Editorial Reviews

A. Wood Weller
This book describes the historical and scientific basis and ""hands-on"" specifics of chiropractic technique for the spine and extremities. It provides in-depth investigation of assessment and treatment for manipulable ""lesions."" This book fills a void in the literature of manipulative technique, and more specifically in the chiropractic literature base relating to technique, providing a rational basis for choice and application of specific adjustive procedures for spinal and extremity articulations. This book is an appropriate textbook for students and practitioners. Students will benefit from the organization of how to find, assess, and specifically treat articular lesions. Practitioners will find the biomechanical and diagnostic level of investigation developed in the book to be of value in modifying technique for varied situations that present themselves in day-to-day practice. This book contains very high quality illustrations and drawings as well as photographs depicting each adjustive technique. The combination of photograph and drawing for each technique provides a very good understanding of contact points and direction of impulse for correction of the joint being discussed. The references used in the text represent the state of the literature as it relates to manipulative therapy and current concepts in biomechanics. The book is very easy to use. The high quality of illustrations, general layout, and typeface chosen make it comfortable to both leaf through and read in depth. This book is long overdue in the chiropractic profession. It is extremely relevant and very useful to anyone engaged in the art and science of manipulative therapy. It provides a basis for manipulativetherapy and specific technique application not currently available. At the professional school level, its usage will expand current curricula via the depth and breadth covered in a single text. Practitioners will also benefit from the breadth of adjustive techniques it contains. It is a text that comes highly recommended.
