This practical handbook is an essential reference for GPs when dealing with musculoskeletal disorders, as well as a useful
exam prep aid for the common MSK cases that occur in the CSA. Responding to increasing pressures on GPs to reduce the number
of referrals and treat more patients in the community, the book covers a breadth of orthopaedic disorders, with clear colour
photographs and diagrams to demonstrate techniques in practice. Chapters are authored by experts in each disorder with GP
input, putting a strong focus on diagnosis and easy-to-follow processes for deciding courses of action and investigation.
Each section explores the range of treatment options for that topic, including step-by-step injection techniques where relevant,
and signposts need-to-know areas with 'red flags'. This is an important reach-for guide to assist GPs with easy diagnosis
and to provide clear direction on next recommended steps.It will also be useful for medical students taking orthopaedics modules.
