Technique Systems in Chiropractic

by Robert Cooperstein MA DC

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.
