Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Chris A. Klenck, M.D., Pharm.D.(University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This pocket-sized handbook on sports medicine consists of 22 chapters that cover specific diagnoses divided by anatomic location and organ system. Included are several chapters dedicated to procedures and special circumstances. Each diagnosis is covered in outline format.
Purpose: The authors designed the handbook for practicing clinicians who do not have a background in musculoskeletal medicine. The purpose is to provide a quick, convenient resource easily carried in a lab coat pocket.
Audience: The audience identified by the authors include sprimary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. In addition to this audience, the handbook should prove useful to medical students in the primary care setting and athletic trainers as a quick reference.
Features: The book consists of well-organized chapters divided into specific diagnoses. Each condition is then described in terms of cause, epidemiology, pathophysiology, symptoms, signs, radiographic findings, and treatment. The average text for each diagnosis is one to two pages. The outline format provides the information in a concise manner that is easy to scan in the office setting. Of particular usefulness is the inclusion of a chapter on the most common corticosteroid injection indications and technique.
Assessment: This book provides a useful tool for the primary care practitioner. Although it will aid in identifying the offending diagnosis, it should not be substituted for a comprehensive textbook. Sports medicine practitioners are unlikely to use this handbook in practice, due to the incomplete nature of the material presented.
