Chiropractic books

A bookcase with chiropractic books.

Chiropractic books help one acquire better health naturally.

Welcome to our site. Here you will find oodles of natural health information; for the DC and his patients, and for you too even if you are just searching for knowledge and solutions.

It's all about the art and science of manipulation and dozens of interesting tomes but also much more.

These natural health books you will find are neatly divided into two sections; those that are light and inspirational and others that are educational.

Knowledge is power enabling us to make real progress towards better health.

There are books light and funny; educational, anatomical and medical tomes. Many you will find these inspirational too; some chiropractic history. Videos and posters, here you will find it all.

What is chiropractic? Well, that's obviously a very important page. For the moment let’s just say that it's a health science that is complementary to medicine; but not complimentary about the excessive use of drugs and surgery. That’s something quite different. 

So, if you are a bookworm and have come to the site seeking better health naturally, and lots of information about natural care of your joints, then enjoy the ride. At chiropractic books you've come to the right place. You'll find plenty of good reads; some are easy and fun, and some really heavy stuff for the boffins, with plenty for the likes of you and me in between.

It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot, irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it.

Jacob Bronowski

At inspirational books you will find all sorts to keep you busy in your search for answers.

Better health is sometimes purely about some insight gleaned from here and there. It takes no great achievement, or inspiration, for a person to increase the omega 3 in their diet, and thus drastically reduce inflammation in joints and muscles; and in the gut, blood vessels and other organs. All it takes is a little understanding; knowledge is power.

But better health is often only achieved after a momentous struggle against all odds. Reading books of people who have struggled, and won, is indeed inspirational.

Others are books that inspire us by hook or by crook to take the momentous step, perhaps to lose thirty kilograms, or stop smoking, or to take on the challenge of getting on top of a nasty back through chiropractic and exercise or some other care.

And some like those of Bernard Preston, with his stories from the chiropractic coalface, are to inspire and enthuse us about better health naturally.

Some books are to be tasted, others swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

  Francis Bacon, 1561 - 1626

And a few to be spat out with disdain?

We are looking for titles of books, health related books, that have inspired you. If you have found a particular book has encouraged you to make a great step, please send us the title, author, isbn number, and a couple of paragraphs on how it inspired you.

Educational Books

Some chiropractors, through sheer diligence, have gone the extra mile and become experts in their field, and then sought to pass it on through their books. Mostly, educational books are no great revenue generator, these special people do it for the love of passing secrets gleaned the hard way on to others.

At Educational Books you will find some examples. We are adding all the time. If you have found Chiropractic books (or Medical books) that have been helpful, please let us know.

Medical books 

Obviously, we have one unified body that has its own integrity, only Medicine and Chiropractic perceive it from different standpoints. Chiropractors use a great many excellent Medical Books as references. In making the differential diagnosis of a patient with chest pain, the chiropractor needs to know about "medical" conditions such as pleurisy and heart disease that can and do cause chest pain. Not every case of chest pain is a rib condition or Tietze's syndrome!

Interesting, a visit to a local radiologist revealed that he had two Chiropractic Radiological books on his shelves. It cuts both ways.

Anatomy Books

Chiropractors make extensive use of anatomy books, perhaps the best known of which is Grays Anatomy, but there are these days many others:

Chiropractic History Books

The history of Chiropractic goes back little more than a century, but in fact Hippocrates and Galen and even long before that, were using and advocating manipulation of the spine to promote human health. More about our Chiropractic history books:

Chiropractic Continuing Education

At Chiropractic Books you will find continuing education for chiropractors and chiropractic students. The Chiropractic profession is rapidly specialising in many different fields. Sports, children, radiology, neurology ... for more about courses and seminars, click here:

Six Golden Rules for Chiropractors.

Medical patients complain that their doctors often do not really understand the underlying reasons why they are being consulted.Could this apply to doctors of Chiropractic too? We think so. Read more…

Leg length inquality

A short leg means a tilted pelvis, a spinal curvature and more arthritis of the hip. Solving a leg length inequality need not be difficult nor expensive, but it's certainly not clinically straight forward.

What is chiropractic?

The question what is chiropractic is likely to be answered by ten chiropractors in at least five different ways. It's both the strength and the weakness of the profession; underlying it all though is the chiropractic adjustment, but delivered in many different ways.

Better Health Naturally

Chiropractic has been intimately tied up with naturopathy since it's inception. Sparkling health is not just about being well adjusted; exercise and healthy eating is vital too, not to mention mental and spiritual health.

Despite the phenomenal growth of chiropractic in North America we have seen the USA slipping to fortieth on the world health scale; perhaps caused by the equally unprecedented increase in prescription drugs.

It's interesting that a veteran open heart surgeon is saying that the intima of blood vessels are more inflamed than ever. He recommends returning to the foods that our grandmothers served, and not what our mothers taught us. Interesting that new meta analysis of the butter versus margarine debate concludes there is no conclusive evidence that a change to polyunsaturates is beneficial. Butter is back is the buzz word.

Even more important is the inclusion of vegetables and salads, fruits and nuts and healthy olive oil. Healthy choice foods and more exercise should be on the agenda for everyone who wants to get off medication and discover better health naturally.

For the chiropractor sources of anti inflammatory Omega 3 is a fascinating subject. Simply the addition of salmon and sardines, pilchards and mackerel to the diet would greatly improve our patients' painful joints and muscles. Further include a tablespoon of freshly ground flax seed in our daily cereal and we would see our patients responding far better to chiropractic care, uninhibited by an overall inflammatory diet.

USEFUL LINKS @ Chiropractic Books

Health Information

Feel free to forward our Chiropractic Help newsletter to your patients, doc. In fact add extracts to your own newsletter if you send one. An acknowledgement would be nice! Or a link back to our site.

In our busy world there is oddly a paucity of reliable health information that people actually read and digest. The Tufts University newsletter is great; if one reads them and make the appropriate changes.

Bernard Preston

We feature too the light and inspirational books by chiropractor Dr Bernard Preston. Gems from the coalface, they describe vividly the struggle of his patients to step up to that place where sparkling good health is to be found, free from the side effects of medication; and his own struggle to provide ever better chiropractic care.

The book frog in my throat.

Physical Therapists providing a Chiropractic adjustment?

Many insurance companies now only pay for physical therapists to provide a chiropractic adjustment; that's in the face of powerful research proving that inclusion of DCs to perform their own technique would save them a good deal of money. One has to conclude that political medicine has gone off on another tack to contain our profession.

It's being successful with some doctors of chiropractic quitting. Others become involved in some dodgy practices, like demanding that patients sign up for a whole year of treatment in advance, in order to stay in business.

In recessionary times, the going is tough when the insurance won't pay.

Is the day approaching for a new Wilk versus the AMA and the insurance companies?

The chiropractic profession has tried hard to stay on the moral high ground; those who stoop to unscrupulous practices need to be exposed and disciplined if we are not to stoop to the low blows that medicine has often resorted to contain and eliminate us.
