    Review quote
    The conservative management of spinal pain syndromes requires the development of many skills including the necessary psychomotor skills to perform joint manipulation. Skill acquisition is not automatic and requires progressive steps of motor learning and frequent refreshment of learning. This novel text and accompanying CD-ROM aims to support practitioners' learning and acquisition of manual skill to perform high velocity, low amplitude spinal manipulations and is likely to provide a valuable resource for both teachers and students of manipulative therapy. Gwendolen Jull Mphy GradDipManipTher FACP Associate Professor and Head of Department of Physiotherapy, The University of Queensland, Australia Peter Gibbons and Philip Tehan have taken the extremely difficult subject of the actual skill teaching in HVLA technique and produced what should prove to be a real milestone. Having been teaching this subject since 1964, I fully understand the problems that they have faced, and their frustration in trying to help students climb the learning curve at a faster rate than is usually possible. The inclusion of a companion DVD with video is clearly the way forward and the no-nonsense approach to making this work available across boundaries of like-minded disciplines is to be applauded. I highly commend this work to all those working in the manipulative fields. I believe that it will help raise the standards of knowledge of manipulative practitioners world-wide as well as confirming the logical thinking and educational process of osteopathic practitioners.
