The ailing spine: a holistic approach to rehabilitation
This book considers the broad spectrum of factors that can help or hinder the rehabilitation process for patients with spinal ailments. The emphasis is on viewing the patient and his life style as a whole. For example, his work, surroundings, leisure, sports activities, and diet are given equal weight as his history of illness and the physical diagnosis. Various therapeutic measures are then discussed. These feature manual medicine, acupuncture, physical therapy, neural therapy and dietary rehabilitation. In painting a complete picture of the patient, his ailment and the treatment possibilities, this book highlights many aspects that are often neglected in other literature.
