Handbook of Clinical Chiropractic Care
The second edition of the Handbook of Clinical Chiropractic Care is a concise, quick-access handbook that covers the more common conditions seen in a chiropractic practice. Where possible, An evidence-based approach is presented, but it must be understood that a purely evidence-based practice is impossible to achieve in any form of health care. Instead the clinician must use the best available evidence, clinical experience, and a "pinch" of intuition to manage his/her patients.

When you need fast, up-to-date information on specific treatment techniques such as orthopedic testing and contraindications for manipulation, or information to assist in analyzing test results, this is the first place to turn.
