This book does not presume or attempt to be an encyclopedic compendium of all types of alternative medicine services. Instead, we have selected representative therapies that will serve to introduce the reader to the wide range of therapies available. The book has organised the chapters into categories that emphasise their kinship with the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation: manipulation, therapeutic movement, mind-body techniques and physical modalities. Subsequent sections deal with research and reimbursement, while the final chapters highlight specific therapies in the clinical management of several common disabling disorders.
This book will be of considerable interest to a wide range of medical specialists, particularly those who treat chronic or painful disabling diseases: Physiatrists, Neurologists, Rheumatologists, Orthopedists, Neurosurgeons, Anesthesiologists, Internists and Primary Care Physicians. Additionally, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Chiropractors and Herbalists will find its contents useful. Finally, Practitioners of any of the individual therapies included in the contents will find a wealth of scientific and clinical documentation to utilise in their practices.
