated very effectively using manual medicine techniques. Spinal column and joint mobility can be restored, and pain triggered by the autonomic nervous system can be positively influenced. This is a comprehensive source of information relating to pathogenesis, diagnosis, indications and treatment methods, incorporating the latest research findings. Radiological diagnosis is is shown as laying the foundation for successful diagnosis and treatment with manual medicine techniques. Typical conditions associated with pain in the locomotor system is presented and described in functional terms for the first time. The book concludes with chapters covering preventative aspects and expert assessment. Manipulative Therapy: Musculoskeletal Medicine is the follow on from: Manipulative Therapy in Rehabilitation of the Locomotor System, published by Butterworth Heinemann, 1985.

At the request of a Subcommittee of the United States Senate, in February, 1975, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (now the National Institute of Neurological and Communi cative Disorders and Stroke) conducted a Workshop on the Research Status of Spinal Manipulative Therapy. The Workshop was held in response to the Senate Subcommittee's request for an "independent unbiased study of the fundamentals of the chiropractic profession. " Since spinal manipulative therapy is a key tenet of chiropractic, the Institute felt a research workshop focused on that issue would provide a useful base upon which to examine the broad concept of the role of biomechanical alterations of the spine in health and disease. This would include the pathophysiologic and clinical hypotheses formulated by medical and osteopathic physicians as w~ll as chiropractors. Why the relatively sudden interest of the Senate Subcommittee in chiropractic? There were probably many reasons for that interest, but suffice to say anticipation of discussion on the role of chiro practic in any national system of health insurance could in itself have provided adequate stimulus for the request. In any case, the NINCDS was asked to review what was and what was not known about the fundamentals of chiropractic. I stress "fundamentals" since as a research organization, the NINCDS is not charged with review ing matters such as clinical education, licensure or clinical prac tice. A small expert committee of scientific consultants helped the Institute design the format and agenda for the Workshop.

Excerpt: Throughout its history chiropractic has been the subject of internal and external controversy and criticism. Daniel D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, manipulated the spine of a man who was nearly deaf and then claimed he had cured him of deafness. A critical evaluation stated "Chiropractic is rooted in mystical concepts. This led to an internal conflict within the chiropractic profession, which continues today." Chiropractors, including D.D. Palmer, were jailed for practicing medicine without a license. For most of its existence, chiropractic has battled with mainstream medicine, sustained by what are characterized as antiscientific and pseudoscient...

When first published in 1985, this book was readily welcomed by both students and practitioners of physical medicine. It was the first full English-language introduction to the work of a world authority in the field; it remains unique, but its success has prompted some revision. Completely revised for the third edition, this book continues to offer a thought-provoking account of musculoskeletal disorders which will deepen the understanding of all therapists.

The Science and Clinical Application of Manual Therapy is a multi-disciplinary, international reference book based on work by the top basic science researchers and clinical researchers in the area of Manual Therapy and Manual Medicine (MT/MM). The first book to bring together research on the benefits of MT/MM beyond the known effects on musculoskeletal disorders, it presents evidence of the benefit of MT/MM in treating systemic disorders such as asthma, heart rate dysfunction and GI disturbance. Authored by the leading multidisciplinary basic science and clinical researchers from throughout the world Describes research confirming benefit of MT for musculoskeletal disorders (which helps provide a rational for greater utilization of manual therapy and reimbursement for this healthcare service) Presents the latest findings on the beneficial effect of MT on systemic disorders including asthma, pneumonia, otitis media, heart rate dysfunction and GI disturbance Critically assesses longstanding theoretical models of MT/MM mechanisms with respect to the current understanding of physiological and neurophysiological function Explores the influences of psychological and cortical processes on the effects of MT/MM, including the effect of placebo Uniquely presents research findings from all the manual therapy professions and scientists making the case for the benefits of MT The symposium from which the book was derived was supported by the NIH National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine

A must-have physical and manipulative therapy case book to facilitate confident diagnosis Cases in Differential Diagnosis for the Physical and Manipulative Therapies: a Case Based Approach is a high-quality Australian case book ideal for students studying physical and manipulative therapy. This physical and manipulative therapy textbook facilitates development of the skills students and therapists need to reach a final diagnosis or differential diagnosis with confidence. Cases in Differential Diagnosis for the Physical and Manipulative Therapies features more than 225 clinical presentations in differential diagnosis. All cases are presented in four life stages – infancy and childhood, adolescence, the adult years and the later or elderly years – and each life stage covers a broad range of differential clinical topics. With this physical and manipulative therapy text, students will gain valuable insight into scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice, while developing and refining their diagnostic skills. Cases include unsteadiness and vertigo in the elderly, fever in infancy and childhood, reproductive disturbances in women, and eating disorders, substance abuse and behavioural disturbances in adolescence. Over 35 experts from diverse fields have contributed to Cases in Differential Diagnosis for the Physical and Manipulative Therapies, which also boasts comprehensive appendices featuring abbreviations, orthopaedic tests and extra questions. As physical and manipulative therapists often find themselves in the role of the primary contact practitioner, it is imperative they are trained to identify underlying medical problems that may require referral to a medical practitioner. With this invaluable diagnostic resource they can do just that.
