Treatment information on the right page allows the reader to promptly analyze both surgical and nonsurgical options, exercise and activity modification, prognosis, and follow-up management. This one-of-a-kind format provides quick understanding and utilization of appropriate treatment to musculoskeletal conditions and if necessary, allows for the appropriate referral to an orthopedic surgeon.
