Product Description


"The balance between writing a textbook and simply collating a collection of case studies is well met, making this title readable yet without sacrificing detail. Each case is well laid out with diagnostic images and pertinent illustrations and tables."

Format: Hardcover
This book starts by attempting to describe how to take a history examine spinal pain patients with many examples of CT's and MRI's, it then goes into some details on how to deliver a report of your findings. The problem is that I found it quite confusing and unhelpful. The book does assume that you already have a certain amount of knowledge about anatomy, physiology and pathology which I do, however the text at the start of the book is not easy to follow.
The book then goes on to describe real life back pain cases, divided into sections - lumbar, cervical etc. Now I understand that these are supposed to challenging pain syndromes but the cases are laid out in such a way that it is not possible to test your knowledge. He does not give you the information that you need in order to attempt a diagnosis; there is some history but the physical and orthopeadic findings are never in depth. Ultimately every case that I have read so far has been X rayed and most have been sent for CT and/or MRI and these have led to the diagnosis - and the diagnosis is always extremely obscure!
I found that the quality of the images is not great so really you just have to take the authors word for it. In the end I found the cases to be repetitive and I abandoned this book as a study aid which is a shame as it was an expensive book.
