OPTP, Minneapolis, announces the publication of Integrating Manual Therapy & Pain Neuroscience, a new book written by four renowned physical therapists and pain neuroscientists, including Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD.

This first-of-its-kind text uses clinical examples and recent research to demonstrate that manual therapy and pain neuroscience are not mutually exclusive; they work better together.

Broken down into 12 principles, the book delves into concepts like clinical reasoning, nociception, neuroplasticity, therapeutic alliance, psychosocial factors, and additional treatments to complement hands-on therapy—showing how the implementation of these concepts can contribute to successful outcomes.

Written for students and practicing clinicians alike, this book can help practitioners meet the many challenges modern therapists face while improving patient outcomes, according to OPTP.
