Title: Textbook of Clinical Chiropractic

Category: Doctor Education

Editor: Gregory Plaugher, DC

Associate Editor: Mark A. Lopes, DC

Publisher: Williams & Wilkins
428 E. Preston Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

Publication: 525 pages, hardcover textbook

Chiropractic has not traditionally been a science replete with written documentation by its practitioners. Our profession has until recently lagged behind on research and scientific corroboration. Fortunately, this has changed and this book will likely move chiropractic further toward our correct role as the doctors of choice in the 21st century.

The subject is chiropractic practice. There is a wonderful synthesis of philosophy, biomechanics, chiropractic diagnosis, and adjusting technique found throughout the book. Chapters include Spinal Examination; Plain Film Radiography in Chiropractic; Scoliosis; Chiropractic Management of Spinal Fractures and Dislocations; Spinal Management for the Patient with a Visceral Concomitant; Chiropractic Approaches to Pregnancy and Pediatric Care; and Extravertebral Disorders: TMJ, Nasal Septum, Sinuses, and Extremities. Multiple chapters cover the specific sections of the spine and pelvis.

Dr. Plaugher is an assistant professor at Palmer West and director of research at the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society. Dr. Lopes is in private practice in Fremont, California and is a research associate of the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society. There are eight editorial advisors and 19 contributing authors. The book has a very scholarly tone.

Williams & Wilkins is well known for publishing some of the most scholarly books in the profession, and this book is no exception. Textbook of Clinical Chiropractic is another in their long list of "must have" books. It is packed with drawings, diagrams, photographs, x-rays, and advanced images that enhance the text and illustrate the points.

The cost of this book is $75. It is very good value at that price. It you get just ONE idea from it that enhances your abilities as a doctor and your are able to help heal just one person, the cost is insignificant.

Some textbooks are just too detailed to make for pleasurable reading; others lack scientific credibility. This book is a very nice blend. As I first browsed through Textbook of Clinical Chiropractic, I found myself stopping and reading complete sections. It is interesting, well written, and makes for compelling reading. I was very impressed with this book. It is in the same class as those written by Foreman and Croft, and Yochum and Rowe.
