THE underlying purpose of this book is to present a simple, workable concept of the body's physico-mechanical adaptation to various environmental stresses with its resultant physical manifestations. The plane of explanation is maintained at a level adaptable to the understanding of nurses, therapists, personnel directors, executives and others in the non-medical laity. Actually, the book is like a schizophrenic—it has two personalities. The dual functions are necessary because concepts of industrial medicine and basic sciences are important material for the second part of the book which is the practical guide.
The authors sustain a sincere belief that a registered nurse can effectively and safely alleviate much of the discomfortures of the skeleto-musculo-ligamentous system which results from reactions to life's stresses. This book is edited to serve as a written corollary to oral instructions; the latter would necessitate only about six hours of supervised training and practice for nurses, physical therapists and exercise therapists.
