Reviews

"Several factors make this an excellent text. The author has presented a vast array of supporting resarch; in fact, 1,381 articles are referenced…specific findings are often summarized in tables, which I found very helpful. Finally, I appreciated the wide array of identified muscoloskeletal disorders and the discussion of clinical relevance of the research."

- A. Lynn Millar, JOSPT, 23(5) May 1996
