Clinical Reasoning in Spine Pain, Volume I: Primary Management of Low Back Disorders Using the CRISP Protocols, by internationally recognized clinician, author, and researcher Dr. Donald R. Murphy is a book for chiropractors, physical therapists, medical doctors, and other professionals as well as students who study, treat, and care for people with low back disorders. Unlike most medical texts, granular detail is replaced with a practical, evidence-based approach designed for real-world application. It gives clinicians and students a concise means to integrate disparate findings, organize clinical data, form a diagnosis, and design an effective management strategy. Murphy explains his unique approach to patient care with the Clinical Reasoning in Spine Pain(TM) (CRISP(TM)) protocols, an evidence-based, patient-centered, and relationship-oriented approach to diagnosis and management.
