Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA June 2013
72 Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 43 Number 2 June 2013 Re: Eaton, S, Bonello, R, Strkalj, G, Brown, BT, Green, H, Graham, PL. "Demographic Characteristics and Perceptions of Supply and Demand of Chiropractic Services in Australia: Results from Stage 1 of the Work Force Study Survey." Chiropractic Journal of Australia 2012;42:82-90. Dr Ramon Fernandez-Caamano was the Chief Investigator for the Workforce Study. He was not listed as an author in the manuscript titled "Demographic Characteristics and Perceptions of Supply and Demand of Chiropractic Services in Australia: Results from Stage 1 of the Work Force Study Survey". Dr Fernandez-Caamano should be listed as the third author on this manuscript. Correction Whiplash: A patient-centred approach to management. Gatterman MI. Elsevier Mosby. St. Louis, Miss. 2012. 196 pages. ISBN 978-0-323-04583-4 It is available through Book Depository (UK) for Aust$79.56 (Free P & H) This is another excellent text by Gatterman, one satisfying a gap in the whiplash textbook feld. It seems to have been primarily aimed at the fundamentals of whiplash, while being suitable as a well referenced and well indexed text for the clinician and student. It would also be of interest for legal, and insurance purposes. As a unique feature, there is an associated web access to a related PowerPoint® slide presentation, an impressive image collection, and printable patient handouts on headaches and sleep assessment. While Dr Gatterman herself has authored six chapters, plus one jointly, another fve chiropractors and an MD have contributed the others, while Dr Cheryl Hawk has written the forward. The format of the text is somewhat distinct, as it is particularly easy to use with prominent sub-headings. Of note are the coloured anatomical diagrams and coloured clinical examination photographs, making the text very user friendly. All are included in a logical sequence of chapters. Apart from the anatomical detail, case history, and examination chapters, other sections include imaging, headaches, epidemiology, safety, and effcacy of various Book Review: forms of care. The broad-ranging, holistic management of soft tissue injuries, and particularly their prognoses, are presented. The role of SMT in whiplash, fbromyalgia, headaches, neck pain and muscular involvement are also discussed. I acknowledge the references to the role of the once obscure rectus capitis posterior minor in headaches. That is, its physical connective tissue bridge to the dura mater as described by Hack and colleagues in 1995. The treatment recommendations not only cover spinal adjustments, but also discuss such topics as red fags and potential risk indicators for the possibility of developing chronicity, There is notable emphasis on soft tissue and Whiplash Associated Disorders involved in the WAD condition, with an emphasis on patient-centred care. Perhaps more emphasis could have been placed on such topics as the differences between acceleration/deceleration and deceleration/-acceleration injuries, as in front or rear-end collisions, as well as side impact injuries. The differentiation between low-impact and high-impact forces may also have been pertinent. Given the preponderance of whiplash injuries addressed by chiropractors the text should sit within handy reach, right up there next to other chiropractic texts on whiplash such as those by Norhoff, as well as Foreman and Croft, as a further highly informative and recommended reference text.
