Maitland's Clinical Companion: An Essential Guide for Students
Churchill Livingstone/Elsevier, 2009 - Medical - 684 pages
Maitland's Clinical Companion is the ideal reference for students who need support during their neuromusculoskeletal clinical practice in areas such as communication, clinical reasoning, examination and assessment. It is a vital source for understanding the role of mobilisation and manipulation in helping to maximize the recovery, rehabilitation and functioning of patients with movement-related disorders.
The principles of the Maitland Concept of Manipulative Physiotherapy are applied to each body region so as to guide the student through to the appropriate selection, application and progression of mobilisation and manipulation techniques within the context of contemporary physiotherapeutic rehabilitation.
A vital companion to the classic texts - Vertebral and Peripheral Manipulation - which promotes a patient-centred approach to neuromusculoskeletal disorders.
