Clinical Patterns in Manual Therapy

This landmark book in the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is of great clinical relevance and very readable. In it you can appreciate the experience of each of the authors and how the principles of the Maitland Concept are permeated in each chapter: clinical reasoning as an essential pillar, the brick-wall model of thinking with emphasis on the clinical side, treatment and assessment according to the needs of each person and commitment to the patient explaining multiple clinical examples. In the first chapters the authors delve into the theoretical foundations, serving as a link for the later chapters, in which the different clinical pictures most characteristic of each region are presented.

This book has been the result of the effort and experience of the IMTA teachers and is a must for all those who are dedicated to Manual Therapy.
