The text first systematically explains assessment, evaluation, treatment, and contraindications. Next, it offers in-depth insights into regional musculoskeletal conditions, supported by relevant anatomy, biomechanics, examination protocols, treatment techniques, and outcomes. Scientific research is analysed to support the tests, techniques, and clinical reasoning presented. Hundreds of colour images are provided, together with extensive scientific bibliographies.
