Posture and Pain.

Posture and Pain. This book provides a manual of diagnosis and treatment of posture problems which will be found useful by the medical profession and students and practitioners of physical therapy. It provides a rationale for physiotherapeutic methods which all too often are prescribed without much thought as to just why they help. A wealth of photographs and diagrams is contained in this book which very adequately illustrate the common faults of posture, and the methods of testing the joints and muscles in their relation to posture. The various postural faults which result in pain are identified and analyzed, and rational corrective procedures are presented, and, in nearly all instances, illustrated. Enough discussion is included so that a physical therapy student will understand the principles involved rather than simply memorize and follow directions. This reviewer finds a number of things which warrant critical comment. Among these are the omission of scoliosis, as to http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American journal of diseases of children American Medical Association
