Review

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.

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.

Improved from the previous edition. Better pictures. Good, concise book for nearly all of your typical office injections. Can't beat the price.

I found the book to be very detailed and it is what I needed in the clinical setting to help me with my technique. It is a very informative book. Everyone who practices should have it as a good reference book.

I am a Family Medicine resident supervisor and use this book on a weekly basis for teaching residents as well as an occasional quick reference for myself. Everything for each injection is on two pages. Good anatomy review for before doing the injection. I love the "recipe" section on each page, b/c I can tell my nurse, "Please draw this," and can be confident that I will get just what I wanted without having to write it down myself or clarify the concentration of steroid I want to use.

Very information, pictures great and technique is illustrated very well. One of my physicians who has been practicing for awhile actually learned something from it.
