More About This Textbook


Intended for use chiefly by non-medically qualified practitioners, particularly those working in the field of manual therapy, the book provides a clear guide through the minefield of signs and symptoms with which clients commonly present. Its aim is to help practitioners to arrive quickly and logically at the correct diagnosis and in so doing to become aware of anything which does not fit the diagnosis and so needs to be referred.

• Provide a framework in which signs and symptoms commonly encountered in primary practice are differentially diagnosed
• Flowcharts for each presenting complaint to aid in the formulation of working diagnosis
• Provides a screening checklist which indicates clinical findings suggesting the need to refer
• Division of information into sections to facilitate ready referral to information routinely used in clinical practice

• CDROM added
• Smaller, easier to use format with a flexicover
• Inclusion of additional laboratory investigations
• Updated information
