Technique Systems in Chiropractic describes and analyses the most common techniques in today's chiropractic. These techniques, sometimes called brand-name or proprietary techniques, each provide a step-by-step protocol for proceeding from examination findings to adjustive and other treatment procedures. Until now, the most readily available descriptions of these techniques have taken the form of articles and seminar advertisements written and distributed by the technique innovators themselves. Major chiropractic technique textbooks frequently list these techniques and some provide synopses, but they do not include the detail really required for readers to come to any serious conclusions about their safety and efficacy. In Technique Systems in Chiropractic, the authors describe over two dozen technique systems in a non-judgmental but critical manner, summarizing the available research and drawing conclusions as to what is actually known about them, compared with what the technique innovators themselves say. KEY FEATURES - Describes and analyses over two dozen of the most widely known and used chiropractic technique systems, in' alphabetical order. - Uses a common format for each technique system, allowing the reader to easily locate desired information and draws comparisons between techniques. - Features chapters on chiropractic terminology, as well as examination and adiustive methods that are common to many technique systems. - Compiles and summarizes the relevant research on each technique, drawing summary conclusions and clearly identifying what is known and what is not known about each. - Explains why there have been so many technique systems in chiropractic, past and present, as this relates to issues of jurisprudence, practice parameters, and guidelines for care. - Explores the interface between chiropractic technique systems and the movement toward evidence-based chiropractic (EBC). Presents demographic information on the rates of utilization of each technique in Canada and the United States. - Includes a glossary of technique-specific terms and jargon. Technique Systems in Chiropractic provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art resource on the different technique systems in common use by chiropractors throughout the world. It will provide students and practitioners of chiropractic with the easy access they need to enrich their knowledge of the vast array of chiropractic technique procedures, whether to whet their interest in pursuing further training in given technique systems, or to incorporate various of these procedures into the more generic, eclectic practice or chiropractic to which many practitioners seem to be drawn at this time. Insurance claims adjusters, attorneys, managed health care and government administrators, students and instructors in allied health professions, individual! interested in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and, of course, current and prospective chiropractic patients will also find this book of great interest.
