Editorial Review(s) 

"This is a great quick reference for common spine disorders. It gives busy clinicians access to relevant facts so they don't have to take time during a busy clinic to thumb through textbook chapters or journals and/or search the Internet. It allows them to provide patients with information more quickly and ultimately become more efficient. It does serve its purpose well as a quick reference. I found the epidemiology, prognosis, and helpful hints sections most helpful." - Susan Hillary Nack, DO, (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago), Doody's Reviews
