Broken down into 100 conditions, the bulleted text and helpful illustrations provide a clinical roadmap for diagnosing and treating spine disorders commonly and not so commonly encountered in daily practice. Every entry features description, etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, risk factors, clinical features, natural history, diagnosis, red flags, treatment, prognosis, helpful hints, and suggested readings on two facing pages for easy access to key information at a glance.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Hillary Nack, DO (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: Organized alphabetically, this quick reference guide to common spine disorders outlines each one in 2-page fact sheets.
Purpose: It is intended as a reference to keep busy clinicians up to date with the latest information on the spine and help them be more efficient.
Audience: The primary audience includes practitioners in general rehabilitation, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, and residents. However, the book also could be helpful for primary care physicians.
Features: The book covers a broad spectrum of spine disorders, encompassing areas such as rheumatology, sports medicine, neurology, and spinal cord injury, that are seen in general rehabilitation settings. It also lists mimicking conditions to look out for. Each topic is covered in two pages of bulleted information. The information is presented in sections such as description, etiology, and clinical features. I found the epidemiology, prognosis, and helpful hints sections most helpful.
Assessment: This is a great quick reference for common spine disorders. It gives busy clinicians access to relevant facts so they don't have to take time during a busy clinic to thumb through textbook chapters or journals and/or search the Internet. It allows them to provide patients with information more quickly and ultimately become more efficient. However, it does not replace textbooks or journal articles that will cover each topic in greater depth. It does serve its purpose well as a quick reference.
