Gross motion testing( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program illustrates testing in man for gross motion patterns of general areas as opposed to specific joints, demonstrating simple methods for obtaining subjective impressions. The entire program lacks objectivity of measurement. Repetition of simple gross motion, such as head and neck flexion, inaccurate portrayal of pelvic and spinal motion; and superficial range of joint motion all detract from the educational value of the production. Graphics and models are effectively employed to portray subjective end points, but no mention is made of degrees and normal end points. The presentation would be greatly strengthened by examples of abnormal cases. This material is recommended for limited use only
Introduction to soft tissue technique( Visual )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This module is a highly subjective demonstration of basic techniques of soft tissue mobilization. While the techniques are, as a rule, practiced by a physical therapist, this program depicts a physician performing the manipulations. The indications are unspecified and terms such as "sense of the tissue" receive no clarification. Although diagrams, background studies, and x-rays substantiate some of the program's contentions, a good deal of supplementary data with the support of graphic or anatomic illustrations are necessary to produce an objectively convincing argument for the effectiveness of these techniques. This program is recommended for limited use only
