Public health is of concern to practicing chiropractors, as well as chiropractic students. The vast majority of chiropractors utilize public health concepts every day as an integral part of patient care. For instance, they give advice on risk factors that should be avoided and protective factors to be added by their patients to enhance healing and prevent illness. Pubic health is also part of the curriculum at all chiropractic colleges and is tested by the National Board. No public health textbooks are available that are specifically designed for the chiropractor. Consequently, college instructors are forced to make-do with class notes and generic texts that do not address the specific issues relevant to chiropractic. This book will not only be of interest to chiropractic students, but also practicing chiropractors because it will provide information they can utilize to provide better care by positively intervening with their patients and their communities regarding public health matters.

This landmark text is the most comprehensive book ever published on the vertebral subluxation complex.

Written by an expert renowned for his lucid, well-illustrated explanations of complex issues related to subluxation-based care. Dr. Eriksen reviews the anatomy and kinematics of the upper cervical spine and explains how impaired biomechanics causes neurological dysfunction and physiological concomitants. This reference is not intended to be about chiropractic technique; rather, Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex provides the "why" as opposed to the "how" of upper cervical chiropractic care.
