This book was written by a physiotherapist primarily as a textbook for British student technicians in physiotherapy. It contains chapters covering such subjects as mechanical principles, rhythm, timing and duration of movement, relaxation, joint mobility, muscle strengthening, endurance in coordination exercises, and individual and group care. The text is illustrated with very simple line drawings and presents a series of techniques that may be of some value in therapy, provided these techniques are prescribed by physicians who understand the indications and contraindications for their use.
