Editorial Reviews

E. Quinn Regan
This is a fourth edition text on managing low back pain. The last edition was published in 1992. The purpose is to provide orthopedic surgeons with a good approach to people with low back pain. This a worthy objective that has been met by the authors. The text is mainly written for orthopedic surgeons, but is also good for any medical practitioner who treats low back pain. The text begins with anatomy and basic science of the lumbar spine. The clinical presentation and treatment options are addressed. The unique feature of the text is the presentation of the concepts of Kirkaldy and Willis -- the three phases of degeneration: dysfunction, instability, and stability. The shortcoming is that this is not a totally encompassing text on the lumbar spine; only a a small amount of time is dedicated to dealing with surgical interventions. However, this is an excellent text for an overview of the nonoperative treatment options and of instances when surgery may or may not be considered. The fourth edition continues the tradition of providing a primer or basic text for practitioners treating low back pain. Both the physiological and psychological problems in patients who have low back pain are addressed. I believe this text is a must read for any practitioner who treats low back pain from an operative or nonoperative perspective and who wishes to develop a good overview in managing patients with low back pain.
