Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lawrence, a neurologist with expertise in pain, geriatrics, and sports medicine, has worked with health writer Zucker to produce a balanced program for preventing and coping with osteoarthritis. The authors previously collaborated, with Stanley Jacob, on The Miracle of MSM: The Natural Solution for Pain. Their latest effort discusses the osteoarthritis disease process and how it can be prevented or minimized by exercise, appropriate body mechanics, diet, supplements, and complementary/alternative therapies. Though the book is written at a high reading level, medical terminology is explained in context. The authors include appropriate disclaimers (advice to consult with a physician) and references to scientific literature, as well as information from interviews with alternative therapy experts. Individual case reports are used to illustrate the benefits of health practices advocated throughout the book, and web references are included in the text for additional information on supplements and alternative therapies. This book will appeal to health-conscious readers who have some awareness of the problems created by arthritis, as well as to those in the early stages of arthritis. Recommended for public and consumer health libraries. Margaret Allen, Library Consultant, Stratford, WI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
