Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Neck pain is one of the most common reasons for patient visits to orthopedic, physiatrist, primary care and sports medicine offices. Most books that cover this topic review it as a chapter within a larger book on orthopedics as a whole, or they focus on one specific aspect of spinal pathology. This practical text is an evidence-based, user-friendly review of the literature for the breadth of cervical injuries and conditions that present to the busy practitioner. Opening with a review of the relevant anatomy, subsequent chapters discuss strains and sprains, facet joint and discogenic pain, radiculopathy and myelopathy. Additional chapters cover sports trauma and fractures as well as rheumatologic causes and considerations. And while reviewing pathology and its diagnosis and treatment is important, proceeding through real case studies is extremely valuable in bringing the diagnosis and treatment of neck pathologies to life, hence an engaging section of clinical case material rounds out the presentation.
