Neck and Arm Pain Syndromes

Evidence-informed Screening, Diagnosis and Management

The first of its kind, "Neck and Arm Pain Syndromes" is a comprehensive evidence- and clinical-based book, covering research-based diagnosis, prognosis and management of neuromusculoskeletal pathologies and dysfunctions of the upper quadrant, including joint, muscle, myofascial and neural tissue approaches. It uniquely addresses the expanding role of the various health care professions which require increased knowledge and skills in screening for contra-indications and recognizing the need for medical-surgical referral. "Neck and Arm Pain Syndromes" also stresses the integration of experiential knowledge and a pathophysiologic rationale with current best evidence.
