Fundamentals of Chiropractic covers basic chiropractic philosophy and history, principles and practice. In addition to covering chiropractic care techniques, this textbook also provides a section on anatomy, biomechanics, and physiology, and a section on spinal analysis and diagnostic procedures. A variety of scientific and philosophical issues within the chiropractic community are addressed in this book so that it can easily be used as a core text for several introductory courses.Fundamentals of Chiropractic retains nine core chapters from Contemporary Chiropractic (with revision) and includes 24 new chapters, all focusing on grounding the beginning student in the practice of chiropractic. Additionally, chapter authors present material in a textbook type format, clearly defining all terms, explaining and illustrating concepts, providing key terms, and writing review/critical thinking questions. Scope and content is appropriate for and specifically tailored to first and second year chiropractic students taking introductory chiropractic courses, but still appeals to the chiropractic community in general because of its diverse subjects.
