Overview

This one-of-a-kind text describes the specific anatomy and neuromusculoskeletal relationships of the human spine, with special emphasis on structures affected by manual spinal techniques. A comprehensive review of the literature explores current research of spinal anatomy and neuroanatomy, bringing practical applications to basic science.
  • A full chapter on surface anatomy includes tables for identifying vertebral levels of deeper anatomic structures, designed to assist with physical diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the spine, as well as evaluation of MRI and CT scans.
  • High-quality, full-color illustrations show fine anatomic detail.
  • Red lines in the margins draw attention to items of clinical relevance, clearly relating anatomy to clinical care.
  • Spinal dissection photographs, as well as MRIs and CTs, reinforce important anatomy concepts in a clinical context.
  • Revisions to all chapters reflect an extensive review of current literature.
  • New chapter on the pediatric spine discusses the unique anatomic changes that take place in the spine from birth through adulthood, as well as important clinical ramifications.
  • Over 170 additional illustrations and photos enhance and support the new information covered in this edition.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Embryological, gross anatomical, histological, and physiological aspects of the spine, spinal cord, and ANS are comprehensively discussed and related to the pathophysiology encountered in clinical practice. Extensive use of illustrations, clinical vignettes, photographs, radiologic images, and well-organized tables enhances the presentation and eases the aforementioned application of current anatomical knowledge in the clinical setting. The text is well-written and organized in short paragraphs separated by a logic sequence of headings and subheadings to maintain oversight to the reader.

I highly recommend this work to all students in the medical field and health care providers involved in the care of patients with disorders of the spine and spinal cord."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This update of a book on spinal anatomy with a focus on both neuroanatomy and the autonomic nervous system adds new illustrations that include advanced imaging of the spine and related structures, along with significant new references. It also includes two appendixes, one related to joints of the spine and the second to terms relating to pain.
Purpose: There are three objectives for this book: to provide an accurate and complete text for students studying the spine, spinal cord, and autonomic nervous system; to serve as a reliable reference for spinal anatomy and related neuroanatomy for clinicians and researchers; and to help bridge the gap between the basic science of anatomy and the applied anatomy of clinical practice. These are important goals, notably in a changing teaching environment where anatomy has to meet clinical objectives as well as basic science objectives.
Audience: The book has three main audiences: healthcare professionals, anatomists, and students. It will find use across disciplines and professions, and could serve as a good source of anatomical information even for practitioners. Drs. Cramer and Darby have taught anatomy for many years and Dr. Cramer is a leading basic science researcher who can combine his clinical knowledge with his basic science knowledge.
Features: This updated edition adds in many new figures that demonstrate underlying radiographic and imaging anatomy of spinal structures, in recognition of the shift in teaching anatomy from stressing rote memorization to focusing on integrating clinical information with basic science knowledge. The book includes hundreds of high-quality illustrations, many in color, and printed on a heavy gloss paper — very well done.
Assessment: This book is extremely well done, and it should find use across professions because it recognizes how anatomy can effectively be taught. The focus on the spine means this will continue to be well used in the chiropractic profession, which is where the authors are based. They have done an admirable job developing this new edition.
