Product Description
Horse riders, horse lovers, equestrians everywhere will enjoy this new book from our favorite colorful chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Kamen. Here in his latest animal chiropractic book Dr. Dan explains how any horse owner or stable keeper can take proper care of their animal. These animals are the equine version of a highly trained athlete, he says, and like any athlete they are susceptible to injury. Whether the patient is human or animal, the basic chiropractic technique—manipulating the spine to return misaligned bones—is the same. Kamen says, "If it has a spine, I can work on it." With the aid of a step ladder for height, and a few easy to follow techniques you can learn how to give your animal the proper care he needs to keep him on track. Dr. Kamen has treated racehorses he says, for what he terms, "a nagging backache." With his trademark humor, highly entertaining stories about his adventures as an animal chiropractor, Dr. Kamen has again delivered a book that will be delight to equestrians.A wonderful giftbook for horse-lovers. So ... Happy trails! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great help!
I have had two horse, both with constant chiropractic needs!
This book taught me many things I needed to know to help my horse along myself. I would recommend it to anyone with a horse to better understand the physical needs of their animal, along with the support of a good equine chiropractor and a massage therapist. Horses have back problems too!

4-0 out of 5 stars My horse loves it!
Disclaimer: I do know a few things about horses...
However after a significant injury to my beloved equine he went lame. This book helped me put him back on his game and hitting the trail.

If you ride a lot and I mean lots! You need your horse to stay in the best alignment possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Adjustments help big time
My mare after foaling was out of allignment and draging her right rear leg, The vet checked her and said nothing he could do for her, hopefully she will get herself back in. I tried all the horse chiropractors I could find and none could be reached so I got this book and it has helped so much that the mare is feeling tons better and back out on pasture till her next adjustment.This book explained how to check for the proper allignment on the horse and what to feel for. VERY HELPFUL !!

The Well Adjusted Horse: Equine Chiropractic Methods You Can Do
Very disappointed; dont buy it. It is only 5" x 7" so the pages are very small and you have to flip lots of them to get any thing read. The first 170 are general stuff and there is only 100 pages of instrution. While this sounds like a lot the pages are so small they only contain one paragraph. Diagrams are poor and not clear what is intended. If you want a book that provides basic adjustments for your horse DONT BUY THIS ONE.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book & subject, but with cautionary note
As background to this book review, I have recently taken a class in equine chiropractic from one of Dr. Kamen's friends, Dr. Bill Hampton (see www.EquineSpine.com) who is a retired human chiropractor and previously taught at Palmer College of Chiropractic (www.Palmer.edu).Dr. H. does all the work on Pat Parelli's animals (www.Parelli.com) as well as many other 6-figure horses.(Unfortunately Dr. Kamen no longer teaches these classes on a regular basis.)Dr. Hampton's two day class applies the Gonstead technique & philosophy (www.Gonstead.com) to horses and that course material is paralleled almost exactly in this book.The class comes with two other lab books by Dr. K. (neither are as good as "The Well Adjusted Horse") as well as DVD videos showing the chiropractic techniques and equine anatomy, plus a Parelli DVD.This book does NOT come with the class.

While I disagree with the reviewer who was aghast at this book (mainly the idea of adjusting your own horse) and rated it a 1 (based on their review I doubt they have bought it & read it!), I would agree with them in that you should not just skim over this book and go try it.It is well worth every penny of the $450 for the class, performing each technique on your own horse under an expert's tutelage.I read this book before taking the class and practiced some of the set-ups, but I did not actually adjust a horse until the class.Equine chiropractors in my area tend to use the long-lever technique which can be quite brutal.I had the atlas (C1) of two horses adjusted by a local vet, and he first doped the horse, twitched the lip, used the twitch to leverage the chin over the withers, and impulsed using the twitched lip!It cost $100 per horse for a licensed vet to bloody the lips of my animals like that (although it did fix the subluxation).Beside the fact that with my 5 horses this class will pay for itself in a week, this book and that class teach a much gentler, humane and drug-free method of restoring skeletal and neuro-muscular balance to a horse.

This review really is about this excellent book, not the parallel class, but I believe it's wisest to practice what's in the book after taking the class.Anyone simply interested in learning about equine chiropractic, from human chiropractor to veterinarian to equine masseur/acupuncturist to horse owner, should buy this book and read it!(And yes, Dr. K has corny humor as one reviewer complained - most of it actually is at least marginally funny, but I'll let you read about the pregnant dog yourself).If you want to learn the skills of equine chiropractic, definitely buy this book, but also definitely take the course from Dr. Hampton (www.EquineSpine.com).And tell Bill that Kevyn from Magnolia sent you!

