Description

Now in its fourth edition Manipulation of the Spine, Thorax and Pelvis continues to support the practitioner in acquiring and refining their skills on safely using high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust techniques. This trusted and highly visual resource – now with 275 images and access to a website with 56 ‘technique’ videos – advocates an approach that uses minimal leverage to achieve a cavitation in a safe, comfortable and effective manner.

The new edition addresses the important issues surrounding patient consent and discusses safety issues in the broader context of relative risk. New sections include appropriate use of manipulation when treating radiculopathy and musculoskeletal conditions in pregnant women and children. It also further encourages the practitioner to reflect on how they are performing manipulative techniques and thus focus on improving their skills.

Key Features

  • Step-by-step coverage of 41 commonly used manipulation (HVLA) thrust techniques supported by 275 photographs/drawings and 56 videos
  • Concise technique summaries provide an innovative review process
  • A troubleshooting section in which difficulties with technique application can be addressed
  • Comprehensive review of spinal kinematics and spinal positioning for manipulation techniques
  • Examines evidence relating to cavitation and the clinical effectiveness of spinal manipulation

Index

The website – www.spinethoraxpelvis.com – accompanying this text includes video sequences of all the techniques described in Part B (with the exception of the last technique described in Chapter 11.) These are indicated in the text by the following symbol. It also contains an image bank of downloadable images from the book. The website is designed to be used as an adjunct to the text and not as a stand-alone product.
