Summary

Primary care practitioners are often the first medical professionals to see patients after an injury, making it critical for them to stay up to date on the latest developments in sports medicine.

Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine for the Primary Care Practitioner contains the most current information on major topics in sports science and clinical medicine. It is a valuable resource for primary care physicians and allied health professionals who practice, teach, and hold specialty certifications in sports medicine and related fields.

The book discusses key concepts related to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sports injuries. This edition adds new sections on pro-inflammatory treatments, field-side acupuncture, and brief musculoskeletal ultrasound as well as a new chapter on wellness and video illustrations of important musculoskeletal maneuvers at www.crcpress.com/9781482220117.

The book follows the Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy (SORT), which addresses the quality, quantity, and consistency of evidence. It recommends levels of patient-oriented evidence to assist physicians in their diagnoses. Also included is a link to videos that demonstrate important musculoskeletal maneuvers used in sports medicine.

As exercise and sports move beyond the realm of leisurely activity to a necessary component of good health, this book has become an important resource for all those involved in sports medicine.
