Book Reviews

"..this text would be an excellent resource to any practicing physiotherapist or health professional who is familiar with Mulligans approach to manual therapy. It offers the opportunity to consolidate knowledge for experienced practitioners and as a reference for those newly familiar. It is concise, clear to follow and is well illustrated throughout." Reviewed by Stuart Elwell on behalf of Physical Therapy in Sport, September 2015

"The introduction gives a brief outline of the nomenclature, core principles and clinical reasoning underpinning the Mulligan concept of manual therapy. The rest of the book’s chapters cover different body parts and describe in detail how to perform techniques with step-by-step instructions, photographs and useful tips." Reviewed by Llewellyn Boucher on behalf of The British Pain Society Newsletter, Pain News, June 2015

"Because of its thoroughness, this textbook is ideal for all manual therapists, from novice to experienced, as well as researchers, teachers, and students. It is an excellent book that is well worth the money, and if you have Mobilization with Movement: the Art and the Science (2011), it makes the perfect companion."
