This refreshing fourth edition of the established evidence-based textbook by Elaine Atkins, Jill Kerr and Emily Goodlad continues to uphold the Cyriax approach to clinical reasoning, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Renamed A Practical Approach to Musculoskeletal Medicine, to reflect globally understood terminology, it focuses on the principles and practice of musculoskeletal medicine, providing practical guidance and tips for clinical practice based on extensive clinical experience and evidence. The book is split into three sections.

  • Section 1 presents the theory underpinning musculoskeletal medicine. The histology and behaviour of the soft tissues follow, with a review of the healing process, to enhance understanding of the effects of injury on the soft tissues. The first section ends with the principles of treatment as applied in musculoskeletal medicine and discusses the techniques of mobilization and injection, aims and application, and indications for use.
  • Section 2 adopts a regional approach. Anatomy is presented, including useful tips on surface marking to locate commonly injured anatomical structures. Assessment, lesions and treatment techniques are discussed for each region as appropriate for the stage in the healing process.
  • Section 3 provides resources to support the recording of assessment and to ensure safety, especially whilst learning the musculoskeletal medicine approach.

A Practical Approach to Musculoskeletal Medicine comprehensively and critically discusses current literature. It is a complete reference source for students and postgraduate medical practitioners, physiotherapists, osteopaths and other allied health professionals, including occupational therapists and podiatrists. It is essential reading.

The latest edition of this popular textbook continues to offer accessible, practical and clinically relevant information on the management of minor injuries. Reflecting the author’s long experience as a practitioner and teacher, the volume covers anatomy, examination and specific injuries in the depth that the specialty requires. Injuries to all parts of the body are included. Richly illustrated throughout – with many original images based on the author’s own designs – the volume is also accompanied by online videos where the author demonstrates the limb examinations which are described in the text. The new edition has expanded to survey the law and the basic principles for X-ray requesting and interpretation in minor injury areas. The volume also offers more detailed guidance on the specific X-rays which are required for each of the limb joints. This material is intended to satisfy the legal training requirements for new practitioners to request X-rays as non-medical referrers. Fully updated to include the latest guidelines and current practice on minor injuries of every kind, the third edition now offers a more comprehensive structure for the specialty of minor injuries, based on injuries to the limb and to the midline. Within the different topics under these broad headings, advice is given on the care of children, adults and the elderly. Minor Injuries: A Clinical Guide, third edition, will be indispensable to every trainee, from nursing and from other professions, and to those who are already qualified and who wish to expand or update their practice. The volume also aims to equip practitioners to work in stand-alone units, seeing every patient who presents, and as such is ideal for those undertaking Advanced Practice training. The book also offers teachers of minor injuries a rationale for their sessions and a framework for designing their courses.

Orthopaedic physiotherapy is one of the major specialities of the art and science of physiotherapy. It plays a vital role in the rehabilitation of the physically handicapped. This book discusses the essentials of orthopaedics and applied physiotherapy with an interspeciality therapeutic approach. There are large number of books on orthopaedics and physiotherapy, but all deal with these subjects as separate entities. No book provides overall picture of total therapeutic of total therapeutic management. An effort has been made to fill this gap. The book is mainly targeted for the students of physiotherapy and practicing physiotherapists, but it would also be useful for orthopaedic surgeons and people engaged in the rehabilitation of the physically handicapped.

Diagnostic Clusters in Shoulder Conditions

This book serves as a definitive guide to diagnosing shoulder conditions for all levels of orthopaedic surgeon with an interest in shoulder pathology, and for junior surgeons in training. It comes at a time when the knowledge regarding shoulder conditions has vastly improved, with the shoulder sub-speciality growing at a rapid pace in terms of practitioner numbers, procedures and evidence-base. However, with the multitude of special tests for shoulder conditions, the clinician faces a variety of sensitivities and specificities of the respective tests. It is unclear, in most circumstances, which single test is the best and growing evidence confirms that a set of tests is superior for diagnosing shoulder conditions. This forms the basis of cluster testing, which is the key concept for the title and content of this book. In many common shoulder diagnoses the preference for clusters has been reflected in both experience and clinical evidence, but for conditions where evidence for clusters is less clear, a consensus-based approach is utilised by the authors of this key resource for diagnosing shoulder conditions.
