The most comprehensive, extensively illustrated book focusing on chiropractic principles, diagnosis, and treatment. A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011! 5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This is the third edition of one of the chiropractic profession's most important and influential books. It is a compendium of hard scientific knowledge about all aspects of chiropractic, from the social and historical to the clinical and research oriented. It is a significant expansion from the second edition, which was published in 1992, quite some time ago. It contains five major sections: Introduction to Principles of Chiropractic, Introduction to Chiropractic Theory, Introduction to the Clinical Examination, Introduction to Specific Treatment Methods, and Introduction to Management of Specific Disorders....The book exceeds all expectations the author had for it.... I consider this the most essential of all chiropractic texts, one that all chiropractors should obtain."-- Doody's Review Service Developed as the core textbook for the chiropractic student and as a professional reference, this text presents theory, philosophy, and practice principles of chiropractic. Covers both traditional and newer chiropractic techniques as well as the clinical exam and management of specific disorders.
