Excerpt from A Manual of Therapeutic Exercise and Massage: Designed for the Use of Physicians, Students and Masseurs

This book has been written to fill the need for a work on the therapeutic use of exercise and massage. While the value of these methods is generally conceded, it is equally certain that they are not yet used in practice to the extent they deserve. Because of the general neglect of these important therapeutic resources many patients who appreciate their value find their way into the hands of quacks or incompetent persons.

The correct indications for and applications of exercise and massage require not only a thorough knowledge of the anatomy and physiology, but also a good understanding of the underlying pathological conditions. It is this knowledge, together with sound judgment, that makes the competent masseur - the technic is of secondary importance; similarly the best surgeon is not necessarily the one who develops the best operative facility, but the one who combines iskill with sound judgment. Throughout the book it has been the foremost intention of the writer to bring out this point as clearly as possible.

In most of the conditions treated in this book the clinical pathology has been omitted for obvious reasons; only those affections have been discussed at length which the author's daily experience has shown are not commonly understood, such as certain lesions of the shoulder, the lumbosacral and sacro-iliac regions, and a few others.
