About the Authors
  • Back pain and back injury is an extremely common problem, producing chronic, debilitating symptoms for sufferers, and resulting in millions of pounds of lost revenue in absence from work and paid in compensation for spinal injuries. Originally published in 2004, The Medico-Legal Back addresses the problem for a legal readership, in a clear, concise and reader-friendly style. It does away with the need to search for and then extract complex information from many different sources, and as such will be an indispensable guide to the problem for all lawyers, judges and medico-legal experts, as well as being of value to the orthopaedic surgeon with an interest in the spine. Of particular value is the use throughout the book of analogies drawn on anatomical technicalities and common movements, situations and incidents of everyday life.

    • Written by authors of international renown
    • Surgical and radiological emphasis provided by dual authorship of an orthopaedic surgeon and a radiologist specialising in musculoskeletal and spinal imaging
    • Distils information normally dispersed in many different sources into a single reference
    • Will become the definitive guide to back problems and injury for medico-legal professionals at all levels
