Palpation and Assessment Skills
– Assessment and Diagnosis Through Touch
Like the popular previous Edition, the new Edition of Palpation Skills has been designed and developed to help the reader to understand and acquire the palpatory skills which are the foundation of all effective manual therapy assessments and treatments. Subtle and sensitivity of touch and the accurate interpretation of palpatory tests are required from the start of training in any of the manual therapy professions. It is difficult to learn these from written descriptions or static illustrations alone.

Palpation Skills: Assessment and Diagnosis through Touch will be of practical to use to every manual therapist and practitioner at all stages of their professional development. It can help them to extend the range of skills they can bring to their practice by bringing together suggested approaches from a variety of disciplines.
