Review:

"This text will become an essential manual for all back care practitioners involved in back schools or advising and treating patients with back and neck problems. Jnal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women s Health, February 1995 Jrnl of Association of Chartered Physios, February 1995 Jnal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women s Health, February 1995 Jrnl of Association of Chartered Physios, February 1995 Overall the book is well suited to its purpose, and offers clinicians a readable, well illustrated manual for everyday use with patients. It would therefore be a valuable addition to physiotherapy departments and I would especially recommend it to physiotherapists new to the speciality of spinal disfunction."Physiotherapy, September 1995
