"Reading through his thought provoking book, von Piekartz provides new clinical theories including a number of functional cranial nerve tests that are entirely novel. The assessment of the vertebral regions was based on Maitland's methodology, which is accessible to all manual therapists including osteopaths and chiropractors....It is rare to find an authoritative commentary on a specialist medical topic that provides an opinion on the ongoing politics of healthcare provision and its management...Pickartz has, with the help of his contributors, provided an excellent addition to the accumulating literature on neurological dysfunction and its physical treatment. His book can be thoroughly recommended to all working in the challenging field of physical therapy and the rehabilitation of head pain and dysfunction." Dr Donald Scott ?