3-0 out of 5 stars The included website is STILL under construction.
A great, priceless book for chiropractic students such as myself. However, the website with videos that accompany the text is still not available. Big mistake. Videos would've been a great compliment to the text as it is a technique book. This will be a definite 5 star rating as soon as the website is up and running.

2-0 out of 5 stars no website videos
Got the book, but the promised website with videos is 'under construction'I'm giving low stars because of this.

5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must-Have" for chiro student
I bought this book on the recommendation of a Palmer instructor.One of the biggest problems I've had is finding another student to practice with.Not only that, if you practice adjusting wrong, you learn wrong and waste a lot of time & effort - not to mention your frustration level goes into orbit...

The instructors in the classes almost make it look too easy.But they've had tons of experience.Things get a lot more confusing when there are so many techniques, what not to do, where to put your hands, how to stabilize, etc etc etc.This book, though pricey, is concise and to the point with lots of photos - where to place your hands, patient positions, doctor stance, lines of drive & correction, multiple techniques, extremities adjusting, and so forth.School is so hectic and there is so much to learn, so many exams & practicals, boards, more exams, internal orals, etc.We already spend a large fortune on tuition.If you're going to invest in your future, why skimp on the few things that can make your adjusting life a bit easier?

My only regret is that I wish I'd bought and started reading this book in my first quarter at Palmer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid book / reference guide
This is a good learning tool for chiropractic students and good reference guide for practicing physicians. A good addition to any DC's library

5-0 out of 5 stars Great text to learn chiropractic technique
I recently graduated chiropractic college and found this book to be one of the main sources to help me learn chiropractic technique.The pictures are great.It shows you how to set up and what the direction of torque is.I used this to study for the National Boards Part 2, 3 and 4.It also has a great section on how show how to translate a PRS-SP Gonstead listing into a National or Medicare listing.This section alone helped me a lot on the boards.I also used the following study guides for the preparing for the Chiropractic National Boards:
National Board of Chiropractic Part II Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers by Patrick Leonardi

National Board of Chiropractic Part IV Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers (Topics: Diagnostic Imaging) Volume 1
National Board of Chiropractic Part IV Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers (Topics: Case Management and Technique Practical) Volume 2 by Patrick Leonardi
These study guides helped me tremendously on the boards.They prepared me for the type of questions to get ready for.They also helped me to know which sections I was weak in before taking the boards.These 5 books helped me greatly in preparation for taking the boards. Buying these books are definitely better than taking over the boards again. ... Read more

I had high hopes to help my dog.I learned nothing.GJC

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book
This book is pretty good for the pet owner that is interested in the well being of their pet.I agree with other reviewers that the jargon used in this book may be difficult to understand if you are not familiar with chiropractic.The only downside to the book is a little bit of ranting and conspiracy theory done by the author that gets a little old, but it is not that big of a downer.Altogether, this is an excellent book and provides some excellent information.

4-0 out of 5 stars Make sure The Well Adjusted Dog is in your reference library
As a show dog owner of an active dog that needed chiropractic care as a pup, I am pleased to know that I can now maintain my dog's health with maintenance adjustments. I have been able to avoid 7 hour round trips to a chiropractic veterinarian by using the simple techniques that Dr. Daniel Kamen illustrates in this book.

Every serious pet owner and veterinarian should have this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm
I was disappointed by this book, and I'm still not exactly sure why. It was definitely informative, and did show several good methods for adjusting my dogs. But it assumed a lot of technical and anatomical knowledge that I'm sure the majority of potential readers does not have, and in fact even with my own fairly in-depth canine knowledge I felt uncomfortable with many of the techniques, especially the one that starts with a disclaimer about how risky it is, says "do not attempt this at home" and then goes right on to detail how to do it.

