Arthritis is a major cause of joint pain, but there are myriad others. This is the first book to provide everyday readers with a comprehensive guide to musculoskeletal disease and pain, from degenerative arthritis in the elderly to common sports injuries in young athletes. Dr. Joseph Abboud and Dr. Soo Kim Abboud offer clear, medically based information on the most common diseases to affect the musculoskeletal system. They explain each major joint in detail and draw on their extensive experience with patients to offer sound advice on treatment and prevention options. They also discuss the pros and cons of alternative medicine techniques, and they assess which of the newest technologies really work. With one hundred illustrations, specific instructions for beneficial exercises, and a helpful glossary, this manual is just what the doctor ordered for weekday warriors and anyone else who is contending with joint pain. A separate chapter devoted to each major joint include: Back; Hip; Knee; Foot and ankle; Shoulder; Elbow; and, Hand and wrist.
