Product Description

Review

Chiropractic Journal of Australia, December 2004
"Waddell's biopsychosocial model provides a most appropriate context in which clinicians of all hues may best address the problem. There is a more empathetic view with the patients's perspective. This second edition is a nice follow-up." --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
A wonderful book if your interest concerns the symptoms, the outcomes and the statistics, but is does nothing to address the fundamental cause of simple backache and for that reason is no better than most other publications on the same subject. In otherwords it is like treating a flat tyre by adding some air and not recognising that the basic cause is a hole in the tyre. Mr Angus Brazenall - practitioner

Format: Hardcover
The coverage of low back pain given in this book is an honest description of what science really shows us about back pain. Indeed, there has been a revolution in thinking over the nature, causes and management of back pain, and the book shows how many previously held views were erroneous. All health professionals will find much to learn and use here.

Format: Hardcover
A comprehensive account of the state of play of the evidence-based management of low back pain. This book does not pretend to focus on the pathophysiology of back pain (for that, see Bogduk's 'Clinical Anatomy of the Lumbar Spine and Sacrum') but instead delivers a wealth of information on how the problems caused by back pain should be dealt with by patients, practitioners, purchasers, politicians and the general public. A superb resource.

Format: Hardcover
Although simplistic, and although I don't agree with everything Mr Waddell says, I find this a well researched book on back pains. He does not consider the sacro iliac join a signifiant cause of problems (but who am I to disagree) and I wish he had covered more of the philosophical aspects of pain and pain management, but I feel for most practitioners, this is a fantastic book for covering most of what they need to know about back pains. Well done. A classic text.
