Manipulation of the Spine, Thorax and Pelvis - Elsevier eBook on VitalSource, 4th Edition

By

Now in its fourth edition Manipulation of the Spine, Thorax and Pelvis continues to support the practitioner in acquiring and refining their skills on safely using high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust techniques. This trusted and highly visual resource – now with 275 images and access to a website with 56 ‘technique’ videos – advocates an approach that uses minimal leverage to achieve a cavitation in a safe, comfortable and effective manner.

The new edition addresses the important issues surrounding patient consent and discusses safety issues in the broader context of relative risk. New sections include appropriate use of manipulation when treating radiculopathy and musculoskeletal conditions in pregnant women and children. It also further encourages the practitioner to reflect on how they are performing manipulative techniques and thus focus on improving their skills.

  • Presents the scientific basis of the HVLA thrust – one of the oldest and most commonly used manipulative techniques available

  • Provides an accessible synthesis of the latest evidence for the effective use of the HVLA thrust

  • Clearly explains coupled motion and describes the latest scientific research in this area

  • Presents over 250 photographs, and 60 minutes of film on an associated website

  • Contains a detailed discussion regarding patient safety

  • Presents a comprehensive discussion surrounding treatment failures

  • Well illustrated and clearly written for easy understanding

  • Advises readers with regards to safe patient selection – particularly important for the management of the cervical spine

  • Suitable for both the novice and expert readerships
  • Access to companion website – www.spinethoraxpelvis.com – containing:
    • video bank of 56 videos (13 new) demonstrating HVLA thrust techniques from Part B of the book
    • image bank of all 275 images from the book
  • 2-colour throughout with over 30 new images
  • Clinical history, presentation and examination for patients presenting with cervical artery dissection
  • Addresses the important issues surrounding patient consent
  • Additional research and guidelines that support the:
    • use of HVLA thrust techniques
    • use of spinal manipulation in the treatment of radiculopathy, pregnant women and children
