Product description

Fully updated and revised for a second edition, this textbook offers a comprehensive, evidence-based guide to the treatment and management of the neuromusculoskeletal system, providing vital support for both students and experienced therapists. As with the previous edition the text deals with function and dysfunction of joints, muscles and nerves offering treatment options in all cases. Underpinning theory and research is used extensively to explain the clinical use of each treatment option. This new edition has benefited from the author - Nicola Petty - becoming editor and enabling leading clinicians and academics to contribute to the text which now offers a broader range of perspectives.
