Description

"[Dr. Maigne's] neuoranatomical explanations are brilliantly illustrated and documented with a profound review of the literature. …The benefit he has given patients who have come from all over the world for his services affirms the benefit of his method."

From the First Edition foreword by,

-René Cailliet, M.D.

Professor Emeritus,

School of Medicine of the University of Southern California

Over the course of fifty years, Dr. Robert Maigne has built up an international reputation for his pioneering work with spinal-related pain. His assessment and therapeutic techniques, once considered revolutionary, are now widely accepted as standard approaches.

In Diagnosis and Treatment of Pain of Vertebral Origin, Second Edition, Dr. Maigne presents a comprehensive and highly insightful review of both fundamental and advanced research literature, exploring the anatomic, developmental, and pathological conditions known to produce pain. Including extensive sections on assessment and therapy, he offers a complete training in the principles and techniques of manipulation for which he is known. He also offers fresh approaches to the problem of manual medicine in the fragile areas of the spine, as well as commentary on several other issues including failed back syndrome.

Dr. Maigne's devotion to inquiry and resistance to assumption, makes this text a valuable reading for every clinician. The knowledge he imparts with regard to the mechanics and treatment of pain will benefit any practice.
