This book would not have been possible without the help and encouragement of Janab Segu S. Jamaludeen, Secretary and Correspondent of AMS group of Educational Institutions. He has provided best environment and support for writing this textbook “Treatment of Neck and Back Pain”.
I would like to express my thanks to all my teachers who gave me valuable suggestions to finish this project.
Dr Francis Lillypushpam, Senior Physiotherapist has made helpful comments on sections of the manuscript, which has helped to shape up this text.
In fact, I have learned from my students, patients and teaching staff in clinics for many stimulating discussions in Back Pain over a year. However, thorough practical knowledge of back pain could be used to understand and treat patient's problems.
I express my thanks to Mr M Govindan, Dr M Ramesh Babu (PT), Dr J Julie Sangeetha (PT), Dr Sangeetha Mohan (PT) and Dr KG Smitha (PT) and our teaching staff who helped and made this possible.
