This, the fifth volume of the Physical Medicine Library, is divided into three parts, as indicated by the title. Half of the book is devoted to massage, including physiologic effect, technics, and clinical applications. The discussions include those on connective tissue massage (bindegewebsmassage), syncardial massage, and mechanical methods, as well as the conventional types of massage. Part II is devoted to manipulation of the spine and the joints of the extremities, as well as stretching of contractures. Part III discusses the various methods of traction used for conditions other than fractures and dislocations.
Most of the book is very detailed
