Low back pain.

Ebnezar, John.

Jaypee Bros.

195 pages



Ebnezar, an orthopedic surgeon in India, covers common and uncommon problems that lead to lower back pain, for orthopedic surgeons, undergraduate and graduate students, physicians, physiotherapists, alternative therapists, and rehabilitation specialists, as well as patients. Clinical photos, x-rays, and illustrations accompany concise explanations of anatomy, functions of the spine, posture, uncommon causes--spina bifida, ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, osteoporosis, spondylolisthesis, seronegative spondyloarthropathies, lumbar spondylosis and canal stenosis, old thoracic and thoracolumbar injuries, and tuberculosis spine--and details on history, clinical findings, investigations, and treatment. The final section looks at common causes like intervertebral disk prolapse, slipped disks, and repetitive stress injury, with exercises, self-treatment ideas, and other information.