I guess my impression was that the book was really written by a vet for other vets, under the guise of being aimed at the general public. There is a lot of soapboxing in it, too, about how vets aren't allowed to practice chiropractic and chiropractors aren't allowed to practice on animals... and while this, if still true, definitely sucks - I didn't buy the book to read about it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Goin' to the Dogs
This book has saved my dog's dignity on more than one occasion.There truly is nothing more gratifying than finding the trouble spot, based solely on observing my dog's behavior, and then being able to refer to this wonderful book for stretching and therapeutic techniques that allow my dog to feel wonderful, almost instantly. I have bought this book for at least 3 of my dog owning friends who swear by it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Haiku Review--Chiropractic First
subluxation stinks!

Align the spine for pure health:

Messages run clear!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on chiropractic philosophy
This book is excellent because it tells why adjustments are given--to correct subluxations. It talks about innate and so forth.However, sometimes it's a little scary how some members of the chiro profession worship B.J. and D.D. Palmer.Forms of adjustments have been around for thousands of years from the Romans, Greeks, Chinese.Yes, I know, they were not specific, they did manipulations.Anyway, chiropractic works, it has been working for thousands of years in one form or another.However, it works greater now because now it is specific--targeted to removing nerve interference and correcting the subluxation.I also, highly recommend.

vol 2, isbn: 0974328774
These study guides are awesome for the Part IV exam.The best out there.
Once again Chiropractic First is so important for the chiropractor to be successful in practice.This is because this book gives the reasons why a chiroprator is giving an adjustment, which will make patients realize how important it is to correct a subluxation.

5-0 out of 5 stars For open minded people
If you're locked in the "medical model" of treating sickness and disease, you probably have no interest in chiropractic or any other "alternative" health care system. So, this book won't be for you. But if you are looking for a better way to approach health and wellness and want an easy-to-read introduction to chiropractic, this book is excellent.

If you notice, most of the people who criticized the book hated chiropractic to begin with -- it's not surprising that they rated the book so low. But that's just their prejudice showing.

This book clearly notes that chiropractic isn't a "cure all" == it is merely (merely??) a way for us to allow our bodies to work properly, the way they were meant to work. It's no wonder the medical profession (and its proponents) fear it.

The book is thorough and easy to read, with plenty of real-life cases to prove the points made. A good companion book is "Chiropractic Works."

1-0 out of 5 stars Balderdash!
I have reviewed this book and find that, even today, 108 years after D. D. Palmer "discovered" chiropractic, that Rondberg and many of the other reviewers still cling to this yet to be proven "subluxation" and "nerve flow" theory. No one has yet, to scientifically prove that a "subluxation" in the chiropractic sense, actually exists. There has never been any credible published information concerning the relationship of the "subluxations" to organic disease (skin problems, problems walking, diabetes, heart disorders, liver disease, etc). To publish such a book in today's world is irresponsible and leads false hope to people who need true help. It is true that the human body does have the ability to heal itself, but certainly not by the use of spinal adjustments to correct "subluxations." The book reads like a comic book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Advice Worth Every Penny and More
For two years I've been meeting with MDs to bring them information about what we do at my company, Universal Health Institute.It's been a journey of success and failure, and we've clumsily worked to create a way to present ourselves that makes sense.Dr. Acampora's advice fills in alot of the blank spots, particularly the recommended dialogue and its' context.I like the fact that she went out on a limb and identified different types of doctor personalities as well an approach to communication for each one.I've met with about 60 doctors' offices (and about 125 doctors) over the last two years, and can tell that she's been there and done it. Her advice adds the necessary polish to our New Business Development department, and we are taking it seriously.

The other unbelievable gift of this book is the references she recommends to bring to the physicians.There are several chapters full of relevant references on safety of chiropractic, success at treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches....It's perfect.I am ordering three more books for other staff members and highly recommend you do the same.This is polished, professional and sincere work to help us chiropractic doctors communicate with our medical colleagues.The ultimate goal is to give the patients opportunities to get great chiropractic care. In fact, this book is one that ultimately helps the patient - if we use it.

By the way, Dr. Acampora offers a research service [...] to keep DCs up-to-date on data that will continue to enrich our communications library.I am signing up for three months (300.00) to try it out. If the service is anything like the book I won't be disappointed; I'll be thrilled. In the meantime, I am going to meet with her to see if I can hire her to do some "Sales Training" with my staff!

Thank you Dr. Acampora!

Good Luck!

4-0 out of 5 stars Get over your fear of approaching MDs
I bought this book pre-ordered before it came out.I have read it, but since then I have to admit that I haven't put the ideas into action. One of the reasons is that my practice partner was launching his own campaign to market to medical doctors.

