"I'm happy to say that this book is excellent and addresses all my concerns!
The treatment section is beautifully described and takes the reader from diagnosis through to treatment and covers all areas of the body.
To answer the question; Is this book useful to a physiotherapist in private practice I can answer with a cheery YES!"
