‘Differential Diagnosis’ marks fifth edition

Book cover

Jones and Bartlett Publishing recently launched the fifth edition of “Differential Diagnosis and Management for the Chiropractor,” a “compendium of evidence- based approaches to the most common presenting complaints,” by Thomas Souza, D.C., DACBSP, dean of Academic Affairs at Palmer’s San Jose campus.

Since its debut in 1997, “Differential Diagnosis” has sold more than 30,000 copies, becoming one of the most widely used references to assist doctors with determining an appropriate plan of diagnostic evaluation and care for the most common musculoskeletal and visceral complaints. It’s currently a required text at nearly every chiropractic college.

“Much has occurred since the publication of the fourth edition six years ago,” says Dr. Souza, a member of the San Jose Campus faculty for nearly 30 years. “Most important is the inclusion of manipulation for the management of spinal pain in the recommendations of national groups.”

Copies are available for purchase in the Palmer College bookstores. To learn more or to order copies online.
