About this book
This book covers all the soft-tissue and joint conditions that physicians will commonly encounter in primary care.
Soft tissue injections include tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tenosynovitis, tendinitis, trigger finger, carpal tunnel, painful heel, painful ligaments, sacroiliac joint strain, and bursae.
Joint injections include the thumb carpometacarpal joint, wrist joint, elbow joint, shoulder joint, knee joint and ankle joint.
Throughout this book, each condition is described and illustrated with a clinical picture, X-rays (where appropriate), the surgical anatomy and the injection technique.
In addition, carpal tunnel injection is demonstrated in a video.
Along with its companion books in the Minor Surgery series, this work will be of great benefit to primary care doctors, dermatologists and medical students.
Despite the continuing ongoing debate regarding the use and efficacy of depot steroids, steroid injections continue to have a definite place in the management of a number of soft tissue and joint conditions.
