It has been nearly 50 years since the first edition of Maitland's vertebral manipulation text was published in Australia. The Maitland concept is more than just passive mobilisation; it provides no guarantees to cure all problems. However, the approach to the examination, assessment and management of our patients presented in the Maitland concept provides a valuable framework to work within. This workshop revisits the Maitland concept, particularly in light modern notions of evidence based practice.
