Sports Medicine Consult : A Problem-Based Approach to Sports Medicine for the Primary Care Physician Hardback
Edited by Brian D. Busconi, J. Herbert Stevenson
This book provides clinicians treating athletes at the point of care with concise, practical keys to evaluation and functional treatment of sports-related problems.
It is organized by chief complaint and guides clinicians to a rational differential diagnosis, a thorough history and physical exam, appropriate diagnostic testing, an accurate diagnosis, a sports-specific treatment plan, and safe return-to-play recommendations.
Bulleted sections, icons, and a uniform layout help readers quickly find key information to make a diagnosis, order tests, initiate treatment, recognize indications for referral, and identify red flags.
Appendices describe injection techniques and detail progressive return-to-play programs for throwing and running athletes.
