With easy-to-follow algorithms and concise explanatory text, this timely handbook helps the practitioner evaluate a patient's complaint in the context of a chiropractor's scope of practice.

It's intended for physicians and medical students, but though the type is tiny and the language technical, the Merck's a valuable volume for anyone with more than a passing interest in bodily ills.