The author of this book is a chiropractor who had a practice that did not thrive nor receive many referrals despite her being located surrounded by medical offices.She then took on a sales job for a pharmaceutical company where she was taught and became accustomed to making sales calls to medical practices. After a couple of years, she then went back into chiropractic practice armed with the knowledge and experience of selling directly to MDs.

One of the challenges that many chiropractors face when approaching a medical practice is having the proper gambit to meet the doctor.This book shows you how to do that effectively. This book will also help you get over the initial fear of approaching a medical business by telling you exactly how solicitors are perceived by doctors and staff.Hint: It's different than with chiropractic doctors and staff. If you were looking to get over your apprehension of merely approaching a medical practice, get this book.

Once you get into a medical office, do you have answers to objections from medical doctors?This book is packed full of answers to objections that are structured diplomatically and will serve to help educate the MD. The author of this book took pains to gather latest research on commonly treated conditions in the chiropractic practice.

This book will not tell you how to spread the innate love to the community, or help you sigh in the comfort of some holistic, alternative philosophy. This book is about getting the bread and butter patients suffering from back pain, neck pain and headaches.And, you'll be getting them from the medical community. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Manual to Start Your Own Profitable Practice
Running a chiropractic clinic requires both patient care and business skills. But chiropractic schools have mostly focused on teaching patient care, often neglecting the development of business skills. The graduating doctors then add the stress of unfamiliar practice life to the financial debt accumulated during their college years.Drs. Reizers fill that knowledge gap and extend exceptional-quality advice to doctors that are about to start their own practice.

Chiropractic office requires doctors to make strategic decisions about selecting specialization, clinic location, negotiating a lease, working with insurance companies, leasing or buying equipment, hiring other doctors, addressing specific kinds of patients, marketing, etc. Drs. Reizers' book teaches doctors how to make such decisions in an organized and systematic way, removing anxiety about the unknown and replacing it with solid knowledge earned during years of both running their own practices and teaching at a chiropractic college. Drs. Reizers did a remarkable job of exploring each topic with great detail and meaningful examples.

In summary, a doctor building a profitable chiropractic office must read Up and Running and return to it often for reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must read for any chiropractor or chiropractic student
This book is great for helping the chiropractor learn what it takes to be successful in practice.I also think that being really grounded in chiropractic philosophy will help tremendously.I recommend the book "Chiropractic First" to help to really get what chiropratic is all about as far as philosophy, which should help in being successful in practice.Anyway, Up and Running is a great book because it will show you how to stay successful and how to think prosperity and not poverty and gives you tips on success in practice.For chiropractic students taking the boards, study the following books. National Board of Chiropractic Part IV Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers, National Board of Chiropractic Part III Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations.These study guides helped me focus on what was important for the boards exams.It definitely is a must buy because it makes you get used to board type questions--less surprises on the test.Once again Up and Running excellent for showing the chiropractor wanting to open a practice on how to succeed and to never give up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple Advice For New Doctors!

Product Description
Chiropractic has become America’s most popular form of alternative health care, offering lasting relief from pain--and many other health benefits--to more than 25 million patients annually.Yet many people still wonder exactly how chiropractic heals, and even experienced patients may be able to get more from their treatments.In this accessible and fascinating book, Dr. Michael Lenarz illuminates the basic principles of spinal health, showing how the body naturally lets go of stored pain and disease once the flow of vital energy has been restored.He also explains:

*Why adjustments keep the communication flowing clearly, quickly, and cleanly
*Why the billion-plus nerve pathways carried by the spine can be the key to a wide range of health problems--from arthritis, headaches, and back and neck pain to chronic fatigue and digestive ailments
*Why many of the health complaints we associate with aging may in fact be the result of old injuries and therefore treatable
*The different techniques of chiropractic, and how to choose the beset chiropractor for you.

PLUS--complete chapters on the diet, exercise, and stress-relief programs that will help you achieve a healthy, vibrant, energized, and pain-free lifestyle--the chiropractic way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What to expect from a chiropractic visit
This book was very well written and was a great learning tool. I think everyone who is seeking chiropractic care should read this book first in order to gain an understanding of chiropractics and to understand the process of chiropratic care.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Straight Scoop.
In Early 1988 I was rear ended by a Semi Truck.I walked away. By that evening I was in a neck brace and stayed in it 2 weeks.

