"The book has impact right from the very beginning. [...] ...this book is an excellent contribution, updating current knowledge regarding the functional anatomy and treatment of mechanical neck pain. Epidemiologists tell us that the prevalence of neck pain is very high in the general population, and that better understanding of the problem should improve management and encourage standardized therapeutic guidelines."European Journal of Chiropractic, April 2001

is a detailed and useful text with an international perspective, containing chapters by physiotherpaists and medical reserachers from Australia, the USA, the UK, the Netherlands and Canada.
It is easy to follow, well referenced and comprehensively illustrated... Information is summarised in tabulated form, which would be useful for revising students.
I would recommend this book as a comprehensive guide to the examination and management of cervical spine dysfunction. It takes an evidence based, holistic view which is interesting and refreshing.
It is well presented and would be a valuable addition to the library of a practitioner at any level."Physiotherapy
is the second volume of the trilogy, The Clinical Anatomy and Management of Back Pain ... the final volume on the thoracic spine, scheduled for this year, is expected to be released in the first half of 2000. The Low Back volume was effusively reviewed by this writer in 1997, and this current release lives up to expectations.
It is authoritatively written by a solid team of contributors, including the talented Meridel Gatterman, Lindsay Rowe, and Allan Terrett, and very well illustrated with excellent diagrams and several novel overlays, where line art is superimposed on a photograph to clearly demonstrate the underlying anatomical structures...
This is a wonderful book with good clinical utility." Best of Books for 1999 section, Chiropractic Journal of Australia, Volume 29, Number 4, December 1999
