Atlas of Common Subluxations of the Human Spine and Pelvis
by William J. Ruch
A very popular atlas illustrating and discussing the subluxation of the spine and related health implications. For chiropractic, medical, and legal communities. Radiologic images and dissections.
Dr. Ruch’s extensively illustrated book helps demonstrate the relationship between subluxations (partial dislocations) of the spine and acute or chronic changes in nerve tissue, muscle and connective tissue, and the subject’s quality of life. It shows how, using modern imaging (Xray, MRI), clinicians could evaluate, treat, and predict outcomes for persons with traumatic or chronic spinal misalignments.
Here are a few excerpts from various reviews:
“Because of its detailed nature, this atlas would be of most interest to orthopaedic physical therapists specializing in spinal dysfunction. It would also make a valuable addition to the anatomy reference collection of physical therapy schools, departments, and office practices.” — The Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy
“…documents CT Scan, MRI, x-ray, and dissection studies of spinal pathologies, which should be important to all healthcare professionals.” — American Journal of Clinical Chiropractic
“…an excellent resource for chiropractors who want to improve the quality of care in their practice.” — Today’s Chiropractic
“This book is a wonderful contribution to chiropractic. The photographs are superb. Anyone who needs evidence of the devastating effects of vertebral subluxations should read this book.”
“An excellent illustration of cervical postural distortions and the related manifestations which compromise the spinal cord and brain stem. Clearly illustrates the muscles which need to be released to improve spinal health.”
“It is a book that all doctors should have in their library. It shows with great images how the subluxation complex act on the spinal cord. Patients appreciate the visual clear informations from the book.”
