Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Leslie K Rydberg, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This guide contains short chapters of basic information on three major areas in physical medicine and rehabilitation: musculoskeletal disorders, pain, and rehabilitation.
Purpose: The purpose is to address both common and uncommon medical issues that a variety of practitioners will encounter in their outpatient practices.
Audience: The book is geared for a wide variety of specialists — internists, physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, and neurologists. However, some topics are too basic for certain practitioners (i.e. the stroke chapter for physiatrists, the rheumatoid arthritis chapter for rheumatologists), which may limit its usefulness.
Features: The topics are organized into three categories: musculoskeletal conditions, pain, and rehabilitation. Each short chapter tackles one specific topic (i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome) and includes the appropriate ICD-9 codes, definition, symptoms, physical examination, functional limitations, diagnostic studies, treatment, and potential complications.
Assessment: This is a helpful resource for general practitioners in multiple medical specialties. It would be best used as a reference for medical issues that are outside of a practitioner's specialty or for medical issues that are less commonly encountered.
