Maitland - a unique approach based on procedures for thorough assessment and reassessment of patients. The 6th edition has been extensively revised, presenting an integrated contemporary and evidence-based model of manipulative physiotherapy. Updated and expanded coverage throughout reflects advances in knowledge and the role of manipulative physiotherapy within contemporary clinical practice.

For the sixth edition, Geoff Maitland is joined by three co-authors who have worked closely with him, and add invaluable input to the updating and revision of this classic text. Redesigned in a new colour format, the book also includes expanded text with a new chapter on prognosis and new material to further explain the Maitland concept and method.
