Summary

Chiropractors are recognized specialists in spinal pain. But today, as chiropractors move increasingly into primary care roles, it's not uncommon to see patients with coughs, fever, abdominal pain, and dozens of other nonmusculoskeletal symptoms. Differential Diagnosis for the Chiropractor covers the range of complaints commonly seen in daily practice--including neurologic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, cardiopulmonary, and many other concerns and conditions. With easy-to-follow algorithms and concise explanatory text, this timely handbook helps the practitioner evaluate a patient's complaint in the context of a chiropractor's scope of practice. Protocols for a wide range of visceral conditions are outlined, as well as the musculoskeletal conditions traditionally associated with chiropractic. This new edition is revised to reflect updated national guidelines and recommendations. Laboratory values have been added, as well as considerations for evaluating special populations and increased nutritional and musculoskeletal management information.
