Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Christopher B. Roecker, D.C.(Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This seventh edition provides updated research and information on the advances in diagnosis and management of low back pain conditions.
Purpose: As much remains unknown in the area of low back pain management, evidence-based books on the topic are needed to help clinicians provide the best treatment to their patients. This book incorporates recent peer-reviewed literature on the diagnosis and management of low back pain and radicular pain conditions.
Audience: It is suitable for the intended audience of practicing chiropractic physicians, but it also is a wonderful reference for any practitioners involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with nonsurgical spinal pain conditions, as well as students or residents training in this field.
Features: The book provides a summary of diagnostic and management options for low back pain and radicular pain conditions commonly encountered by primary care and conservative management practitioners. It facilitates incorporating the information into clinical practice with a variety of supplementary figures, which emphasize diagnostic imaging knowledge and management techniques.
Assessment: Because of its quality and usefulness, this book rivals any in the area of low back pain diagnosis and is second to none in the area of conservative management of low back pain and radicular pain conditions. It provides a wonderful balance of clinical insight and recent scientific advances in the field of conservative spine care. I would recommend this book to anyone in the field of spine care, particularly those interested in spinal manipulative therapy.
