This practical, illustrated guide covers the use and technique of injecting joints for the relief of musculoskeletal pain and inflammation. Introductory chapters deal with the effects of corticosteroids and local anaesthetics and their uses; safety procedures which should be observed when using these products for injection and guidelines to safe injection techniques. The bulk of the book deals with the technique of injection joint by joint. The text is laid out so that each page of text describing the technique is matched by a facing page of illustrations illustrating the procedure. For each joint there is a 4 colour line drawing of the anatomy of the joint and a full colour photograph showing the surface anatomy position for injection. The actual technique of giving the injection and location the correct anatomical position for the insertion of the needle is demonstrated and explained on the CDRom.

  • Step by step guide to injection techniques

Editorial Reviews


Injection Techniques in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is an excellent resource manual for practitioners involved in providing pain relief for musculoskeletal disorders. It provides a systematic procedure for the use of injection therapy when treating soft tissue and joint complications. The book is well written, clear and concise. with up-to-date references. Improvements to this edition include a more comprehensive selection of gudelines and procedures, better images to help the practitioner identify and locate injection sites, a wider array of joints to inject, and a new chapter on spine and jaw injection techniques. This new edition includes a very comprehensive CD-ROM, which provides site-specific guidelines for safe injection procedures...

The first section provides the reader with important guidelines and procedures, explaining the variety of corticosteroids and local anaesthetics used, along with contraindications and complications. The ensuing chapters outline the injection procedures, which are presented on a joint-to-joint base and are thoroughly described and complimented with anatomical pictures and photographs of injection site landmarks, which really facilitates understanding.

This book is a valuable tool for both current practitioners well versed in injection techniques, and undergraduates or graduates with an interest in learning how to safely and effectively provide pain-relieving injections. It is extremely well written, is easy to follow and I thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for basic injections January 9, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I had minimal exposure to joint injections in school so when I was hired at an orthopedic office I knew I was going to need a reference. This book was great! Nice illustrations, the basic information - no fluff, easy to navigate through.
