By Steven C. Eggleston, DC

Title:    Objection Overruled

Category: Patient Education

Author:   Mark Hengen, DC,
East 2601 Upriver Drive
Spokane, Washington 99207
(509) 922-4458

Publication: 23-pages, Softbound

Ten common objections about chiropractic are presented and explained in this brief patient education tool. Dr. Hengen presents 10 different essays to answer such criticisms as: "Once you go to a chiropractor, you have to keep going back"; "MDs don't like chiropractors"; "Chiropractors can't help my problem"; and "My mother was hurt by a chiropractor." Each essay is 400-600 words and presents a logical argument against these fallacies. The writings could have been most concise and to the point, but there are several good ideas presented that you can use when encountering these objections.

Title: Topographical and Motion Palpation of the Axial Skeleton Category: Student Education Author: Kent L. Boyer, DC Publication: 113-Pages, Softbound Publisher: Halo Books, P.O. Box 2529, San Francisco, CA 94126 (415) 981-5144

Remember your first day of palpation class when finding the transverse process of the atlas seemed impossible? This clever book has pictures of bony and muscular landmarks with dots and arrows to show the beginner how to find them. Although not for the experienced practitioner, this would be valuable for first-term students to get them through that introductory palpation class. Eggleston Rating: 6


Title: Chiropractic Care for the Pregnant Patient 1ategory: Patient Care Author: Steve Troyanovich, DC, and David J. Hansen, DC Publisher: Advanced Chiropractic Publications, 112 Boeykins Place, #1B, Normal, Illinois 61761 Publication: 64-Pages, Softbound

The title of this book specifically contains the words "...For the Pregnant Patient." One would expect from the title that most readers already understand the "Chiropractic Care ..." portion and want specific information on treating gravid women. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Of the eight chapters, only four have anything to do with pregnant patients. The other four are rather cumbersome, although quite scientific, and explain spinal biomechanics, posture, and pain modulation. Drawings throughout the first three chapters depict males and nonpregnant females. When we finally see a pregnant woman in Chapter 4, the photos look like fifth generation xerox copies. While I was looking forward to a book on the care of pregnant patients, the book did not deliver.
