From the Publisher
First published in 1964, this best-selling book is one of the foundation texts for all modern manual therapists, the previous edition alone having sold over 30,000 copies. Maitland's Concept of Manipulative Therapy is established as one of the standard approaches to spinal manipulative techniques. Maitland's Vertebral Manipulation is an indispensible and authoritative guide to this approach. For the sixth edition, Geoff Maitland is joined by three co-authors who have worked closely with him, and add invaluable input to the updating and revision of this classic text. Redesigned in a new colour format, the book also includes expanded text with a new chapter on prognosis and new material to further explain the Maitland concept and method. This long awaited text is sure to continue as the essential cornerstone for all physiotherapy students and practitioners.
