Editorial Reviews

Dana J. Lawrence
This book presents a comprehensive discussion of basic rehabilitation principles and practices and their integration into chiropractic practice. The emphasis is upon the model developed by the Eastern European pioneers Karel Lewit and Vladimir Janda, both of whom have prepared material for this book. The book follows a bit of an evolutionary approach, first by describing basic principles, then by discussing assessment and diagnostic procedures, and finally by providing an exhaustive amount of material on functional restoration. There is also material on patient education and the psychological issues that can arise in rehabilitation practice. The basic purpose is to discuss the basic skills of rehabilitation, integrate them into standards of care as used by chiropractors, and apply them to the functional pathologies of the motor system. The emphasis is therefore upon the clinical practice and application of these skills. The primary audience is practicing chiropractors and chiropractic students. This book will also be of use to physiatrists, orthopedists, physical therapists, and anyone else with an interest in either rehabilitation or manual medicine. One of the great features of this book is its ample illustration. There are literally hundreds of photographs and figures, which are used to demonstrate all the procedures that are discussed. A number of clinical algorithms are also presented. The references are more than adequate and completely up-to-date. Dr. Liebenson has done an admirable job of bringing together some of the most renowned people in rehabilitation practice. In addition to the contributions by Lewit and Janda, there is material in this text by Ludmila Vasilyeva,William Kirkaldy-Willis, Robin McKenzie, Vert Mooney, and Howard Vernon. Thus, the material is both comprehensive and clinically oriented. The two major sections in this book concern assessment of musculoskeletal function and functional restoration, and both are very well done. Assessment focuses largely upon outcomes assessment, especially as it applies to private practice. The section on functional restoration is directed toward the use of procedures in chiropractic practice; thus, the role of manipulation is not overlooked, and the author allows for some differences in approach to be discussed. This is a very good book.

Practical how-to manual for chiropractors integrates fields of chiropractic, myofascial therapy, and exercise into a cost-effective approach for treating spinal disorders. Thoroughly covers functional assessment, manual resistance techniques, stabilization exercises, and patient education. Identifies and discusses psychosocial factors that might predispose patients to a disability, chronic pain, and treatment dependency. Contributors are practitioners from various disciplines.
