Greenman's Principles of Manual Medicine
Greenman's Principles of Manual Medicine has been fully updated and expanded for its Fourth Edition. This practical guide covers the foundations of manual medicine as well as specific techniques for diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal pain. More than 1,000 photographs combined with detailed instructions for each technique make this an invaluable clinical reference. Practitioners can keep up to date with expanded chapters on increasingly popular soft tissue techniques and new techniques for the treatment of closed head injuries. Adjunctive techniques and the use of exercise to prevent and treat disease are also covered.
