Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Martha J. Greenberg, PhD, RN (Pace University)
Description: This book offers an overview of select CAM therapies useful in rehabilitation and rehabilitative medicine. Topics are discussed for their efficacy in prevention, wellness, and therapy.
Purpose: Implicit is the author's aim to present CAM therapies that are useful and appropriate for patients with physical rehabilitation problems and to review CAM therapies that are manual therapies or have components of manual therapies.
Audience: The book is primarily intended for physical therapists and is appropriate for students and practitioners in the field.
Features: Body, mind/body, and energy therapies are discussed within the context of manual therapies. A variety of massage techniques including craniosacral therapy, complete decongestive therapy, myofascial release; mind/body techniques, such as t'ai Chi, biofeedback, yoga; and energy techniques such as reiki, Qi gong, therapeutic touch, and magnets are included. Evidenced-based practice is emphasized. Each chapter also presents case examples, and in some cases training, accreditation, and regulatory issues are discussed.
Assessment: This second edition with updated evidence/research could be an essential book for manual therapists.

Meet the Author

Dr. Carol Davis has practiced physical therapy for over 30 years, beginning her career at the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1969. Her early clinical career expanded to academics in 1971 when she joined the faculty at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. She completed her Doctorate in Humanistic Studies at Boston University in 1982, and has been on the faculty at the University of Miami since that time, except for a 2 and a half year position at Boston University from 1985 to 1987. Currently, she is a tenured professor in the Division of Physical Therapy at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Her practice with complementary therapies began in 1989 when she initiated her study of myofascial release with John Barnes, PT. She has continued studying and practicing myofascial release, along with coursework in craniosacral therapy, Therapeutic Touch, and the Feldenkrais approach. She is the author of several articles and chapters on complementary and alternative therapies, and has produced a videotape lecture entitled The Challenge of the New Millennium—Returning Healing to Health Care: Theoretical Foundation of Holistic Complementary Therapies, which outlines the scientific theory behind holistic approaches-quantum physics and systems theory, and is available from SLACK Incorporated. She also has written three editions of the text, Patient Practitioner Interaction: An Experiential Manual for Developing the Art of Patient Care, also published by SLACK Incorporated. Dr. Davis treats patients weekly using myofascial release as complementary to physical therapy. She teaches in both the entry-level doctoral program in physical therapy (DPT and tDPT) and in the PhD program at the University of Miami. Her research focus on examining the clinical efficacy for the use of myofascial release, especially with elderly patients with musculoskeletal problems. She was awarded the Catherine Worthingham Fellow award by the American Physical Therapy Association, the highest award given to members in 2003.
