  • A full chapter on surface anatomy includes tables for identifying vertebral levels of deeper anatomic structures, designed to assist with physical diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the spine, as well as evaluation of MRI and CT scans.
  • High-quality, full-color illustrations show fine anatomic detail.
  • Red lines in the margins draw attention to items of clinical relevance, clearly relating anatomy to clinical care.
  • Spinal dissection photographs, as well as MRIs and CTs, reinforce important anatomy concepts in a clinical context.
  • With its unique clinical perspective and evidence-based coverage, Clinical Anatomy of the Spine, Spinal Cord, and ANS is the definitive reference for applying anatomic considerations to the evaluation and management of conditions of the spine and associated neural structures, including spinal impingement and subluxation. High-quality color illustrations and photographs, as well as abundant radiographs, CT, and MRI images, visually demonstrate specific anatomic and neuromusculoskeletal relationships and highlight structures that may be affected by manual and surgical spinal techniques or other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.


    Key Features
    • Coverage of the mechanisms behind the evaluation and treatment of clinical conditions related to the spine and associated neural structures helps you connect theory to practice by providing the rationale behind treatments.
    • Special emphasis on structures that may be affected by manual and surgical spinal techniques and by other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures related to the spine provides more focused coverage than general anatomy references.
    • Diagnostic imaging technology is highlighted throughout, with radiographs, CTs, and MRIs that demonstrate the relevance of anatomy to clinical practice.
    • High-quality color illustrations and photographs enhance your understanding and assist with diagnostics.
    • Highlighted items allow you to quickly locate clinically relevant information.

    Published Reviews

    "Embryological, gross anatomical, histological, and physiological aspects of the spine, spinal cord, and ANS are comprehensively discussed and related to the pathophysiology encountered in clinical practice. Extensive use of illustrations, clinical vignettes, photographs, radiologic images, and well-organized tables enhances the presentation and eases the aforementioned application of current anatomical knowledge in the clinical setting. The text is well-written and organized in short paragraphs separated by a logic sequence of headings and subheadings to maintain oversight to the reader.

    I highly recommend this work to all students in the medical field and health care providers involved in the care of patients with disorders of the spine and spinal cord."
