Medical Gymnastics in Medicine and Surgery.

Medical Gymnastics in Medicine and Surgery. This book has been written for students of medical gymnastics to be used alongside a book that describes the technic of the various exercises and manipulations, such as Kleen's "Massage and Medical Gymnastics." It attempts to make the operator more intelligent in the application of the prescribed gymnastic treatment by teaching something about the nature of various diseases. "It is essential," says the author that "the masseuse should understand something about the condition which she is treating. There is a great difference between an intelligent, well-taught masseuse and a masseuse who works like a machine. The more thorough the training of the masseuse, the more she realizes that she must rely on her medical man for directions as to details of treatment." It is so obvious that the more of medicine the masseur understands, the better a masseur he is, that it may be questioned whether massage should be practiced http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
