5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. O'Connor on June 21, 2002
Format: Hardcover
It is with great pleasure that I convey a rousing cheer for those patients who's doctor read this book. Dr.'s Malanga and Nadler have eliminated the fluff and have gotten straight to the point. Those lacking in their anatomy and most importantly thier physiology of the spine, this book is "continuing education." I am on the New Jersey State board of Chiropractic examiners, a delegat to the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards and an active practitioner in Bio-Mechanical Chiropractic. I have seen sloppy research followed by even sloppier applications to spinal bio-mechanics. This book has brought together the greats in this field and put them in one reference. The Universities and Colleges should be looking to this book as a text bokk staple for spinal research and rehabilitation. Bravo...Lawrence O'Connor D.C.

Format: Hardcover
I think this book is "State of the Art" on whiplash injuries. Every practicioner, researcher, and educator should have this book in their library. I practicice a biomechanical approach to treating the devastating the effects of low speed rear end collisions. The text "Whiplash" should be commended for its thoroughness in addressing the Full Spectrum of issues regarding whiplash injuries. (Over 800,000/yr as per NHTSA guidelines!) What was especially appreciated was that it includes significent documentation and explanations of the NEW INJURY MECHANISM. I.E. whiplash from rear end collisions starts in the thoracic spine and sweeps the lower neck under the upper part of the cervical spine causing a straightening of the cervical lordosis. This should set in motion more effective treatment protocols as well as devolopment of spinal protection head-neck restraint and seat systems to effectively mitigate whiplash injuries from low speed rear end collisions. Dr Gerald Malanga and Dr Scott Nadler should be commended for their efforts of bringing a multi-disiplinary approach to the study of this condition which is responsible for a great deal of human suffering. I am a practicioner and a Chiropractic Consultant for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield Casuality Services. I also have lectured to other insurance companies and staff on this topic.

6 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Oliver Kwan on May 13, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Overall, this book gives the reader a "been there, done that"
feeling. All books are outdated by the time they are released, but this book even more so. In fact, some of the chapters are just reprints of publications from 1998, which in turn are pre-1998 in composition.
There is no interesting thesis or theme that connects the chapters, and no suggestions of exactly why we face such a problem with whiplash. One can reproduce this book by doing a Medline search for review articles on whiplash. Put those articles together, and not only do you have a book, but one more up-to-date than this book, at a much lower cost.
Additionally, there are "fillers", those types of chapters you put in just to give the book some length, like cervical anatomy and physiology, and pseudoscientific pieces on chiropractic and
alternative therapies, despite the fact that these therapies have not been tested in most cases, or not been found to be useful, in trials with whiplash subjects.
There is much ado in this book about facet joints. If one carefully reviews the studies of facet joint injections and neurotomy in these patients, we find that very little science has been turned into a very great leap of faith.
After utilizing placebo-control and then comparative anaesthetic
responses in a small, poorly defined group of subjects, Lord et al were able to screen patients to find 24 that had relief of pain with diagnostic blocks of the nerve supply to specific cervical facet joints. These 24 subjects were then randomised to receive either radiofrequency neurotomy of the nerve supply to the affected facet joint or a sham procedure (12 patients in each group). A total of 6 subjects in the control group and 3 in the treatment group failed to have benefit from the procedure.
