Chiropractic Technique is a quick reference guide designed for students, instructors, and healthcare providers. This textbook provides concise, easily accessible information on joint play and mobilizations, muscle energy, myofascial techniques, and much more. Use the Chiropractic Technique WebBook in the classroom and clinic for patient education.

“Movement = health and motion is life.”  — Joint mobilization is a physical therapy technique used to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension, and improve flexibility in a joint. With joint mobilization, the physical therapist applies gentle passive movements to the joint, which stretches the tissue and restores joint play. These motions stretch and strengthen the surrounding tissue helping reduce pain and spasm, and increasing mobility.

Chiropractic Technique is a valuable study guide to prepare for National Board Exams, State/Province Board Exams, Clinical Skills Examinations and many other standardized licensure examinations.

This text bridges the gap between academics and practical application. Information sources include original research articles with cutting-edge information, 100s of cadaver dissections, and decades of evidence based, multidisciplinary clinical experience. We demo with different sized practitioners to show variation in biomechanics and gender application (5ft/98lbs female vs. 6ft/180lbs male).


For Students

  • Execute the steps of effective mobilizations and joint-play including indications, CIs, position, contact, tissue pull and vectors
  • Chapter quizzes and final exam
  • Video of ROM, special tests, and mobilizations

 

For Instructors

  • By chapter learning objectives and outcome markers
  • Regional quizzes and grading rubrics
  • Follow-up evidence based Orthopedic Assessment and orthopathology texts

 

Chiropractic Technique is a valuable study guide to prepare for National Board Exams, State/Province Board Exams, Clinical Skills Examinations and many other standardized licensure examinations.

  • Person Centred Principles and Best Practices
  • Over 2000 Illustrations and Images
