"I have used the core protocols in the QA Book for several years. I have seen results that weren’t supposed to be possible... I began expecting amazing things to happen. The QA Book will show you, step by step, how to create dramatic results, reliably and systematically... the kind of results that get the word around that you are capable of great things." -------------------------------Sam Yanuck, DC
QUINTESSENTIAL APPLICATIONS: A(K) Clinical Protocol (QABook), the first ever neurologically based AK clinical reference manual, coauthored by Drs. Kerry McCord and Walter Schmitt, is now in its SECOND EDITION.
Updated to include all clinical application taught in the QA Course, the SECOND EDITION of the QA Book boasts a substantially expanded appendix, reflects the entire content of the QA Course, and is fully indexed for ease of use.
A working knowledge of applied kinesiology and familiarity with functional neurological and biochemical assessment procedures developed and introduced by Dr. Schmitt is necessary to effectively use the information and procedures published in the second edition of the QA Book. However, the information and clinical distinctions needed are provided in the QA Course and on the QA DVDs. TheQABookallows practitioners of varied disciplines and practice styles to incorporate physiologically ordered assessment procedures into their daily practices. Easily accessed, protocol specific guidelines make it possible to review and apply a specific procedure within the constraints of time typically allotted to a standard office visit.
A two page procedural outline appears in the beginning of the text and the body of the manual is fully tabbed, providing two pages of information for each item in the outline. The Appendix provides supplemental clinical procedures, considerations and resources.
QUINTESSENTIAL APPLICATIONSpresents a well-ordered context for a practitioner’s clinical considerations. It is basic science driven. It is comprehensive. It is organized by a well thought out neurological hierarchy. It allows the physician to navigate the terrain of the patient’s physiology, efficiently and effectively, propelled toward a favorable and often remarkable outcome.
"In emergency rooms and hospitals across the country, manuals with current clinical protocols for varied patient presentations are used by physicians and nurses alike. They are used to guide the assessment and treatment of the patient in harmony with established and accepted norms. Those of us engaged in functionally oriented medicine have never had such a manual............... until NOW.”
