Description

CLINICAL BIOMECHANICS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION introduces the basic concepts of biomechanics and emphasizes its applications to daily practice, particularly in the context of spinal manipulation. The chapters cover basic mechanics, functional anatomy, mechanics of spinal manipulation, and effects of spinal manipulative treatment. A chapter of case studies illustrates the application of biomechanics to spinal manipulation in realistic clinical situations.
