Thrust Joint Manipulation Skills for the Spine: A New Manual Therapy Textbook Delivering Clinical Pearls

Josh Crane, OPTP Staff Writer - May 10, 2018

Over the course of their combined 80 years of practicing and teaching manipulative therapy, Emilio Puentedura, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, GDMT, CSMT, FAAOMPT, and William O’Grady, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, DAAPM, FAAOMPT have developed a deep understanding of the why, when and how behind administering thrust joint manipulation.
 
Like anyone who devotes themselves wholeheartedly to a craft, they have acquired specific knowledge of the practice and honed their skills with laser precision. But for these two, simply becoming experts in their field was not enough. Their passion for helping others led to a desire to share their expertise, and so they authored a new manual therapy textbook published exclusively by OPTP.
 
Thrust Joint Manipulation Skills for the Spine, which includes access to videos demonstrating 45 manipulation techniques, is designed for both clinicians and students. The book demonstrates when and how to perform thrust joint manipulation techniques for patients with musculoskeletal dysfunction in the spine, providing numerous “clinical pearls” along the way.  
 
The book has already been well received and continues to garner recognition from the manual therapy world. We recently sat down with the authors to get their take on the unique value of its content, and here’s what they had to say.
