"Functional Neurology" utilizes our understanding of how the nervous system works in the treatment of a variety of clinical conditions. "Functional Neurology for Practitioners of Manual Medicine" takes the reader from the embryonic beginnings of the nervous system, through the biochemistry of receptor activation and on to the functional systems of the nervous system. Both the student and the clinician will find this text a valuable source of information and clinical guidance in the application of detailed neurological principles to their practice. Concepts, relationships and scientific mechanisms of the nervous system function are covered, and this aids the practitioner in developing their clinical approach to a wide variety of patient presentations. This text explores the neurological impact of the application of functional neurological principles, using a detailed clinical approach supported by clinical case studies. The text is fully referenced, which allows the reader to immediately apply the concepts to practice situations. New for this edition are new chapters on pain (including headache) and theoretical evidence, plus extensive electronic resources supporting the text.
