New Manual Articular Approach; Cervical Spine

Patient cases that eluded the authors, compelled them to consider why. Sometimes answers were only found after years of trying different methods and learning from their mistakes. This book is based on their clinical process of trial and error.

In the first part of this book, Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier explore the “hidden” imperatives that influence vertebral biomechanics. What else might constrain joint play differently from how it is described by the standard laws of vertebral behavior? With an innovative approach, they apply their systems model of the vertebral column to the complexities of the cervical spine. It is not enough to intervene on the inter-apophyseal level alone. A therapist must take neural, vascular, muscular, ligamentous, dural, and other systems into account.

In the second part of this book, the authors present original techniques to offer better relief to the multitude of patients who suffer from cervical pain. The techniques described are the fruit of many years of clinical experience. Precise and complete maneuvers address joints together with their periarticular structures.

This book series is ideally suited for professional osteopaths, students of osteopathy, physiotherapists, and manual therapists wishing to deepen their practice and enrich their skill set.
