A Massage Therapist's Guide to Lower Back and Pelvic Pain describes in detail the background to the evolution of "non-specific” backache as well as the assessment and treatment methods ideal for use in combination with massage therapy, deriving from physical therapy, osteopathic, and chiropractic sources. The book describes these methods individually and then integrates them into a detailed description of a massage session focusing on the person with backache. This unique book takes care to consider the needs of the massage therapist, who previously may have had to adapt his/her own methodology from descriptions aimed at other health care professionals.

An accompanying website demonstrating the palpation and treatment methods supplements the text.
