For the professional, for the layperson.
Educational Books contains texts suitable for the layperson with an enquiring mind who is particularly interested in one or other field of chiropractic. Many however are scholarly texts for the professional.
Many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of books have been written by chiropractors, in the main for other chiropractors. However, not many books have been written particularly with the layperson also in mind. Here you may find a few new educational books.

- ESSENTIALS OF SKELETAL RADIOLOGY
Until 20 years ago, virtually all were self-published but in 1987, in spectacular style, all that changed.
But first an anecdote. I had occasion once to consult a radiologist about some films I had taken. I was unsure of the diagnosis, and sought his help. Later he began to berate my profession, declaring that we should be neither taking nor reading X-rays.
Coincidentally, on entering his rooms, I had noted that amongst ten or so texts placed handily next to his computer where he obviously spent much of the day reading X-rays, were two books which, unbeknown by him, were written by two chiropractors, Dr Yochum and Dr Rowe. Astonishingly he was quite unaware of the fact. I only wish I had had a tape recorder tucked away to record the conversation that ensued!

- VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION
Severe dizziness, also known as Vertigo, is a fairly common and very disturbing condition that faces every chiropractor, probably on a weekly, if not daily basis. Professor Susan Herdman's authoritative book should be on every chiropractor's desk if they plan to treat dizziness. A wonderfully readable educational book. I wouldn't be without it.
VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION COMPLEX
Underlying all these texts is a controversial philosophical debate about the effect that spinal conditions may have on general health. Controversial because it's difficult to prove scientifically that chiropractic may help to relieve many "medical conditions". But every chiropractor has can regale you with many strange tales of how spinal manipulation may have helped the patient with shingles, or who was impotent, or childless...
