The first in a new "Quick Reference" series in PM&R, this volume broadly covers the complex topic of spine care.

Every entry features description, etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, risk factors, clinical features, natural history, diagnosis, red flags, treatment, prognosis, helpful hints, and suggested readings on two facing pages for easy access to key information at a glance.
