Launched in 1983, this remarkable presentation of the Cyriax method was an immediate success. Valuable information previously hidden in large and unwieldy textbooks suddenly became easy to understand. Using a streamlined text with superb sequences of full colour illustrations, it allowed the reader rapid access to the essence of Cyriax's unique approach to soft tissue lesions.
But orthopaedic medicine continues to develop, and the Cyriax school is playing an active part in this process. As a result, many changes to theory and practice have taken place since the 'Illustrated Manual' was first conceived. To reflect these, the new edition has required substantial revision and although the basic style and structure remain the same, both text and illustrations have been completely overhauled.
For the text of this new edition, numerous improvements and supplementary details have been included to give a greater recognition of alternative diagnoses and treatments. Different treatment approaches and new conditions are considered, doubtful areas clarified, statements refined, new technology and equipment assessed, and terminology updated. Sports injuries now account for a high proportion of problems in the orthopaedic medicine clinic and are given greater prominence. The result is a broader, more balanced account, less dogmatic than its predecessor, in keeping with the discriminating approach of the 1990s.
The illustrations are an integral part of the presentation and they too have been given their share of attention. Photographs of the examination sequences have been replaced by drawings, and now often include clear directional indicators showing at a glance each successive movement. Many of the illustrations have been re-sized for clarity, and additional drawings and photographs added. The effect is to strengthen the visual impact while focussing attention on the essential features.
This fully updated and re-designed edition remains the indispensable guide to the Cyriax method. No further recommendation will be needed for those who are familiar with the first edition. Anyone new to the book will find no better way of learning about the approach and technique of one of the acknowledged modern masters of orthopaedic medicine.
