7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Scott Cuthbert on February 11, 2013
Format: Paperback
The Australian physiotherapist clinical-researcher David Butler's earlier work in assessing and treating mechanical restrictions of the nervous system, as described in his best-selling book Mobilisation of the Nervous System, has had an enormous influence on manual therapy, world-wide(Butler, 1991). His latest book expands on the developing scientific support for neural mobilization, discussing how manual treatments effect the CNS at the synaptic and molecular level and to evaluate how neurological processing is effected by psychological and physical inputs. What Butler achieves here is a depiction of the CNS in the widest context of neurobiology and its associated research. The integrative model of health care (involving the structural, chemical and emotional triad) is supported with exhaustive but elegantly presented scientific research. The depth of Butler's insights into what manual therapists are doing with and achieving for their clients is astonishing, deserving of detailed study. Why manual therapy works...the bio-psycho-social framework of the answer to that question is richly provided here.

-- Dr. Scott Cuthbert, author of Applied Kinesiology Essentials: The Missing Link in Health Care (2013), and Applied Kinesiology: Clinical Techniques for Lower Body Dysfunctions (2013).

His books are so knowledgable and informative, but easy to understand and follow...which isn't the case with most neuro books. GREAT book!

This book was recommended to me to help understand the nervous system. It was expensive and I didn't get much out of it.
