Over the years and four editions, Vertebral Manipulation has evolved to become a standard work on spinal manipulative techniques. The Maitland approach has become accepted throughout the world, and the book acknowledged as the indispensable guide to techniques. During this period, advances both in treatment and in our understanding of locomotor disorders have been considerable, and the book has changed steadily to accommodate them. At the same time the author's ideas about presentation have developed as a result of long teaching experience and informed criticisms from other users. In the light of all these changes, it was felt the time had come for a radical revision of both content and presentation. The fifth is therefore a marked departure from previous editions. There is a new, larger format which is both easier to use and more pleasing in appearance. There are many more illustrations, some showing the details of manipulation and others providing graphic representation of the underlying principles. The text now includes discussion of the new ideas on examination and treatment which have recently emerged, most notably from Australia, New Zealand and Sweden. The structure of the book has also been overhauled, with the result that each section is much more self-contained. Now the busy therapist need only turn to one section of the book to find full coverage of the problems relating to a particular anatomical region. Vertebral Manipulation, much revised, enlarged and improved, will continue as the authoritative source of reference for Maitland's ideas and techniques. At the same time it has been carefully revised to ensure that it remains an easily used and thoroughy up-to-date textbook for all seeking an introduction to this important branch of physiotherapy.
