About this book


Healthcare providers are increasingly called upon to identify and manage complex musculoskeletal issues in their patients. Common Musculoskeletal Problems, Second Edition, is an excellent point-of-care resource for healthcare providers to better diagnose and treat patients presenting with common musculoskeletal complaints. Each chapter in this book focuses on a specific joint or region and discusses anatomy, red flags, approach to the patient, and common clinical presentations and management. This new edition includes information on Meaningful Use legislation as well as meaningful use flow sheets and physical examination tearsheets that provide step-by-step guidelines for management and follow-up of a patient’s problem. These materials are formatted to easily fit into an electronic medical record.  This book is a valuable  curriculum outline and resource for medical students, primary care residents, physician assistants, and athletic training students.
