Dr. Richard Schafer, DC was the first DC to be published by a major medical publishing company. His first-entry, a "best seller," concerning the management of sports and recreational injuries, opened this market to the authors of the chiropractic profession. Among other things, he coined the term "subluxation complex" to describe the various aspects of the subluxation-fixation. He was bestowed as a Fellow of the International College of Chiropractors (FICC) in 1974 and received a Presidential Award from the ACA, for outstanding contributions to the profession in 1992! We are proud to display his available texts here. You may also benefit from a review his website, the   ACAPress.com

Clinical Biomechanics:

This chapter reviews these factors from their basic aspects so that it will be obvious that clinical biomechanics encompasses knowledge of a wide variety of related sciences.

Chiropractic Management of
Sports and Recreational Injuries


by R. C. Schafer, DC, PhD, FICC

If a doctor only had to concern himself with injury prevention, care, and rehabilitation, his role would be much easier. But many other factors are involved. For instance, consider motivation. The average coach has many pressures upon him, as do the players. These pressures may blind a coach to the fact that a player is participating with an injury, playing beyond the point of exhaustion, or playing with an injury where further trauma may lead to permanent injury. Players too, in their enthusiasm, may avoid reporting injury or even try to hide its effects.

Clinical Chiropractic:
The Management of Pain and Disability


by R. C. Schafer, DC, PhD, FICC

When patients enter a DC's office, they seek relief. Certainly they want to know the cause of their problem (a diagnosis), but their priority is to find relief -- and as rapid as possible. That is the purpose of this book: to offer rational protocols for the relief of pain and disability even before the diagnosis is firmed. And more often than not, the patient's complaint will be resolved before the final diagnosis is determined.
