Evidence-Based Evaluation & Management of Common Spinal Conditions: A Guide for the Manual Practitioner (Hardcover)
This textbook, with available video purchase, was intended to aid the busy manual care practitioner (chiropractic physician, athletic trainer, physical therapist, etc.) in the diagnosis and management of the most commonly presenting spinal conditions in the manual therapy setting. This book bridges the gap between lengthy and often expensive and difficult to understand research articles, and extensive, all-encompassing textbooks.
The reader will find an easy-to-read, information packed text, offering a more complete quick-reference tool. Orthopedic tests, neurological tests, and some functional testing are covered, complete with statistics. An emphasis is placed on cluster testing, in an effort to make the most accurate diagnoses, as efficiently as possible.
Each condition includes detailed evidence-based treatment. The reader will notice a multimodal conservative treatment approach, as well as descriptions of common medical interventions.
Mastery of this text will prepare the practitioner to offer the latest and most-effective diagnoses and treatment strategies in conservative neuromusculoskeletal healthcare.
