Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Zdravka Zafirova, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a revised and updated English edition of a manual that describes the theory and practical application of neural therapy. The first English translation was published in 1995.
Purpose: This book reviews the theoretical foundation and the conditions and indications for neural therapy. It also describes the relevant anatomy and the specific therapeutic modalities used.
Audience: This manual is intended as an aid to all practitioners who seek a deeper understanding of neural therapy and its application in the practice of medicine. The comprehensive analysis of the principles behind this therapy and the detailed discussion of the techniques make this a valuable resource on the subject.
Features: The book begins with the exploration of the history of neural therapy, theoretical and experimental background, and detailed terminology definitions. The second part is an encyclopedia of conditions and indications for neural therapy with multiple case studies demonstrating the application of this practice. While alphabetical arrangement facilitates location of a known entity, an organ-system approach would have afforded better elucidation of the concepts. The book concludes with comprehensive descriptions and illustrations of various therapeutic techniques. The major shortcoming of the book is the absence of any references, which would allow critical analysis of evidence that may support the conclusions and the recommendations of the manual.
Assessment: This is a valuable source for practitioners seeking to acquire understanding of the theory and familiarity with the practical techniques of neural therapy.
