This book is an introductory text to spinal disorders. Based on the highly successful forerunner to this volume, Practical Orthopaedic Medicine, the book still retains the original philosophy of this text which is to systematically cover all the joints discussing examination, diagnosis and treatment. The full spectrum of therapies is covered with particular emphasis on Maitland's widely practised spinal manipulation techniques - how they are assessed clinically and their role in the management of spinal problems. A complete review of the current literature has been undertaken and a valuable new chapter on the spine in sport has been added.
This book will be essential reading for students and practitioners involved in sports medicine, orthopaedic medicine and physiotherapy.