I went to the Medical Docs and they X-rayed, they did this and that, they said soft tissue injury to me a hundred times, but acted like they were looking into a glass darkly.They said lets try this and that too, and so we tried some of their favorite therapies and sent me to a Physical therapist too.They really had no clue and it showed.

At the PT I was doing as I was told, But It still hurt and it was not getting easier... My left arm had lost strength and dexterity despite all the treatment, Worse yet, the PT was not making things better in the real life I was accustomed to living, and I know my story is a lot like other peoples.

Dr. Lenarz became my Chiropractor.He told me that he felt I could be helped and that I would not have to become a slave to a medical procedure forever. He was very adamant about being Thorough and Accurate.He asked me to try his approach to becoming healthy and so I did.He was right.I got my arm's strength and dexterity back, I don't have problems with pain as I did, and I am not a slave to a medical procedure. No Pills. My Spine was helped back to health and I was too, It all works together.

I am not saying I am free of Chiropractors, I may need to check in with them a few times a year but we all go to dentists regularly too don't we?It is all part of staying Healthy.

My only regret in this story is that I moved away from where Dr. Lenarz has his Practice, and didn't persuade him to come along. He is a good, caring Doctor, and one of the straightest shooters you'll meet in any profession.17 years later, thinking back, in my life he still is.You won't go wrong with his book.

Buy His Book, Listen to what he has to say. Take what ever action you like.He won't disappoint.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Lenarz puts in simple terms
Dr. Lenarz cuts through all the bull and gets to the point of chiropractic.He puts it in terms that anyone can understand and doesn't waste words on the chiropractic system of staying healthy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, Inspiring, and Accurate
This is the most definitive book I have read on Chiropractic. Very informative and it hits the nail on the head. It explains many popular misconceptions about Chiropractic. I understand how Chiropratic is much more than what you might hear on the street or worse from your medical doctor. It also explains the role of Chiropractors and how they work with medical doctors and their role is different from medicine instead of opposed to it. Great book!

1-0 out of 5 stars Open your mind to all therapies and think....
I read this to help with pain.As we all know, for "pain go to a chiropracter for help". Well, this got me interested in the scientific evidence to support chiropractic care.The support is not there - basically a faith based treatment for pain, which will work 30% of the time, as good as a sugar pill.There is no scientific evidence to support this book. Nothing helped my pain, so I'll look elsewhere.Sorry I couldn't be positive. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect and Extremely Detailed
Principles and Practices of Chiropractic aim one unusual and still strange matter of alternative medicines, but it can obviously portrait everything from Philosophy to History and matter of Ethics and World-Based Medicine Insitutes.

It perfectly (with lots of details) shows the entire side of a non-well-known Medicine, and becomes a book, in its 3rd Edition, that could be used in Palmer Universities.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chiropractic is Universal
This is an excellent book.It's a must for anyone beginning chiropractic study to know what chiropractic is all about.This book is a good reference for some portions of Chiropractic Principles for Part 2 of the National Chiropractic Boards.

Other books that I recommend for the National Boards include Handbook Clinical Care by Lawrence Wyatt
National Board of Chiropractic Part II Study Guide:Key ReviewQuestions and Answers
National Board of Chiropractic for Part III Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations
Both are by Patrick Leonardi

4-0 out of 5 stars Response to Dr. Chowtowski's "Review"
I found the Dr. Haldemans book to be a good book. Not the greatest, as certain things were a bit dated but all around an interesting read.

I have never seen such an unprofessional response as yours however. Stuffing the ballet on your referenced site for your own book (yes it was pretty obvious), not to mention the overall lack of professionalism in my opinion.No I?m not an expert in medicine but I know a bit more than you about computer/network technology I would presume.

Then again, I'm just a simpleton. I have no particular stake here one way or the next. I'm not a practicing physician. I?m not even in health care. I'm just a technology guy. (You know, a programmer in C, C++, Ada95, LISP etc.) (I also enjoy the study and design of operating systems and Artificial Intelligence applications) I know... so how DARE I question the almighty physician right?

I've also read your review of New York Chiropractic College. Very strange indeed. You would have to be blind not to find the research lab and it's millions of dollars worth of research equipment.

Odd as well that you chose to accost the tour guide with medical questions. I'm sure the tour guide was a fantastic intellectual boost for you. The Dean seemed,(from your account, I've haven't spoken with him yet), to be kinder and simply choose to give you a book and send you on your way. If I had to put up with your attitude I guess I would have done the same.

