• "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."

• "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."
