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.
