Articles of Interest

This page is devoted to the articles, usually of current and recent publication, which have landed somehow on my desk. As part of the Master in Manipulative Physiotherapy that I completed at La Trobe University, many articles were read as part of a literature review that was part of the curriculum. Because of this, and other reading that I pursue, I will be adding articles of interest.

Enjoy the articles and should you want to give the articles a critique, feel free to let me know and I would be happy to append to the listed article your views and comments.

Acknowledgement goes to MPA for distributing a great many references via their supplement to the MPA News. Thanks!
