Assessment of the Body Regions - the Back

A fundamental aspect of bodywork treatment is the assessment of the presenting symptom(s) and aetiology. Understanding the indicators of disease and differentiating between the likely causes entails taking a thorough case history and carrying out a good physical examination.
