Each chapter references the main part of the book, the catalog of exercises.

A leading orthopedic surgeon and a top sports chiropractor team up to offer a groundbreaking new approach to remaining injury-free and recovering from injury faster. Muscle injuries are not just for sports superstars anymore. Back, shoulder, hip, and knee problems bedevil more and more people than ever before. Muscle Medicine provides a way to prevent such injuries from happening and to treat them when they do without drugs or surgery. The product of a collaborative effort between two widely recognized authorities on sports injuries, Muscle Medicine relies on cutting-edge medical and therapeutic expertise to deliver what many doctors cannot: explanations of how to maintain good muscle health, how to treat common muscle injuries, such as “Tennis Elbow” and “Cell Phone Neck,” and how to determine when joint surgery is and is not necessary for some common orthopedic problems. By focusing on the health of our muscles, we can prevent many sports injuries from occurring and recover faster from the ones that do, say the coauthors, whose A-list clients have included John McEnroe and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Featuring more than 100 illustrations that show the basics of muscle mechanics, along with various stretching, strengthening, and self-treatment exercises, Muscle Medicine will help readers enjoy pain-free, active lives no matter what their age or activity level.
Fixing You: Shoulder & Elbow Pain highlights the shoulder blade as the primary culprit in shoulder and elbow problems. If the shoulder blade does not move properly, adverse stress is placed on the shoulder joint because the upper arm bone will not rest or move well either. Fixing You: Shoulder & Elbow Pain teaches you why this occurs and how to fix it. Problems with shoulder blade function, by extension, establish the environment for elbow injuries such as tennis elbow or golfers elbow. For this reason, to fix chronic elbow pain, problems must be addressed at both the shoulder and elbow. Fixing pain in the shoulder and elbow is much like fixing pain anywhere in the body. You must understand which muscles and joints are not working well and grasp how those problems feed poor movement habits which then reinforce the original poor muscle and joint function. This creates a cycle of pain. Visit www.FixingYou.net to learn more.

Musculoskeletal Injuries and Conditions: Assessment and Management is a practical guide to diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions in clinical practice. More comprehensive than a handbook, yet more clinically-focused than a desk reference, this volume is a one-stop guide for clinicians who deal with musculoskeletal disorders and injuries in the practice setting. The book is organized by anatomic region, from neck to toe, and written in outline format. Each chapter concisely presents the basic knowledge that every practitioner needs to have at the ready in the outpatient clinical context. Taking a uniform approach based on isolating symptoms and the location of the pain, the book presents a uniquely practical template for non-operative management of a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal problems. All chapters include epidemiology, anatomy, biomechanics, physical examination, diagnostic studies, and treatment. Flowcharts for differential diagnosis and initial management are provided for chief complaints. Helpful tables, lists, and over 150 anatomic illustrations supplement the text throughout. Given the increasing importance of ultrasound in clinical decision-making at the point of care, a mini-atlas of normal and abnormal findings for common injuries is presented as part of the imaging work-up. Designed to help busy practitioners diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders in the clinic or office, this book is an essential resource for physicians in rehabilitation and sports medicine, primary care, orthopedics, and other healthcare professionals who work in outpatient settings. Key Features: Provides a consistent approach to managing common musculoskeletal conditions based on location of pain Bulleted format and clear heading structure make it easy to find information More than 30 flowcharts map out differential diagnosis, diagnostic approach, and initial management strategy for each complaint Packed with useful tables, lists, and over 150 illustrations of surface anatomy Integrates musculoskeletal ultrasound into the imaging workup, with over 40 normal and abnormal scans to aid in recognizing signature pathologies at the point of care Purchase includes free access to the fully-searchable downloadable e-book with image bank
