Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This book provides a general overview of the anatomy of the lower back, along with discussions of posture, lifting, exercise, and common syndromes that affect the lower back. The approach is from the perspective of a physical therapist, and the book is written at a rather fundamental level.
Purpose: The purpose is to help the therapist explain to the patient, by means of illustrations, how the spine functions, what may have gone wrong in the patient's particular case, and how the patient can play a role in recovery and prevention of occurrence. The book therefore provides a rationale to aid the therapist in explaining to the patient the interventions to be used in his or her specific case.
Audience: This is directed primarily at physical therapists, but it may also be of interest to chiropractors and osteopaths. It is essentially for practicing therapists, not for students.
Features: There are seven chapters in this text, covering functional anatomy, syndromes, posture, lifting, exercises, children and teenagers, and pregnancy. There are more than 200 illustrations to demonstrate most points made in text. The references are scant but pertinent and up-to-date; however, they fail to cite any chiropractic or osteopathic literature. The book is attractively put together, but it is really directed at the patient, because the information is rather basic in nature.
Assessment: As noted above, the real audience of this text is the patient; the information is basic and not particularly in-depth. The material covered in this book is fundamental to any therapist practicing any form of manual therapy; thus, it leaves a great deal of information out. However, as an aid to developing methods to discuss interventions with patients, there are a good number of pointers to be gleaned by reading through this book. It does indeed succeed in helping to explain to the patient the reasons for the interventions used in his or her case.
From the Publisher
"This text will become an essential manual for all back care practitioners involved in back schools or advising and treating patients with back and neck problems. Jnal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women s Health, February 1995 Jrnl of Association of Chartered Physios, February 1995 Jnal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women s Health, February 1995 Jrnl of Association of Chartered Physios, February 1995 Overall the book is well suited to its purpose, and offers clinicians a readable, well illustrated manual for everyday use with patients. It would therefore be a valuable addition to physiotherapy departments and I would especially recommend it to physiotherapists new to the speciality of spinal disfunction."Physiotherapy, September 1995
