Taylor's Family Medicine: Principles and Practice, Sixth Edition, is critically acclaimed and widely used by family physicians in the U.S. and abroad. This derivative handbook utilizes that success to address the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and injuries in the primary care setting. Taylor's Musculoskeletal Problems and Injuries: A Handbook covers problems involving all areas of the skeleton and related musculature in both children and adults. Since primary care clinicians manage most sports injuries, athletic injuries are discussed in depth. In addition to sprains, strains, and fractures, chapters cover illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system--various types of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and the complex regional pain syndrome. This handbook is an essential reference on musculoskeletal problems and injuries that proves itself indispensable to family physicians, general internists, general pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
