Craniofacial Pain

Rating
In Craniofacial Pain, von Piekartz and his co-authors combine the latest evidence-based knowledge from the fields of orthodontics, plastic and neurosurgery, as well as otolaryngeal treatments, physiotherapy and manual therapy to provide new treatment strategies for clinicians interested in craniofacial problems. Von Piekartz's approach is based on the latest clinical reasoning models. Grounded in pain science theory and modern craniofacial growth concepts, the techniques can be integrated into any manual, neuro-orthopaedic orientated treatment model. This approach can be easily used in the daily clinic and adapted to a variety of patterns of craniofacial pain. Craniofacial Pain is an invaluable clinical text for practitioners who are interested in, or who work with, patients of all ages with a wide range of head, neck and facial problems, and builds upon the companion text to this volume Craniofacial Dysfunction and Pain (2000). Practical, evidence-based and comprehensive Highly illustrated Clearly described manual techniques and management strategies Clinically relevant Includes contributions from leaders in the field Covers adult and paediatric treatment

Reviews

"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 ?
