  • Description
  • Details

The most authoritative contemporary textbook on the core components of the rapidly developing medical discipline known as Musculoskeletal Medicine - the "Bible" for clinicians, both medical practitioners and therapists, who wish to advance their knowledge of the evaluation and non-surgical management of back pain and a range of painful disorders of the locomotive system.

This multi-author text with contributions from international experts is an authoritative account of the basis of Musculoskeletal Medicine in contemporary medical society and provides the reader with advanced knowledge of the conceptual basis, diagnostic challenge, and pragmatic management of dysfunctions of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
Musculoskeletal Medicine is now recognised as a distinct branch of medicine, incorporating the sub-specialty of manual medicine, orthopaedic medicine, and the neuromusculoskeletal component of osteopathic medicine. The co-editors have been active in promoting the discipline worldwide. The textbook has been eagerly awaited, not least by those doctors and therapists who wish to expand and improve their skill base, or to further their careers and academic accomplishments, to the benefit of the patient.
