This volume presents an office management guide for orthopaedic care, detailing steps that illustrate proper patient management, from evaluation through injection and referral. It explains each problem by analyzing how a typical patient describes the discomfort, describing what to look for during the exam, suggesting when to request X-rays and illustrating how to draw sound diagnosis from clinical observations. The text also covers soft tissue injection, indicating points of entry, depth of injection, and which kinds of needles to use. A table of supports, braces and casts is also included to enable the choice of efficient, cost-effective immobilizers for patients. Comparison tables list dose, cost and use of injectable corticosteroids, NSAID's, and calcium supplements. Finally, the book comes with 15 take-home information sheets on thermal flexibility and toning treatments to distribute to patients.

Review of first edition: "This handbook can be a valuable quick reference addition to the office library of family physicians who treat musculoskeletal problems but are not fully informed on treatment protocol. It is also a good guide to injection techniques, and provides patient handouts that may be valuable with selected patient populations..." -The Journal of Family Practice
