"Manual Therapy of the Extremities provides learners throughout the continuum with an opportunity to learn and improve skill acquisition for many manual therapy techniques. I strongly endorse the utilization of this textbook for students, residents, OMPT fellows in training, and Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy since I am confident that individuals from each of those groups will find value within the pages of this textbook."
~ Robert H. Rowe, PT, DPT, DMT, MHS, FAAOMPT

Manual Therapy of the Extremities presents manual therapy techniques for the upper and lower extremities from a variety of perspectives. Organized by joint and then by the restricted motions of the joint, this format is perfect for education and clinical reference as the clinician will be able to choose from a variety of techniques to treat a restriction of motion in a specific direction without having to navigate between chapters. The description of multiple types of techniques for each restriction is unique to this textbook, making it the most comprehensive resource available on this topic with the overall aim of providing students and clinicians a well-rounded approach to manual therapy. Over 190 author provided video tutorials are included in the eBook. 

Manual Therapy of the Extremities provides an overview of the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the joints, as well as a review of the available evidence for the efficacy of manual therapy, allowing evidence-based decision-making for the most appropriate technique for the specific clinical situation.

Key Features include:
 • More than 570 color photographs and illustrations with the majority including arrows to indicate movement
 • Access to over 191 tutorial videos
 • Learning objectives

  • "I like the concept of the text very much. There are multiple approaches within the field of orthopedic physical therapy to address movement restrictions a the joint and soft tissue levels. This book will provide practicing physical therapists and students with multiple tools to choose from in managing patient dysfunction."

    ~ Eric R. Miller, PT, DSc, FAAOMPT, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, D'Youville College

  • "The content of this text has a unique concept in introducing an eclectic array of manual therapy treatment interventions.  This is a great advantage for an entry level student to be exposed to these various treatment modes. The text also provides an excellent amount of self-mobilization which can be given to patients as part of their home exercise program."
