Description

This text presents the current and updated teaching of the Orthospinology procedure. Written by the author of the landmark text Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex, this book is a step-by-step, thoroughly illustrated guide to the Orthospinology procedure for correcting subluxations. Whereas Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex explains the "why" of upper cervical chiropractic care, Orthospinology Procedures teaches the "how" and reviews the evidence supporting this procedure.

The book details the X-ray analysis methods used to quantify the subluxation and determine an effective correction vector. Subsequent chapters present steps for ensuring the precision of the X-ray analysis, performing specific adjustments, assessing the effectiveness of the adjustment, and fine-tuning the correction to the individual patient. More than 300 photographs and drawings clarify complex points.
