Since its first publication, almost two decades ago, A
System of Orthopaedic Medicine
has proven to be a reliable resource and
guide for those clinicians working in the field of orthopaedic medicine who assess and treat the effects of musculoskeletal pain. It describes a logical system of
clinical examination of all musculoskeletal structures. By carefully following
the examination sequence described, the clinician can be confident of arriving
at an accurate diagnosis around which to plan the appropriate treatment.
This third edition remains focused on clinical reasoning and diagnosis, with detailed guidance on palpation of the anatomical
structures and the correct performance of each therapeutic technique.
Following the ‘System’, the clinician first completes a systematic
clinical assessment of the joints involved, and then, after interpreting the results, groups the disorders and conditions into clinical syndromes.
Finally, the natural history and the conservative treatment of each condition are discussed accordingly.
The system relies entirely on basic clinical
skills and requires none of the apparatus usually found only in hospitals. For
this reason it will be of particular value to family doctors, physiotherapists,
rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons and those working in sports medicine.
treatments described are simple and have proved their effectiveness through
time. For any treatment to be successful, accurate diagnosis must be followed
by carefully focused therapy to the affected area. For this reason,
considerable detail is given on palpation of the anatomical structures and the
correct performance of each therapeutic technique.
Building on the previous edition, A System of Orthopaedic Medicine now comes with access to online resources designed to support and enhance the
learning experience of each and every clinician using the book. The new edition has been streamlined for easier access and handling by transferring
all the applied anatomy chapters, references, links and other selected chapters onto the online resources.
System of Orthopaedic Medicine
is a book that no practitioner concerned with providing the most appropriate
treatment and rehabilitation program for musculoskeletal disorders should
