Primary Orthopedic Care by Christy L. Crowther RN MS CRNP

Written by a nurse practitioner who specializes in orthopedics, PRIMARY ORTHOPEDIC CARE uses a symptom-based approach to common orthopedic disorders seen in the primary-care setting, with additional emphasis on sports-related injuries. An introductory section of differential diagnosis charts for each extremity helps the practitioner find the correct diagnosis for the presenting disorder. Also included are specific recommendations about referring a patient to an orthopedic specialist. Over 400 illustrations further aid the practitioner in performing orthopedic procedures and arriving at the correct diagnosis. * Organizes information from upper to lower extremity for a head-to-toe discussion of primary care orthopedics. * Features Red Flags boxes in each extremity chapter, listing indication for referral to specialists. * Includes more than 400 illustrations to aid the primary care practitioner in diagnosis. * Incorporates a discussion of anatomy in the beginning of each extremity chapter to provide a quick review for primary care providers who may not regularly treat musculoskeletal disorders. * Organizes disorders in a logical format: history, examination, diagnosis, and treatment. * Includes discussion of evaluation modalities at the end of each chapter, and goes into further detail about x-rays, computed tomography, and bone scans. * Discusses the indications, methods, medications and materials to be used for corticosteroid and anesthetic injections to treat various musculoskeletal disorders in a separate Injections chapter.
