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
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
Thoracic region I( Visual )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1982 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manipulative procedures are preceded by a diagnostic examination which focuses attention on the precise location of a segmental dysfunction in the upper thoracic region. Further diagnostic tests detail the specific segmental findings which form a basis for the procedures demonstrated. The principle of a direct technique is explained and three types of direct procedure are shown in sufficient detail to assist the student in practicing for skill development
Lumbar region I( Visual )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principle of introducing motion into the lumbar spine through the lower extremities is discussed in preparation for its use in the diagnosis of segmental dysfunction in the lumbar spine. This principle is further illustrated by the three direct manipulative techniques which are demonstrated
Cervical region I( Visual )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examination of the cervical spine is carried out to determine areas of segmental dysfunction. Specific segmental motion resistances are identified and three direct manipulative techniques are demonstrated to address the segmental dysfunction
Articulatory procedures( Visual )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This module, part of a series on manipulative procedures, demonstrates techniques for correction of articular problems. Emphasis is placed on techniques which serve to locate and identify structures and which are appropriate for static and dynamic inspection for pre-therapy assessment. An excellent selection of patients and positioning clearly depicts the clinical application of these techniques. Potential difficulties and problems are discussed. Specific steps in the procedures and specific uses of force are outlined; however, correlation with the healing process could be more explicitly established. This excellent production seeks to enable the viewer to apply the methods, increase diagnostic ability and expand clinical management. It is recommended for use, particularly in conjunction with laboratory feature
Structural examination local scan( Visual )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scan is the second stage of musculoskeletal diagnosis in which specific problem regions are examined in more detail to determine the location of major dysfunction. Procedures are demonstrated for testing function segment-to-segment throughout costal shoulder, and spinal regions, using a variety of procedures with the subject in different body positions, to detech chemically significant irregularities of segmental function
Manipulative techniques to assist fluid flow( Visual )

2 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soft tissue and articulatory techniques are demonstrated in the cervical and thoracic spinal regions, the anterior cervical compartment and the thoracic cage to improve exchange of interstitial fluids in patients with upper respiratory infections
The Structural examination initial screen( Visual )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procedures appropriate to the initial screening exam are demonstrated throughout all regions of the body in standing, seated and supine positions. Symmetries of structure, tissue and motion are examined in a sequence of visual observation, tissue palpation and gross motion testing. The goal of the initial screen is to alert the physician to the need for further observation of the patient (including subjective and objective tests)
The Upper thoracic region direct manipulative procedures( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This module, part of a series on manipulative procedures, is an excellent introduction to techniques with which to evaluate and modify both acute and chronic structural dysfunction. Inspection, analysis and therapy are correlated with manipulative techniques to demonstrate the clinical management of common musculoskeletal syndromes. Emphasis is placed on muscle spasm and its resolution. Effective photography enhances the excellent demonstration. The theoretical basis of these procedures is not included; a supplementary reference list would be a valuable addition. This program is recommended for use
1998 yearbook : Scientific contributions of William L. Johnston, DO, FAAO( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Structural exam the screen( Visual )

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

(Critical) This represents a very subjective effort to illustrate examination of the musculoskeletal system by observation and palpation. Objective measurement is neglected entirely; accuracy is not assured by means of the subjective techniques and ambigous terminology. Several brief screens are presented which are useful gross tests, but adequate screening for mild degrees of muscle atrophy and scoliosis are omitted. Only normal findings on a healthy are displayed, withoutdiagrams, x-rays, or examples of contrasting abnormalities. Media quality is generally outstanding. Although the objectives of this program are worthwhile, the vague quality of the instruction detracts from its value and the program is notrecommended for use
