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
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
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
Pelvic region ( Visual )

Manipulative techniques to assist fluid flow ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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 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
