Now in its fourth edition Manipulation of the Spine, Thorax and Pelvis continues to support the practitioner in acquiring and refining their skills on safely using high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust techniques. This trusted and highly visual resource - now with 275 images and access to a website with 56 'technique' videos - advocates an approach that uses minimal leverage to achieve a cavitation in a safe, comfortable and effective manner.

The new edition addresses the important issues surrounding patient consent and discusses safety issues in the broader context of relative risk. New sections include appropriate use of manipulation when treating radiculopathy and musculoskeletal conditions in pregnant women and children. It also further encourages the practitioner to reflect on how they are performing manipulative techniques and thus focus on improving their skills.
