Prof. Georg Hohmann, director of the orthopedic clinic of Frankfort University, collaborated with Lina Stumpf, instructor of gymnastics at the same clinic, in the preparation of this excellent book. The authors have clearly presented their views of the problems concerned in the treatment of the various postural variations and deformities of the back and extremities. The most important chapters are on the round back, sway back and scoliosis. There is a chapter on the paralytic, contractures of the limbs and war injuries and other disabilities. By means of line drawings and photographs they have depicted various exercises and mechanical devices that assist the patient in performing the corrective exercises. The instructive illustrations reveal at a glance the nature and method of the corrective exercise.
