With 95% of all of the lower extremity pain syndromes and injuries not requiring any form of surgery, a book specializing in a conservative and thoughtful approach to most ailments is very needed. Dr Rich Blake tries to get the patient very involved with their own healing is obvious throughout the book. The emphasis of a conservative approach must require the patient's involvement. This book will help the patient know the subtleties of various treatments like stretching, strengthening, starting to run, looking for a stable shoe, power lacing for stability, which injection to get for a neuroma, why not to use NSAIDs if bone injury is suspected, when support hose are not doing the right job, etc.
Through the 35 years that Dr Richard Blake has practiced sports medicine, teaching his patients why certain treatments are used, and what they need to do, is always stressed. His teaching started with patients, but has involved both the national and international worlds of podiatry. He has given over 200 lectures around the world, written 40 plus articles, has a blog and YouTube channel, but his patient's needs and injuries have always come first. He considers his simple approach to most injuries probably boring to some podiatrists, but the patients have truly benefited. The approach that is emphasized in the book is to immediately create a healing environment, gradually get stronger, and gradually return to your previous activities. The book also emphasizes finding the cause or causes of the injury or it may eventually come back. The subtleties of the individual injury can be in the patient's presentation, how they respond to various treatments, and making changes appropriately when the treatment at times stalls.
This second book offers a unique quiz that will help you to classify your injury into one of four types. In this way, you will learn how to cure your pain, not someone else’s. Then the advice flows thick and fast. You will learn clever techniques that will help you to use your spine more efficiently, and discover how to think, eat, relax, and sleep away your pain. You’ll also find useful information on exercises, x-rays, medication and muscles, plus some tips on how to choose a spinal health practitioner. Of course, all of the advice will be tailored to your specific problem.
Because the cure uses well-proven techniques, your relief won’t just last a few days or weeks. You will feel better forever.
This atlas will serve as a valuable resource to orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and surgical trainees as well as physician assistants, surgical nurses, and all those involved in the operative care of patients undergoing spine surgery.
The truth is that if you’ve never felt any kind of shoulder pain whatsoever, the chances are good that as you grow older, you will. Our bodies tend to lose muscle and bone mass as we age, and we become more susceptible to the aches and pains that may result.
But neither the weakness nor the pain is inevitable. The shoulder can be fixed, and the pain can go away. First, there’s a fix that cures the weakness and ends the pain. But there are also things you can do to prevent injury or strain in the first place, so that you never have to lose the strength, stability, and range of motion of the shoulder at all. Fix My Shoulder explores the anatomy and function of the shoulder, methods of preventing pain and injury, and treatments for healing that anyone can implement for better shoulder health and function.
This edition includes new and updated information on aspiration of the joints, fracture reduction, traumatic lacerations, and multiple trauma.
This third edition is thoroughly revised and expanded with new chapters in different fields. Topics covered address automotive, aviation, military and other environments. Field data collection; injury coding/scaling; injury epidemiology; mechanisms of injury; human tolerance to injury; simulations using experimental, complex computational models (finite element modeling) and statistical processes; anthropomorphic test device design, development and validation for crashworthiness applications in topics cited above; and current regulations are covered. Risk functions and injury criteria for various body regions are included. Adult and pediatric populations are addressed. The exhaustive list of references in many areas along with the latest developments is valuable to all those involved or intend to pursue this important topic on human injury biomechanics and prevention.
The expanded edition will interest a variety of scholars and professionals including physicians, biomedical researchers in many disciplines, basic scientists, attorneys and jurists involved in accidental injury cases and governmental bodies. It is hoped that this book will foster multidisciplinary collaborations by medical and engineering researchers and academicians and practicing physicians for injury assessment and prevention and stimulate more applied research, education and training in the field of accidental-injury causation and prevention.
