Overview

The Encyclopedia of Muscle and Skeletal Systems and Disorders

This reference is for general readers looking for brief, basic information on terms heard at a doctor's office or in general conversation. Entries are written in crisp, personable, jargon-free language by freelance medical writer Mary Harwell Sayer, with review by Dr. Lori B. Siegel (The Finch U. of Health Sciences/ The Chicago Medical School), who also supplies an introductory essay on staying healthy. The entries are alphabetically arranged and are cross-referenced and indexed. They range in length from a paragraph or two (e.g. mouth, osteo-, positron emission tomography, range of motion, traction) to, more typically, a page or two (e.g. hypertrophy, knee surgery, rehabilitation, shoulder, sinuses, sleep). Appendices include a table of bone systems and disorders, and of muscle systems and disorders, an essay on using the internet for health information, and listings of relevant organizations, websites, and reference materials.
