"This research methods textbook distinguishes itself from other textbooks by providing a unique framework and perspective for users/students to establish the relevancy of research in their clinical practice. Many, if not most, students in professional preparation allied health care programs view the research methods/statistics course requirement of the curriculum as an obstacle to be overcome, or at best, as a necessary evil. Most research methods textbooks promote these notions because of the way they are presented. Of course, most times they are written by researchers or statisticians and are absolutely correct in presenting the theoretical underpinnings and mechanistic applications of the scientific method. They correctly present explanations as to why one type of methodology requires a certain type of statistical analysis based on the characteristics of the study population, the type of data collected, or the underlying assumptions pertinent to a specific statistical model. So, while technically beyond reproach, their failure is in establishing how and why research activity and understanding is integral to a professional practice"--Provided by publisher.

Vertebral Manipulation: Fourth Edition presents a comprehensive examination of the methods of passive movement treatment. It discusses the effectiveness of gentler manipulation of conscious patients. It addresses the relationship between the treatment and the patient’s symptoms and signs. Some of the topics covered in the book are the organic disorders not involving the vertebrae; disease of the spinal cord; passive physiological intervertebral movement; techniques of mobilization; method of oscillatory movement; postero-anterior central vertebral pressure; and method of progression of the lumbar region. The methods in the application of mobilization are fully covered. An in-depth account of the manipulative techniques is provided. The manipulations are progressions from mobilizations which have increased in strength. Application of such manipulations is completely presented.
