Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The book is a carefully crafted work that belongs in the hands of all hands-on clinicians who specialize in the subject matter or who want to specialize, and for others who simply desire to be more aware of it. Also as a relevant resource to practitioners who utilize the team approach. The book has solid, vast, theoretical underpinning within the first eight chapters, and the following eight chapters are specific to intervention with an abundance of hands-on techniques such that "Physical Medicine" practitioners can learn and integrate in their practice, or, at the very least, fine-tune current skills. This text is placed prominently on the reviewer’s accessible bookshelf in the clinic, and it is endorsed with a 4.5/5 star recommendation.
