"This book is very impressive: Chiropractic Peripheral Joint Technique represents an entire work dedicated to the chiropractic approach to the assessment and manual treatment of all the peripheral joints, including the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). [...] The text represents decades of inventive and clinical expertise that is adequately supported by current best-practice evidence and a shift in clinical management from condition-focused to patient-centred functional management is based upon sound neuro-biomechanical principles which strengthen the presentation of the text and underpin the rationale for peripheral joint manipulation. [...] Ray Broome's book is a timely contribution to the literature as the chiropractic profession begins to move forward in developing more partnerships in the healthcare sciences and providing the chiropractic profession with a vehicle for ongoing professional development. There is no doubt in my mind that this text will become a major element in both undergraduate and postgraduate training."European Journal of Chiropractic, April 2001
I am mightily impressed with Dr Broome's efforts with this text. The manner in which the text is structure works to the advantage of the student of manual therapy. ... I recommend it quite highly and congratulate the authors for their significant contribution to the chiropractic literature."Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies, September 2000
guide is easy to understand and well supported with clear photographs and diagrams to illustrate techniques and handhold positions. [...] While this book is directed at chiropractors, it would be a useful library reference book for physiotherapists who wish to understand more about chiropractic treatment of peripheral joints."Physiotherapy, November 2000
this is an absolutely wonderful addition to the chiropractic literature and is certainly one of the most thorough texts on peripheral joint procedures that exists anywhere in the complementary medicine field. provides a comprehensive grounding in the arthrokinematics and neurophysiology of every peripheral joint in the body. This helps make the presented techniques much more clinically oriented that a simple technique manual normally presents. [...] ...the text is certainly applicable beyond the chiropractic profession, though that will be the first primary audience for the book [...] I recommend this text without reservation. I find it very well written and organized, and believe it will enter the pantheon of well-used chiropractic textbooks, of which there are still too few."Manual Therapy, August 2000
