Personal Injury: A Medico-Legal Guide to the Spine and Limbs, Second Edition
Unlike conventional anatomy or diagnostic texts, this book requires no specific knowledge of medical science. Legal readers are offered a compact overview of medical principles and the theory of injuries. Appropriate diagrams, followed by an easily accessed yet thorough catalogue of specific injuries and disabilities, are included, along with an overview of their effect on the standard of life.
Throughout, the text focuses on the functional and economic impact of particular injuries and considers the long-term lifestyle effects of various disabilities.
This edition contains extended material on pain, fibromyalgia and rehabilitation, and includes a chapter on workplace reintegration.
