Lateral Curvature of the Spine and Pelvic Deviations
By Richard Barwell, F.R.C.S.
Published 1905. Scan of book on CD-ROM in pdf format, 114 pages with illustrations.
THOUGH appearing as a sixth edition of my earlier work on "Lateral Curvature of the Spine," this book is entirely. rewritten, and sets forth certain facts, which I discovered in and about 1890, which constitute the key to the problem of spinal curvature, and which form the rational basis to effective treatment.
In dealing with this last subject, it was necessary to point out how and why many forms of treatment hitherto and still used are frequently misdirected ; some of these are mentioned in Chapter IV., but I must beg my professional brethren not to commute criticism of methods into censure of men, which they probably will be less disposed to do when I frankly confess, that before my detection of certain pelvic malpostures I also erred in believing, that treatment must be directed solely to the spine.
Since that period I have expended much time and thought in devising and testing modes of treatment, aimed directly at the deformirig influence of certain pelvic malpostures, at strengthening weakened and at elongating shortened muscles. Also I have advocated certain methods of so specializing treatment, that it may really affect the part of the anatomy aimed at, and may not encroach on other parts where its influence can only be injurious.
The result of much labour is given as succinctly as is compatible with facile reading and comprehension in the ensuing pages.
