ABSTRACT

The text is extremely well illustrated and discusses methods of massage and manipulation and their usefulness in a vast number of conditions pertaining particularly to the musculoskeletal system. Although some techniques of massage and manipulation that are acceptable are discussed, it is difficult to understand why a textbook of orthopedic medicine contains sections on manual vibrations for affecting the pylorus, duodenum, ascending colon, descending colon, and distention of the stomach. Another technique directed toward reproducing "fixed subluxation of the sacroiliac joint" will not be too well received by those who question the existence of such a condition.

The text seems to be overenthusiastic in its indication of the value of massage and manipulation, but, in spite of this, it does clearly present various techniques for the treatment of parts of the musculoskeletal system. The book appears to be written especially for physical therapists.
