The fully updated fifth edition of Injection Techniques in Musculoskeletal Medicine is a trusted step-by-step guide for a wide range of practitioners who deal with the management of painful joints and soft tissues, particularly in relation to sports and overuse injuries.

Area by area guidance is given for each lesion on appropriate patient selection and delivery of the drug. Every technique has its own two-page spread; the first consisting of a detailed but easy to follow description of the causes, positive assessment findings, anatomical details and injection procedure. The facing page shows an anatomical illustration of the region and a photograph showing the landmarks for the injection. This edition features brand new full colour photographs and case studies

An online trainer, which covers all the most common injection techniques and aims to test the reader’s knowledge, accompanies this edition. This trainer uses case studies, videos, animations and interactive self assessment on anatomical landmarks, differential diagnoses, assessment criteria, drug selection and technical skills. There is also access to a library of over 50 video clips showing supplementary injection techniques which clearly demonstrate the correct anatomical position for each needle insertion.

• Illustrations, references, lesions, drugs, controversies

• Chapters on Other Injectable Substances; Landmark and Image Guided Injections

• Latest evidence in injection therapy literature

• Adapted and simplified practical sections

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service

Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book covers the gamut of information available regarding musculoskeletal injections. This edition comes with a new title, replacing Injection Techniques in Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine, that appeared on the first three editions (1997, 2002, 2006) and provides updated online capabilities as well as the option for an online "trainer."
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a core database for all clinicians engaged in a clinical practice where they perform articular and periarticular aspirations and injections.
Audience: This book will appeal to, and is appropriate for, physicians, physiotherapists, nurses, and other health professionals involved in managing patients with musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries, whether in the context of primary or secondary care. The author is an established authority in this field.
Features: The book covers the evidence for the efficacy of injection therapy, clinical guidelines, and, finally, the techniques for essentially every type of musculoskeletal aspiration and injection. It does an excellent job of detailing complications and shortcomings of injections. The online Pageburst methodology is innovative and instructive. The references are extensive and current. Because the book is spiral bound, it likely will not last as long as a bound book would.
Assessment: This is a very useful book. The "trainer" is dynamic, providing anatomical landmarks in performing injections. This is a worthwhile addition to the musculoskeletal library.
