Spinal manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) is a procedure intended for patients who suffer from musculoskeletal disorders in conjunction with biomechanical dysfunction. Performed using monitored anesthesia care, this technique is overcoming its controversial image and receiving regular use by a great number of practitioners. Manipulation Under Anesthesia is the first book to present the procedure from a historical perspective to present day use. Focusing on all aspects of MUA technique, the text provides an outline that represents this procedure from a scientific perspective, along with information concerning patient selection criteria, and documentation explaining outcomes from patient procedures. It discusses the protocols and standards by which the procedure should be incorporated into the facilities where it is being performed, features an overview of the generic procedure and policies for documenting results, and addresses the overall use of the procedure from pre-MUA through post-MUA rehabilitation. With justification for the procedure from both a clinical and patient management standpoint, this unique compilation of information is useful as both a reference and as an educational aid for doctors. It provides the necessary tools for investigating the procedure and incorporating it into any healthcare specialty.

Author Clair Davies' own case of frozen shoulder led him to undertake an extensive study of trigger points and referred pain that eventually resulted in his runaway best-seller, "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook". Now, this renowned bodywork expert and educator revisits the subject of frozen shoulder, offering the most detailed and comprehensive manual yet available about this painful and debilitating condition, a useful resource for self-care and for bodywork practitioners looking to expand their treatment repertoire. Frozen shoulder, the syndrome name for several joint and tendon-related symptoms, is experienced as a loss of motion and pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It is most often observed in women between the ages of forty and sixty and individuals with type-two diabetes. Traditional medical treatments for the condition, which rely on painkillers, steroid injections and physical therapy, often do little to moderate symptoms or speed recovery. Trigger point therapy, a gentle massage technique that targets localised areas of tenderness in soft tissue, has been used very successfully to relieve pain, restore range of motion and shorten recovery times.

All aspects are covered: epidemiology, etiology, anatomy and biomechanics, clinical symptoms, histology and laboratory tests, physical examinations, imaging studies and the various conservative and surgical treatment options.
