in neuropathy, and many acts of encouragement and kindness were always
an inspiration, this book is respectfully dedicated.
PREFACE TO THE FIRST, SECOND, THIRD AND FOURTH EDITIONS.
This little book
on Endo-Nasal, Aural and Allied Techniques was written for physicians who
are interested in the manipulative form of treatment for conditions affecting
the respiratory tract and its appendages.
It was written to
enable them to acquire, with as little preliminary reading as possible, the
rudimentary facts which are essential to appreciate properly what is heard
and seen in the actual work of the class room. The reception of these techniques
by the physicians of all schools who have sat in the classes has been of great
gratification to the author.
PREFACE TO FIFTH AND SIXTH EDITIONS.
The effort has
been made to state the subject concisely and briefly without sacrificing
accuracy or any of the essentials. The only techniques given here are those
that have been thoroughly tested in office practice and found by the author
to have been efficacious.
In all editions,
we have endeavored to retain the brevity and conciseness of the previous
editions. In this edition, however, we have added much new information with
photographs of the moves of the techniques as far as it is possible to do
so. There are some novel suggestions far from the accepted theories of body
mechanics that no doubt will create debate, but thus do we move from the
"sit tight" policy of bigotry to that of more knowledge.
The present volume is an effort to systematize and classify a group of techniques
that would give manipulative physicians a logical method of approach to a field
of unlimited therapeutic possibilities which has been long neglected by them
because of the trend to specialization. The writer has met thousands of manipulative
physicians in his lecture tours, and wishes to acknowledge to all of them his
deep sense of gratitude not only for their aid in developing these techniques,
but also for the friendly manner in which both he and the techniques were received.
The acceptance of this work has been most gratifying,
and the orders for additional copies compelled us to issue still another
We have maintained the brevity and conciseness of
former editions with here and there some changes to bring the material
up to date.
We shall never cease to be grateful to the hundreds
of physicians who have been so kind in aiding to make this work worth while.
