About this Item

224 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.1in. x 0.7in.Have you, your loved ones or friends ever had a bone problem Have you ever wished that you knew a bit more about the nature of the problem Well, anxiety arising from lack of knowledge of the nature of bone diseases creates more problem than the disease or injury itself. A Patient and Carers Guide to Bone Diseases and Fractures throws light on bone diseases and fractures in a language a non-medically educated person can understand. It takes the reader through the symptoms, signs, investigations and treatment of common bone diseases and fractures, avoiding or explaining medical jargon, and provides a basis for understanding the doctors management of your or your wards bone problem. It is based on Professor Iwegbus 36 years experience of treating patients with bone diseases and fractures. The theme is understanding and coping with bone problems, because the aim is to help the affected person cope through understanding the problem better. The book also touches upon alternative remedies for some bone problems, which orthodox orthopaedics shies away from. There is a glossary of medical terms in the last chapter. This is indeed a unique book. I have read a few medical pamphlets and help-yourself books written for the lay-person; none matches this book in content or clarity. I quite like the understanding and coping with theme of the book and particularly enjoyed the chapters on arthritis and osteoporosis. I strongly recommend this book to all who may have bone problems or a need to know more about them. (Yasmin Jilla, London). As a mother of three young children, I was particularly interested in reading the chapter on childrens bone problems and was pleased by the simplicity of the presentation. I could never have imagined that medical problems could be made so easily understandable. This chapter alone is worth the price of the entire book (Anna Umu, London). This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781452026657

About this title

Synopsis:

Have you, your loved ones or friends ever had a bone problem? Have you ever wished that you knew a bit more about the nature of the problem? Well, anxiety arising from lack of knowledge of the nature of bone diseases creates more problem than the disease or injury itself. "A Patient and Carer's Guide to Bone Diseases and Fractures" throws light on bone diseases and fractures in a language a non-medically educated person can understand. It takes the reader through the symptoms, signs, investigations and treatment of common bone diseases and fractures, avoiding or explaining medical jargon, and provides a basis for understanding the doctor's management of your or your ward's bone problem. It is based on Professor Iwegbu's 36 years' experience of treating patients with bone diseases and fractures. The theme is "understanding and coping with" bone problems, because the aim is to help the affected person cope through understanding the problem better. The book also touches upon alternative remedies for some bone problems, which orthodox orthopaedics shies away from. There is a glossary of medical terms in the last chapter. "This is indeed a unique book. I have read a few medical pamphlets and help-yourself books written for the lay-person; none matches this book in content or clarity. I quite like the "understanding and coping with" theme of the book and particularly enjoyed the chapters on arthritis and osteoporosis. I strongly recommend this book to all who may have bone problems or a need to know more about them". (Yasmin Jilla, London). "As a mother of three young children, I was particularly interested in reading the chapter on children's bone problems and was pleased by the simplicity of the presentation. I could never have imagined that medical problems could be made so easily understandable. This chapter alone is worth the price of the entire book" (Anna Umu, London).
