Title: Motion Palpation and Chiropractic Technic

Category: Doctor Education

Authors: R. C. Schafer, D.C., and L. Faye, D.C.
Publication: 418 pages - Hardcover

See pages xx, Parts #T100 for information on how to order

Motion palpation is a fundamental diagnostic tool for most chiropractic doctors. This book is the bible of motion palpation diagnostic procedure. Drs. Schafer and Faye did an outstanding job presenting the summary of knowledge on this subject from the work of Dr. Henri Gillet to Dr. Faye's own research. They present the theories of fixation, joint dysfunction and disease, adjustive thrusts, and treatment protocols.

This work is vitally important to every doctor. Those who regularly use motion palpation will be amazed at how much they can learn by reading the book by one of the masters. With this, you can go to the source.

Dr. Richard Schafer has written extensively and was called upon to assist Dr. Faye in the writing of this book. Dr. Schafer has an outstanding style and organizational method to his writing. He gets to the point. Dr. Faye pioneered motion palpation procedure in the United States. I remember participating as a research subject in one of Dr. Faye's studies while I was a student at LACC. He has done his homework and knows his material.

This is an excellent book. In its 418 pages there are hundreds of photos and detailed drawings showing you how to set up and perform these adjustments. The chapters are well-organized and the index is very helpful. Even the cover is a beautiful maroon, simulated leather, with gold, embossed printing. This is a first-class book in content and style.

There are some books that price is no object. This is one of those books. Were it not for our licensing laws, one could almost become a chiropractor just by studying this one book. The value is pretty high and far outweighs the cost of the book.

Perhaps you are not yet sure whether I like this book, so I will say here for the record: I like the book. I went through chiropractic college learning motion palpation as the primary diagnostic procedure. I sat in the audiovisual department for hours watching Dr. Faye's videotapes. When I saw this had been put in textbook form I was very pleased. After reading it, I must say it lived up to every expectation.