Funny as many medical doctors I've spoken with are extremely impressed with the academic rigors of NYCC's curriculum. Particularly those at Bethesda Naval Hospital, where students from New York Chiropractic College often intern. But then again what the heck would I know. I'm just a simple technology guy. What hospital do you work at again?

Tell me again about medical school. Do they still teach neat things in medical school like logic/rhetoric/debate? (They did in the military academy I attended.) If they do, then surely you realize that your statement in which you asked the Dean to? (And I am paraphrasing) ? Prove that Chiropractic is not bunk.? is asking to prove a negative.Under the rules of debate and logic, (you did take that right?) it is, of course impossible to prove a negative.

If you lack the ability to research JAMA, JMT or other peer reviewed journals that is your issue, not the Dean of the school.It sounds to me like you?re more jealous of New York Chiropractic Colleges campus than anything else.

Again please excuse me, I'm a simple technology guy, not a super-all-knowing medical doctor, any mistakes here are my own doing and no one else?s and this is just my simple opinion:

What do Chiropractors do?(A very simple question)

A: Think of the Chiropractor as a conservative health practitioner. Trained in differential diagnosis, the latest diagnostic procedures (You know similar in function toa general practitioner who really knows a lot about orthopedics).They recommend dietary changes/improvements, lifestyle recommendations, exercise if warranted, various physiotherapeutic regimens, and can do allergy work-ups, prescribe orthotics, do X-Ray, MRI, CAT or other radiological diagnostic imaging procedures, utilize multi-class LASAR modalities etc. and when appropriate, they refer to the appropriate allopathic physician (i.e. surgeon, medical specialist etc.)Often those same allopathic physicians refer patients to chiropractors.

There is much more but I digress. I don?t have room here to explain everything and I?m just a simple guy. I don?t have all the answers.

Surely someone of your obvious superior medical talent has better things to do than lambaste a complementary profession?Obviously there is much more to being a Chiropractic Physician andthis is just a very simple, general overview, and you understand what I?m saying.
Maybe you don't.

Or maybe.....just maybe....it's because you and the de-licensed Stephen Barrett (Who has lost every recent court case he's been involved in and is accused of racketeering if I read the court papers correctly) feel a certain amount of fear or envy regarding Dr. Haldemans abilities. After all, he is a triple doctorate holdingDC,MD and Ph.D. degrees. You're degree was as an MD correct?
You graduated in 1945 right?

Maybe it's because you and the five or six other people in your organization (which in my opinion is full of quackery itself) seem to crave the media so much and have something to hide? I think in Psych 101 we called it Shadow Projection (to use a Jungian Term) I don't know. Actions sure speak louder than words though. I see Dr. Holdeman at many medical review panels and neurological symposiums.

Funny.... I haven't seen you at any of the neurology symposiums presenting research to contrast what Dr. Holdeman has been saying. Maybe it's because you can't.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview...
Dr. Haldeman has written a balanced and thorough overview of the chiropractic profession. It is somewhat dated but a medical literature search will quickly bring you up to speed as he continues to publish extensively in journals such as Spine. Highly recommended if you want the basics. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Another overpriced rehash of common sense.

He gives examples of living on a budget and that's about it.

There is no meat to this book.Had I paid 15 dollars for it, I wouldn't complain.But I didn't.

I expected detailed information on superbilling, marketing, what to say when asked about insurance, etc.

In one chapter about bookkeeping, the author suggests a CPA.This type of common sense is what you'll will get a lot of when you read this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Ideas within a "Poor Mentality" Base
This book is full of interesting material, on how to develop the practice, the ethics... However I was a little disappointed by the "poor mentality" expressed by the authors; they often relate to the lack of money and how they're always trying to get the cheapest and avoid expenses. I agree that it's important to look carefully over money matters, and that money is much more easily spent than it is owned, but I believe we can be very successful with an abundance mentality. Nevertheless, this is a book I recommend, filtering through the information that make most sense for each reader. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Literature Review
Dr. Eriksen has compiled a very impressive collection of research that supports the controversial upper cervical chiropractic philosophy.He leaves no stone unturned as he discusses the anatomy of the region, its biomechanics, and most importantly, the complex neurology of the region in addition to several other topics, all the while providing abstracts of multi-disciplinary research articles from several international publications concerning the topics being discussed.This text is a wealth of scientific knowledge which helps to explain the miracles that upper cervical doctors constantly see in their offices.And Amazon's price cannot be beaten.

