This is a practical guide to the examination and assessment of the neuromusculoskeletal system which aims to enable the therapist to identify a client's problem before deciding on a treatment. Because it focuses on these preliminary diagnostic processes it is a complementary text supporting books on the various treatment techniques themselves (such as the available books by Leon Chaitow, Gregory Grieve, etc). It brings together as one process the examination and assessment of all the structures involved: joint, nerve and muscle tissue, and is designed for use by anyone requiring to identify and assess clinical problems in this area - both student and clinician. It is highly illustrated with clear, step-by-step sequences of illustrations and text that are logical and easy to follow. The co-author Ann Moore is also co-author of The Clinical Educator - Role Development, and co-editor of the journal Manual Therapy. She is probably the best known person in the manual therapy field in the UK and beyond. Features: * Addresses a need common to all manual therapists * Complements 'technique manuals' by focusing on the preliminary diagnostic processes * Helps therapists ensure that the chosen strategy for treatment and management of clients is soundly based * Highly illustrated, step-by-step format is logical and very accessible * Surprisingly, fills a current gap in the manual therapy literature * Refers to the classic technique texts which are well established among the intended readership * Written by two experienced teachers who are also highly experienced clinicians. Ann Moore is one of the best known names in Manual Therapy in the UK and beyond. * Because the text does not address treatment it is suitable for wll professional groups whose work involves assessment of this system, including orthopaedic surgeons, physicians and all types of manual and manipulative therapists
