Like the previous edition, the book describes approaches to treating a wide range of clinical problems, including musculoskeletal pain, headaches, temporomandibular disorders, fibromyalgia, Raynaud's disease, and more. New chapters include coverage of pediatric headaches, pelvic floor-related disorders, and applications for athletes and musicians.
