Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-This general discussion examines the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of some of the most common repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. Many of the chapters begin with individual case studies that will engage readers' interest and sympathy. Several black-and-white photographs appear in every chapter and prominent fact boxes highlight important information throughout. The appendixes include commonly asked questions and answers, a time line that reveals that RSIs date back to the early 1700s, a list of related organizations, and Internet addresses.- Martha Gordon, formerly at South Salem Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
