The best Introduction to Chiropractic, a booklet that chiropractic professionals can provide to patients and their own assistants that concisely explains in understandable words the problems, pains that chiropractic healing hands can treat and cure, just got better.
Louis Sportelli, DC, one of the giants of the chiropractic industry, has just produced his 12th edition of Introduction of Chiropractic. His first edition was published 40 years ago.
In 56 pages, he has packaged nearly all the information that a patient could possibly want to know about chiropractic and that helps assure a practitioner documented evidence that he/she has informed the patient about treatment and possible risks involved in treatment.
The sections on Facts About Discs, Lower Back Pain, Care of the Cervical Spine, and “Whiplash” Injury are the best I have ever seen in such a concise presentation.
The 12th edition also includes several new sections.
“This book has attempted to bridge the gap between chiropractic primary health care approaches, a focus on neuro-musculo-skeletal aspects, and the new direction and desire of today’s modern, educated, and sophisticated health care consumer to have enough education to make an informed health care choice,” said Dr. Sportelli.
In addition, the 12th edition has additional information concerning:
• Diet and the environment;
• Health maintenance;
• Non-drug, non-surgical methods to reduce pain; and,
• Seven illustrated pages of exercises to help and improve a patient’s neuro-musculo-skeletal structure.
The 12th edition also has expanded references and a bibliography.
“The references are up-to-date and include the latest in chiropractic research warranting 225 references which needed inclusion,” said Dr. Sportelli. “I also think Doctors of Chiropractic will find this bibliography to be very comprehensive and reflective of the advances in chiropractic.”
Dr. Sporelli is past president of the World Federation of Chiropractic and past chairman of the board of the American Chiropractic Association. He has been president and officer of NCMIC Group since 1995.
