With the rise in active participation in sports and exercise by older people, Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for Active Older Adults is both timely and instructive. It explores the issues involved in working with active older adults, providing a valuable resource to help sports medicine professionals prevent, diagnose, and treat injuries for this growing population. Geared toward those working with active seniors--from competitive and recreational athletes to fitness enthusiasts--Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for Active Older Adults contains the information to help practitioners -strengthen their understanding of general issues in sports medicine for active seniors; -explore prevention of, and determine treatment for, specific injuries; -apply to their own practice the knowledge of specialists experienced in working with older populations; and -implement and supervise appropriate conservative therapies. Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for Active Older Adults was written by a team of specialists with extensive experience in treating active seniors. While it emphasizes conservative treatment over surgery, it also guides readers in knowing when to refer a client to a surgeon, how to prepare a client for what might happen when referred, and what type of surgery might be indicated. Therapists and trainers will strengthen their ability to explain their basis for both treatment and referral. Part I focuses on a variety of issues in sports medicine for active seniors, including senescent changes in the musculoskeletal system, exercise testing and prescription, and factoring the kinetic chain into prevention and therapy. Flexibility, stretching, and massage for older people are also covered, as are nutrition, nutritional supplements, and pharmacology. Part II, organized by anatomical areas, delves into specific injuries and conditions in active seniors. This approach helps readers easily locate regional musculoskeletal problems and identify appropriate rehabilitation procedures. These regions include the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, spine, hip, knee, and foot and ankle. Common injuries, conditions, and treatments are explored in each area. Accompanying photos and illustrations supplement the text, showing stretches for all parts of the body, exercises for both injury prevention and rehabilitation, diagnostic techniques (including special tests and best X-ray positions) and various treatment options. The result is a reference that facilitates understanding of the issues involved in preventing and treating injuries in active older people and in helping them recover and return to full activity as soon as possible.

Release On

Now, more than ever, Family Medicine is alive and well in the United States. The base of this medical specialty has traditionally been in the smaller cities, suburban communities, and rural areas of this country. Over the past decade, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in primary care in our major metropolitan areas as a solution to the high tech subspecialty pace of the tertiary care environment. A rebirth of urban family medicine has accompanied these pioneering efforts. To date, the accomplishments are substantial and the prospects are bright. There is still a long way to go and there are a significant number of hurdles to cross. Although diseases are generally the same wherever you are, their effects as illness on the individual and the family are strongly influenced by the environment and social milieu. Urban families have distinctive and diverse problems-cultural, economic, and ethnic. Training pro grams situated in the large cities must recognize these issues and include special emphasis on the situations that the family physician is likely to encounter during and after his training. There is very little research literature on the background and nature of special urban problems and these areas are the subject of several chapters of this long overdue volume devoted specifically to urban family medicine. Dr. Birrer has persuaded true experts to share their knowledge with the reader.

Diversos estudios y terapias tratan con seguridad y eficacia las enfermedades graves de la columna vertebral y los problemas neurológicos importantes. El problema real es el dolor no específico de la zona lumbar: el síntoma corporal cotidiano que nos afecta a la mayoría de nosotros alguna vez en nuestra vida adulta. El tratamiento médico tradicional para el dolor de espalda es el reposo, basado en principios y enseñanzas ortopédicos. Pero hay poca base científica para el reposo y toda la evidencia epidemiológica es que este enfoque ha fracasado. El reposo prolongado no sólo es malo para la espalda, es desastroso para los pacientes. La nutrición y la salud musculosquelética depende del movimiento y del uso. La rehabilitación del sistema locomotor se está convirtiendo rápidamente en la norma del cuidado de los trastornos neuromusculosqueléticos. El modelo de "medicina deportiva" se ha aplicado a la espalda y se le ha denominado recuperación funcional. Este libro ha sido diseñado para integrar los campos de la quiropraxia, de la práctica miofascial y del ejercicio en un enfoque coste-efectivo de los trastornos de la columna vertebral, y para descubrir cómo pasar de las terapias basadas en cuidados pasivos a los enfoques de cuidados activos, aspecto básico de la rehabilitación del sistema locomotor. El libro aparece dividido en cinco sesiones en las que se desarrollan los siguientes temas: Orientaciones para el tratamiento efectivo y económico del dolor de la columna vertebral; Integración de la rehabilitación en la quiropraxia; Ciencia del entrenamiento y del ejercicio; Evaluación del desequilibrio muscular; Diagnóstico de la disfunción muscular mediante inspección; Back school; Educación del paciente; Función de la manipulación en la rehabilitación de la columna vertebral; Terapias vertebrales basadas en las respuestas a la carga; Programa de ejercicios de estabilización de la columna vertebral; Estimulación motora sensorial; Trastornos posturales del eje corporal; Lesión lumbar en el deportista; Protocolos de rehabilitación activa; Interacción médico-paciente, etc.
