Home Treatment in Injury and Osteoarthritis

Home Treatment in Injury and Osteoarthritis This small volume contains a great deal of information about body mechanics, wear and strain of parts, exercise, and posture. The volume is divided into 2 parts: the first of primary interest to the physician, and the second a series of leaflets which can be obtained separately for handing out to patients. Much of the first part of the volume, supposedly written for the physician, is so elementary and pedestrian that many a physician will feel he has gone back to his high school hygiene class in body posture. Much of the discussion, however, is ingenious and appears to be the invention of the author rather than the generally accepted principles of orthopedics. The line drawing illustrations are crudely done but reasonably adequate to illustrate the points intended. Some of the terms used are inventions of the author, e.g., "round-shouldered back," "active alerted posture," and so forth.
