Dr. Liebenson's book is an excellent compilation of research and expert opinion for the care of spinal and extremity related disorders. It gives the practitioner a resource to utilize for difficult as well as simple cases of musculoskeletal dysfunction that plagues millions of americans each year. The guidelines of care move from the passive (traditional chiropractic manipulation and physiological therapeutics) to the active (progressive rehabilitive exercises and patient education) in order to restore optimal functional mobility to the patient. As a senior chiropractic intern, I have taken a rehabilitation course at Logan College of Chiropractic that uses this text as its core reference. Additionally, I have integrated the scientific principles given and have seen my patients respond well. This text is a must for the chiropractic physician.
I have the new version of this book. I bought this edition to keep as a second copy in the office. It is a good book and still current, and great for keeping int he office to show patients or review stuff that slips from the memory as the years trundle on.
