Evidence-Based Manual Medicine

After Martha's post, I drove out to our Mesa campus and checked out the "EBM and Manual Medicine book" -- it is AWESOME. It effectively combines anatomy, pathophys, research, controversy, and technique in one manual. As a first edition, it has some flaws, but I think it does what the FOM was meant to do, in a much more user-friendly arrangement. It's perfect for teaching -- or anything that requires presenting manual medicine in a credible, communicable way. Also, It comes with a DVD that outlines many of the techniques described in the book. I'm purchasing a personal copy ASAP.

The book is Evidence-Based Manual Medicine by Michael Seffinger, DO and Raymond Hruby, DO, illustrated by Dr. Kuchera.

I'll also be adding this to the Recommended Reading page on the site with the next update.
