This practical handbook is an essential reference for GPs when dealing with musculoskeletal disorders, as well as a useful exam prep aid for the common MSK cases that occur in the CSA. Responding to increasing pressures on GPs to reduce the number of referrals and treat more patients in the community, the book covers a breadth of orthopaedic disorders, with clear colour photographs and diagrams to demonstrate techniques in practice. Chapters are authored by experts in each disorder with GP input, putting a strong focus on diagnosis and easy-to-follow processes for deciding courses of action and investigation. Each section explores the range of treatment options for that topic, including step-by-step injection techniques where relevant, and signposts need-to-know areas with ‘red flags’. This is an important reach-for guide to assist GPs with easy diagnosis and to provide clear direction on next recommended steps.It will also be useful for medical students taking orthopaedics modules.

Review “This book could make an excellent contribution to improving GPs knowledge and understanding of the variety of musculoskeletal problems that we see on a daily basis. Its slimness means that it concentrates on the common issues and that I suspect that most people would want it to help them deal with front line problems. Equally its slimness is a physical advantage in that it can be kept in the consulting room within easy access for the healthcare professional to quickly read up on a topic.”Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia, December 2017 –This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity. It has covered virtually all aspects of orthopaedic that as a practicing GP one could expect to come across in everyday consultations. Needless to say a good chunk of our workload including secondary care referrals are musculoskeletal related. Each topic has been presented in a concise simple English which someone with a nominal knowledge of anatomy, an average clinical examination skills and with short concentration span could read, understand and then put it into practice. This book I felt helps to make decisive plans for the patient at the end of a MSK related consultation which may well be in fact what “NOT to do”.Before putting my hard earned £30 odd pounds on the book, I initially borrowed it from a friend who had recommended it to me. My last 3 months orthopaedic referral had decreased by 30% as compared to preceding 3 months. An audit sorted for next years appraisal. The book has given me the necessary confidence to reassure my patients in certain situations which I was lacking, has helped me direct patients more appropriately to other complementary services and more pleasingly manage a good few of them with active intervention by myself in the form of joint injections and showing few simple exercise techniques.I’ve now bought this book and returned my friends copy. I can not emphasize enough this £30 odd pounds on this book is definitely worth spending if you’re a down to earth clinical GP.

⭐Very informative to a busy General Practitioner as it has clearly well laid out chapters for various joint disorders and also included are useful topics pertaining to basic rheumatological conditions, physiotherapy and orthopaedic problems in children. Foot and ankle diseases has been very well dealt with and the author’s tips of take home messages are worth the read. There are useful tips on joint injections which is an added bonus.However, there are some chapters which are rather elaborative from a GP’s perspective and take home tips in all the chapters would have been welcome(if relevant). Radio graphic images and pictures enhance the value of the presentation, but the description accompanying them could have been better.Also top tips on when to refer to a specialist would have been useful too. For these reasons, I haven’t given it a five star rating.The quality of the book and the contents certainly merit being on my shelf and will provide an useful resource for years to come.

⭐Highly recommended. Every section gave me knowledge which will change and improve my practice
