Written by an expert renowned for his lucid, well-illustrated explanations of complex pain syndromes, Low Back Disorders: A Medical Enigma provides a clear understanding of the mechanisms underlying functional impairment of the spine. Using 100 new original drawings, Dr. Cailliet demonstrates the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the spine and explains how impaired biomechanics cause symptoms. The book describes in detail the discogenic pathology that is the predominant factor in impairment and clarifies current concepts on the causes of spinal instability. Dr. Cailliet thoroughly reviews treatment options and their physiological basis and offers recommendations on nonsurgical treatment of low back symptoms. Compatibility:

This is a companion to Volume 1 with the same title and a similar approach: namely to draw together current understanding of the multifactorial nature of back pain. Both volumes together contain chapters contributed by most of the leading researchers into back pain in the UK and as such they constitute an unparalleled resource. Rather than concentrating on specialist areas such as surgery or the lumbar spine, the emphasis is on understanding the function and failure of the spine and its component tissues. As such it contains material which is applicable to anyone with an interest in any aspect of the spine; from biomechanics to blood flow, epidemiology to economics, nerves to nutrition and everything else in between. Contents: Epidemiology of Low Back Pain: The British Contribution (P R Croft)Measuring Health Outcomes in Low Back Pain (A Garratt & D Ruta)Pain Sources in the Lumbar Spine (R C Mulholland)Characterisation of the Innervation to the Intervertebral Discs and Associated Ligaments (P W McCarthy)The Role of the Blood Supply in Lumbar Spine Disorders (I L H Reichert et al.)Pathology of Symptomatic Lumbar Disc Protrusion: Medico-Legal and Surgical Implications (R W Porter)Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Lumbar Spine (P Thorpe & F W Smith)Digital Videofluoroscopy and Abnormal Spinal Movement (A C Breen & R Allen)Radionuclide Bone Scanning (F W Smith & P Thorpe)Spondylolisthesis (J R Johnson)Ankylosing Spondylitis (A C Ross & M Dolman)Isolated Disc Resorption (H Crock & S Matsuda)Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion and Cages (M R K Karpinski)Clinical Trial to Investigate Stabilisation of the Spine (J C T Fairbank et al.)Management of Spinal Stenosis (J E Nixon)Epidural Injections in the Management of Low Back Pain and Sciatica (K Bush) Readership: Clinicians and researchers in orthopaedics and rheumatology. keywords:Spine;Low Back Pain;Epidemiology of Low Back Pain;Intervertebral Disc;Innervation;Pain;Imaging;Surgical Management;Stability;Degeneration

This book draws together recent results and ideas from most of the leading UK researchers into back pain. The emphasis is on disorders of the lumbar spine, their pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment. This is in contrast to most books on the spine which either concentrate on the normal spine or deal with a specialised approach such as surgery. By drawing together contributions from a wide range of clinical and scientific backgrounds, including alternative therapies such as osteopathy and chiropractice, the problem of low back pain is shown to be complex and multifactorial.
