Practical, Comprehensive and Up-To-Date!

How a physician understands, interacts, and communicates with a patient with musculoskeletal low back pain will have a powerful impact on the course of care and outcome, regardless of the diagnosis. The authors of the new second edition of Low Back Pain provide a unique and valuable perspective on the non-surgical management of this potentially disabling condition.

The book is based on a biopsychosocial model for evaluation and management, with the recognition that there is more to a person with low back pain than just a body with a biomechanical problem involving bones, discs, nerves, and muscles. Inherent in this model is viewing patients within the context of their environment, including their personal life and work, which can significantly influence both illness and recovery. While providing the latest available scientific data regarding back pain diagnosis and management, this new edition also provides specific information regarding biopsychosocial management that promotes functional recovery.
  • Get help for dealing with patients with an atypical presentation of low back pain.
  • The section on chiropractic treatment will assist non-chiropractic professionals in understanding and assessing efficacy and quality of chiropractic care of patients.
  • This book will assist in decision making with regard to activity and work capability by providing specific recommendations on making restrictions time contingent, rather than pain contingent.
