Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron M. McBride, MPT, ATC (HealthSouth Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center)
Description: This is a third edition text designed for the conservative treatment of low back pain. The editors offer a wide variety of explanations and techniques for various treatments.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide philosophies of treating low back pain by combining contemporary sciences with clinical practice and application. The editors address the quandary many therapists become lost in when dealing with involved low back pain patients, especially those of a chronic nature.
Audience: The text is written with physical therapists specifically in mind. In fact, any population dealing with low back involved patients would benefit. The list of contributors includes some of the finest names associated with diagnosis and treatment of low back pain, such as Robin McKenzie.
Features: By providing excellent illustrations and background information on various pathologies, the editors give appropriate depth for both students and master clinicians alike. The chapters on anatomy and mechanism of injury and pathomechanics are very descriptive. The illustrations and diagrams are quite helpful in providing visual descriptions of somewhat complicated concepts.
Assessment: I feel this book is a significant asset to the field, especially for the physical therapist for whom it was written. The editors utilize and offer descriptions of various pathologies and their mechanical diagnosis and management. Not only do they assist in understanding the physical aspects to low back pain, they also spend time addressing the psychological aspects as well.
