Handbook of Clinical Chiropractic Care, 2nd Edition

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.

This is a handy reference that provides a library of practical information in a single volume! 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. Absolutely packed with charts, tables, and algorithms for quick reference. >> Order now
