This is the first book to take an integrated approach to the assessment, repair, and rehabilitation of shoulder injuries. Nowhere else will sports-medicine and family-practice physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers find a reference covering the spectrum of therapy, diagnostic tests, surgery, and rehabilitation.
This unique reference focuses on methods of analysis and treatment that have been tested, used, and found successful in clinical settings for treating shoulder injuries. Many modified techniques, such as subacromial endoscopy and A/C-joint resection, are described for the first time. Moreover, the book includes 365 photos and 103 medical illustrations that help clarify surgical procedures.
The author's analysis of shoulder structure and function also will help physical therapists, athletic trainers, and team physicians gain a better understanding of this part of the anatomy.
Part I of Shoulder Injuries in Sport: Evaluation, Treatment, and Rehabilitation covers the analysis and diagnosis of shoulder injuries. Readers learn how to identify the anatomy of the shoulder, administer clinical exam techniques, and use a variety of analytic diagnostic tools, including X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, and EMG.
Ciullo also discusses new techniques and modifications he developed, such as the arthroscopic implantation of absorbable devices, exploration under the scapula, and the resectioning of inferior clavicle spurs.
Part II discusses assessment and treatment of specific shoulder injuries, including * overuse,* bone fracture,* sprain and strain,* common clinical patterns of osteoarthropathy, and* fibrosis and inflammation.
The principles of shoulder rehabilitation are covered in Part III. Ciullo presents both therapeutic and preventive exercises and stresses the importance of patient education and support.
Shoulder Injuries in Sport: Evaluation, Treatment, and Rehabilitation brings together treatment and rehabilitation, addressing the needs of all medical team members—physician, physical therapist, and athletic trainer—and opening the channels of communication between them to efficiently return the athlete to sport.
