About the Author:

David H Peterson, DC, Chiropractic Science Center, Western States Chiropractic College, Portland, OR; Thomas F Bergmann, DC, Editor-in-Chief, Chiropractic Technique, Mendota Heights, MN; and Dana J Lawrence, DC, Director, Publications & Editorial Review, The National College of Chiropractic, Lombard, IL

Review:

"For students of chiropractic and manual therapy, Bergmann (chiropractic methods, Northwestern Health Sciences U.) and Peterson (chiropractic sciences, Western States Chiropractic College) outline the basic principles needed to evaluate, select, and apply specific procedures, with an emphasis on thrust techniques. They cover chiropractic history, anatomy and biomechanical principles, joint examination, manipulative mechanics, the application of mobilization and traction, and adjustive techniques for the spine, pelvis, and extremities. This edition has updated and expanded content on joint assessment, joint subluxation/dysfunction, adjustive mechanics, and sacroiliac articulation, and updated and modified procedures, and it names each of the adjustive procedures following patterns used by the US National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Access to how-to videos of about 300 procedures is provided online."
