Low Back Pain

"This text is prepared for the practicing chiropractic physician. To bring him or her to the maximum literature research in the world of spinal chiropractic adjusting, to diagnose spinal manipulation conditions, to diagnose pathologies causing spine pain that require other care, and to encompass flexion distraction decompression manipulative care for those with spine pain. This text is written to make the chiropractor the best nonsurgical spine doctor available. All profits from this text are donated to chiropractic research of flexion distraction adjusting. The seventh edition of this textbook is built upon the peer-reviewed literature and research studies in the diagnosis and treatment of low back and radicular pain, focusing on the nonsurgical chiropractic adjusting methods. The last edition was published in 1999, and this text is the last 11 years of updated material on the subject of low back pain. What are the principle advances in this subject in this time period? We have seen the progressive acceleration in surgical care with the artificial disc replacements; drastic increases with bolt, plate, and screw fixation, cage fusion; and anterior and posterior interbody fusion. The outcomes of these procedures are not outstanding with debate over their use. At the same time, there is an attempt to decrease invasive spine surgery via arthroscopy, intradiscal electrothermal coagulation, anti-inflammatory intradiscal injections, stem cell regeneration, percutaneous discectomy, rhizotomy, and steroid injections. All of these surgical interventions have demonstrated, as shown in this textbook, to have limitations on positive outcomes while encouraging nonsurgical forms of care to prevent, delay, or replace surgical care"--Provided by publisher.
