Fuctional Neurology for Practitioners of Manual Medicine takes the reader from the embryonic beginnings of the nervous system, through the biochemistry of receptor activation and on to the functional systems of the nervous system. Concepts, relationships and scientific mechanisms of the nervous system function are covered, and this aids the practitioner in developing their clinical approach to a wide variety of patient presentations.

The text is fully referenced, which allows the reader to immediately apply the concepts to practice situations. New for this edition are new chapters on pain (including headache) and theoretical evidence, plus extensive electronic resources supporting the text.

Key Features

  • Utilizes our understanding of how the nervous system works in the treatment of a variety of clinical conditions
  • Demystifies the clinical results seen in the practice of Functional Neurology and scientifically validates its clinical success

  • Contains clinical cases which are designed to be read and answered before starting the chapter to allow the reader to gauge their current state of knowledge
  • 'Quick Facts' introduce new concepts or allow rapid review of information already presented in the text in a brief and succinct manner
  • Contains a detailed overview of the concepts relating to our understanding of the development of emotion to demonstrate the link between physical health and the mind

Industry Reviews

"Overall this text would be an excellent resource to any practising physiotherapist or health professional within musculoskeletal and orthopaedics from the new graduate to the experienced clinician. It is concise, clear to follow and covers each subject extensively with evidence-based practise to accompany manual techniques. A must have for enhancing clinical practise."
