Practicing physical medicine and rehabilitation physician Grant Cooper, MD, provides a concise step-by-step approach to confidently establishing a working clinical diagnosis and finding appropriate treatment options for the most common musculoskeletal ailments. Organized by body region and written with superb clarity, this guide details the important questions to ask in history taking, the physical examination maneuvers appropriate for each pathology, the possible explanations and additional tests needed to diagnose the condition, and the most up-to-date treatment options available. The author offers clear explanations why each step in the history and physical examination is performed and discusses the basic pathophysiological processes involved. The ailments covered include neck and shooting arm pain; shoulder pain; elbow pain; wrist and hand pain; low back, hip, and shooting leg pain; knee pain, ankle pain, and foot pain. Numerous photographs demonstrate the correct hands-on methods for physical examination of the patient.
I read the 1 star review and agree that there are some issues, but they are very few and far between. The book is an excellent resource that is laid out well, with the physiology and anatomy then the H&P stuff. It is simple and quick. It is not quite as “pockety” as I’d thought it would be. It is thin, but at 8.25×5.25, it doesn’t fit in all my pockets. Never-the-less, it is an easy concise reference that I am already using a lot.
This book has excellent pictures and descriptions. Not for a novice reader. It is expensive for a paperback, but the information is very accurate and useful.
