Overview

This revised, expanded edition of the popular total office management guide for orthopedic care provides step-by-step treatment for the most commonly encountered musculoskeletal conditions.

Contains updated tables of supports, braces and casts to make it easy to choose the most efficient and cost-effective immobilizers for patients.

Editorial Reviews

Karen Nardella
This book is a very useful guide for primary care providers in the diagnosis and treatment of common outpatient orthopedic problems, including strains, sprains, overuse injuries, and inflammatory and arthritic conditions. It is intended to help primary care providers make common nonsurgical orthopedic diagnoses and prescribe treatment, including physical therapy. There are step-care treatment protocols and guidelines for activity restrictions, immobilization, and appropriate timing of injections and referrals. Included are detailed descriptions and illustrations of injection technique. The author, an orthopedic surgeon, has 12 years of experience teaching orthopedics to family practitioners and internists. He is a well-respected authority. His book is written for family practitioners and internists as well as nurse practitioners, osteopaths, and chiropractors. This book is unique in that it contains detailed material for providers and patients for home physical therapy exercises. Also included are a summary of the ten most common fractures seen in primary care and a description of commonly used braces, casts, and splints. The appendix has useful tables for dosing corticosteroids, NSAIDS, and calcium supplements. This is a very practical and comprehensive book for primary care providers. It combines a thorough discussion of diagnosis and treatment with guidelines for physical therapy and injection technique. The book will allow the primary care provider to manage the majority of outpatient orthopedic problems independently.
