Essentials of Spinal Disorders

by Christian P DiPaola, Jason C Eck

This book, Essentials of Spinal Disorders, deals with bone and spinal disorders. Disorders of the spine are one of the most common medical complaints and can affect nearly everyone at some point during life. As a result, it is crucial for the medical professionals caring for these patients to have a solid understanding of these conditions including a thorough knowledge of spinal anatomy, applied biomechanics, and pathophysiology combined with nonoperative and surgical treatment options. The book first provides chapters reviewing the various aspects of basic science including anatomy and biomechanics as well as an overview of key physical examination points and appropriate use of imaging studies. Each of the subsequent chapters on specific spinal disorders consists of a discussion of patient presentation, pathophysiology, imaging findings, and nonoperative and surgical treatment options.
