Book Description :

Providing a balanced, evidence-based discussion of whiplash and its associated disorders, Whiplash: A Patient Centered Approach to Management compiles information from many sources into a single, definitive reference. It clearly delineates rationales and procedures, covering cervical spine anatomy, neurology, kinesiology, epidemiology, patient history and assessment, imaging, soft tissue injuries, articular lesions, rehabilitation, and prognosis. Using numerous full-color photos and illustrations, an expert author team led by Dr. Meridel Gatterman offers concrete guidelines for a patient-centered approach to care of whiplash and whiplash-related conditions -- one that recommends minimally invasive procedures and therapies whenever possible. A companion Evolve website includes video clips showing stretching exercises, printable patient handouts, and narrated PowerPoint slides. A patient-centered approach to care emphasizes working with patients as partners, with both preferring minimally invasive procedures and therapies where appropriate, in a way that promotes self-healing, a holistic approach to the patient, and a humanistic attitude with regard to the patient/practitioner relationship. An easy-to-follow organization helps you to clearly identify whiplash and plan a course of treatment, beginning with an in-depth description of whiplash and the various approaches to treatment and moving on to cover the anatomy of the cervical spine, the mechanism of injury, physical examination, and imaging, then continuing with the management of whiplash injuries and complications such as headaches and joint injuries. Full-color photos and illustrations clarify concepts and procedures. Evidence-based content is based on findings in current literature, and cited in chapter references. Coverage of both typical and less common types of whiplash injuries helps you accurately assess varied symptoms and avoid overlooking any related signs and symptoms. Detailed coverage of the relationship between the cervical spine and the cervical distribution of the autonomic nervous system helps you recognize the potential complications of whiplash and how nerve anatomy informs these complications. More than 20 tables and charts provide a quick reference to facilitate review of the material. A glossary provides definitions and pronunciations of terms related to whiplash. Expert author Meridel Gatterman, MA, DC, MEd, is one of the leading chiropractic academics in the U.S., has written several other chiropractic textbooks and many peer-reviewed journal articles, has served as both a Dean and Director for two different chiropractic schools, and currently acts as a Consultant to the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners. A companion Evolve website includes video clips of a chiropractor performing stretching exercises, plus an image collection, narrated PowerPoint slides, and printable patient handouts.

Book Description :

Primary Orthopedic Care, 2nd Edition offers the most practical approach to common orthopedic disorders in the primary care setting. Content is organized from upper to lower extremities, beginning with symptoms rather than a diagnosis for use in the patient care setting. Nine major orthopedic areas are thoroughly covered, as well as injections for musculoskeletal disorders. Presentation and history, the most crucial diagnostic tools, are discussed in a separate section within each orthopedic area. In addition, anatomy and physiology, examination, diagnosis (including imaging modalities) and treatment are consistently covered in each region. Its emphasis on differential diagnosis, with clear cautions indicating when to refer a patient to a specialist, make this book a valuable guide for nurse practitioners in primary care. A unique appendix entitled Keys to Common Diagnoses assists in diagnosing the presenting orthopedic disorder with a quick "signs and symptoms" reference guide with corresponding text pages for further explanation. Red Flags boxes indicate when to refer a patient to a specialist. Each disorder is arranged to cover history, examination, diagnosis and treatment, and key recommendations for referral or consultation. Each orthopedic region includes descriptions of imaging studies (X-ray, MRI, CT and bone scans) and other evaluation modalities. A chapter on injections (chapter 10) describes indications, methods, medications and materials to use for corticosteroid and anesthetic injections. Brief anatomy and physiology reviews open each chapter. Content is organized from upper to lower extremities and includes spinal areas as well. More than 300 illustrations demonstrate techniques for diagnosis and orthopedic procedures. Coverage of Paget's disease and other metabolic bone disorders is included, as well as a section on bone tumors that describes the general clinical and radiographic characteristics of benign and malignant tumors. Additional clinical illustrations, including x-ray images, pathology photos, and photos of braces/splints highlight important findings. This edition features expanded coverage of several topics: Osteoporosis (in men, non-whites, testing/screening, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, differential diagnosis). Low back pain (spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, differential diagnosis, herniated nucleus pulposus, tumors). Arthritis (rheumatoid disease, fibromyalgia). Arm and elbow pathological abnormalities. Evaluation and treatment sections (such as evaluation modalities/imaging studies for knee & leg soft tissue studies).
