Editorial Reviews

"...this interdisciplinary textbook [Low Back Syndromes] does an exceptional job of incorporating current evidence and understanding of what has been a clinical challenge into a syndrome classification approach. In addition, this is one of the first textbooks to combine the contributions of all relevant clinical specialties into a single work…this is a must-have reference for all practicing clinicians."
