About this book


This handbook is an essential guide to diagnosing and managing musculoskeletal problems and injuries in the primary care setting. Derived from Dr. Robert B. Taylor's widely acclaimed Family Medicine: Principles and Practice, Sixth Edition, this convenient, pocket-sized book examines problems of the skeleton and related muscles and joints. Expert contributors provide essential information on musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses geared to the needs of the busy clinician. In addition to common problems such as sprains, strains, and fractures, chapters also cover athletic injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and complex regional pain syndrome. This handy reference is an ideal tool for family physicians and others who provide primary care.
