"The second edition presents enhanced algorithms to guide progressive therapeutic exercise and specially designed patient assessment provocation tests to help you determine the cause of back troubles, guide your choices in the best ways to eliminate problems, and improve the development of appropriate activities for functional gain. Whereas the first edition focused on increasing spine stability, the second edition provides new information on dealing with both regional instability or mobility and regional stiffness present in individuals where most of the motion occurs at a single spinal segment."--Jacket."
