The first volume in our new Primary Care series, this book will help family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, and osteopathic and chiropractic physicians diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems seen in the primary care office setting. This full-color book contains quick hit information for the practitioner on the go, as well as in-depth text, more than 500 illustrations, and patient education handouts.
Chapters are consistently formatted with headings of Case, Clinical Presentation, Physical Findings, Studies, Treatment, Clinical Course, When to Refer, and ICD-9 Codes. Each chapter contains boxed elements: "Clinical Points," "Patient Assessment," "Not to Be Missed," and "Treatment."
A companion Website includes the fully searchable text, an image bank, patient education handouts, and videos of examination and injection procedures.
