Textbook of Primary Care Sports Medicine is geared to the primary care physician who will act as team doctor or the first attending physician after a sports-related injury. It is important for that physician to make a quick diagnosis and start treatment where possible, or to send the patient to an orthopeadic surgeon etc. Edited by a primary care sports physician and an orthopaedic surgeon, this volume sets out to describe common and rare injuries based on anatomic region, including the physical examination, patient history, thus telling the physician how to sort out various causes of musculoskeletal pain. Case examples accentuate this information. Diagnostic testing (x-rays, MRI etc) are discussed from the perspective of "are they really needed and why", "how do they help and can the physician get along without them", "what views are needed" etc. Treatment stresses non-surgical aspects but surgery is discussed from the point of view of when the physician should think about it and when to refer the patient to an orthopeadic surgeon.
