Back pain is the single greatest cause of chronic sickness in the 16 to 44 age group. Furthermore the incidence is increasing; it has doubled between 1970 and 1980 and again between 1980 and 1990 to reach a figure of 67 million days sickness per annum.
A higher profile to the management of back pain in General Practice is inevitable and medical manipulation is, in particular, suitable for use by GPs. A number of manipulative techniques are easily taught and can be safely used by the GP.
Manipulation is, however, still a relatively controversial technique and this book aims to present the basic science and techniques of the process in a form that should be usable by all GPs. The basic epidemiology, pathology, psychology and physiology of spinal pain are considered followed by a straightforward account of the indications, contraindications and dangers of manipulation. Descriptions and illustrations of selected techniques are provided.
Most important of all, manipulation is discussed in the context of the other therapies available to the GP either directly or by referral.
