Abstract

The purpose of my recent tour overseas was to study different methods of spinal manipulation, the principles underlying these methods, and the difficulties of and requirements for their adequate teaching. In this paper I shall discuss problems associated with the teaching of manipulation rather than the reasons for using the different techniques of manipulation, although these will necessarily be mentioned. I shall try to show why there is a lack of adequate training in this field, and also how the subject matter can be considered in a way which could overcome all or most of the associated problems.