5-0 out of 5 stars great!
this is a great book for anyone wanting a bunch of information and research on this subject. it's very well written, very easy to read, and extreamly informative! i love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex
Absolutely incredible book for lay people and chiropractors and anyone interested in the upper cervical spine.Case studies noted are awesome!Thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in this particular area of the spine...bit of chiropractic and medical terminology to overcome if you are a layperson reading it, but a stimulating book all the same.

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful Book
This book would have to be the most comprehensive gathering of literature concerning Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic (UCSC), ever. You may need to know everything that has spawned in the literature since Dr BJ Palmer's controversial assertion that the upper cervical spine is the only place chiropractors will find a subluxation. You may just want to casually look up a paper written on the upper cervical spine's influence on health. The book is designed for either type of study. In fact, the beauty of this book is that you don't have to read it so much as refer to it. And for the busy clinician, that's all we can realistically expect.

UCSC is a specialty within chiropractic. As Dr Dan Murphy, DC states in the introduction, for a third of chiropractic's century as a profession "the predominant practice of chiropractic involved primarily the upper cervical spine". Yet, as the Australian experience reflects, it is very few in this country indeed that refrain from directing forces to areas other than C1.

This book is incredible . Everything I have encountered in my own endeavour to seek out anything scientific supporting what BJ was zealously advocating all those years ago, without any apparent evidence, is here. Any low-level writing, such as that of general digest publications, is tolerated well because the reader can look at references instantly to find out how to mentally categorise each opinion. This is a unique format; you don't have to sift through a reference list at the end to see if it was written in this decade, or if your scientific nemesis wrote it! Older papers are listed first, and editorial comment is distinctly defined from abstracts and text. What an enormous gap it fills on my bookshelf.

The only thing this book has not done is to explain the extremely limited uptake of UCSC amongst chiropractors in - and outside of - the USA; which, in turn explains the aching lack of research into large populations undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care, and it's impact on public health.

Yet, does it not make far more sense to discover the intricacies of the articulations of the skull base before any other region is attempted? If you answered yes, this book is for you. If "no", you still need to own it as a complete"chirocentric" literature review of the topic.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for all chiropractors
Dr. Eriksen's book is a significant contribution to the profession.Don't be misled by the title--this book is a must read for all chiropractors--not just upper cervical specialists.It provides the "intellectual ammunition" to respond to those who claim there is no scientific evidence to support subluxation. ...

Product Description
Technique Systems in Chiropractic describes and analyzes the most commonly used 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. This book describes over two dozen technique systems in a nonjudgemental 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.

  • 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 draw comparisons between techniques.
  • Features chapters on chiropractic terminology, as well as examination and adjustive 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, and how 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 the United States and Canada.
  • Includes a glossary of technique-specific terms and jargon.

This book helps explore the techniques, however I'd like to see more Q&A with the leaders in the various techique systems.For example, why not interview the leaders of structural techniqes or upper cervical tecniques?

5-0 out of 5 stars Objectivity and Intelligence
I teach chiropractic techniques at a well-known chiropractic college and have not seen a better compendium of technique summaries in print anywhere.This book offers an intelligent and succinct look at the most popular and effective chiropractic analyses and corrective procedures used by the profession.For any health care provider or patient looking for more information on what their chrio is doing, this is THE place to look.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chiropractic technique book charts new waters
I am not aware of any book that covers the same subject matter. As the authors state from the outset, this book is not an advertisement for any of the techniques described in the book, but rather an honest attempt to describe them as they are. It covers the major techniques in chiropractic according to a common format, so that a patient, a chiropractic student, a chiropractor, or anyone else interested in chiropractic can figure out what it means to be treated using one technique as compared with another.

The writing is formal where it needs to be, but very casual and entertaining in places and in contexts where formality would have been more expected. For me, the best part of the book are the chapter introductions. There are anecdotes and personal observations that really make these techniques come alive, and give us a window into how this book came into being. Cooperstein and Gleberzon obviously love these techniques, even the ones where they could not contain their skepticism. It's all chiropractic to them.
Clearly, as authors, teachers, and researchers, they are in the middle of everthing going on in chiropractic.
The book is wierdly underpriced at about $45.00, a real steal. ... Read more
