Review

"I received Vol 2 Friday (Sept 20), skimmed it immediately and started reading straight through Sat. What a wealth of information, definitely worth the wait. Thanks so much for your work; excellent program and great books."NMT PRACTITIONER
indeed this is - a large format hardback of almost 600 pages, referenced to the hilt and superbly illustrated with a mixture of line drawings and photographs, and broken up with boxes and charts. It is actually almost too much to take in."CAM October 2002

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a buy if you do not mind typos Dec 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques is an alternative to Travell's Trigger Point Manual if you do not do TP injections. It has great pictures, well explained treatment techniques (if you are up to date with your anatomy and medical terms) and lots of references. The disadvantage are typos (the editor must have had a bad day and was unable to write the German words for the references right, but also some English words are off!) Parts of the text are repeated in the book twice, what I thought is unnecessary and only adds to the number of pages but not the quality of content.
