This illustrated case-based book is designed to help primary care physicians treat musculoskeletal problems. The introductory chapter covers the basic approach to MS problems that is particularly effective for PCPs.

The bulk of the book builds on the fundamentals through case studies that address specific musculoskeletal problems. The case studies are categorized into five main sections according to the symptoms and signs presented by patients. An emphasis is placed on helping physicians overcome the barriers and frustrations that often accompany the complexity of treating MS problems.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This is a nicely written book that will help primary care providers to improve and expedite the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions in the outpatient setting.
Purpose: Since many patients with musculoskeletal problems present initially to primary care providers, the information in this book will enable primary care physicians and allied health professionals to provide more effective care from the outset.
Audience: The audience includes primary care providers, including residents, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners.
Features: The chapters review by region. Each chapter has a focused history with an emphasis on important details gleaned from the history that would implicate particular conditions. A focused physical examination discusses and illustrates the specifics of the examination including provocative tests. Other diagnostic tests, including imaging, and treatment options are in turn discussed. Sample cases are presented to stimulate the thinking process and discussion.
Assessment: This nicely written book will help primary care providers improve and expedite the evaluation and treatment of patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
