This book is dedicated to my great interest in acupuncture and belive that traditional medicine can help the conventional medicine to treat some health problems like acute or chronic pain, headache, frozen shoulder, sinusitis, low back pain etc. There is a need for a serious scientific research to show on which way acupuncture can influence on our health. I am sure that every day acupuncturists are learing something new in the field of traditional medicine and their influence is growing.
Bringing together the current knowledge and evidence about the causes and management of tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, the diagnosis and various treatment options for this common sports injury are presented in detail. Generally attributed to overexertion or repetitive motion of the elbow joint, tennis elbow causes pain, tenderness and stiffness in the elbow and wrist even in non-athletic, day-to-day activities, such as lifting and pulling. Beginning with its etiology, subsequent chapters explore both conservative and surgical treatments, from physical therapy, joint injections and acupuncture to arthroscopy, open surgery and denervation. Outcomes, rehabilitation and return to play are also discussed, as are techniques and indications for handling complications and revision surgery. Ideal for orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine practitioners, Tennis Elbow: Clinical Management is a practical reference for any clinician treating athletes or active patients.
This dissertation in psychology looks at ways of enhancing the health of drug users in prison. A new screening instrument for drug use disorders is presented, and separate prison studies evaluate auricular acupuncture as well as cognitive-behavioral treatment. An approach to treatment of inmates with so-called dual diagnosis - drug use and psychiatric disorders - is also explored in a pilot study of long-term auricular acupuncture. The empirical results are discussed within the framework of recent findings on offender rehabilitation and treatment for drug use. Based on perspectives of risk management, "good lives" and existential psychology, a new model for enhancing health among drug users in prison is proposed. This work should be of particular interest to practitioners, teachers, researchers and students in the areas of psychology, social work, criminology and addiction, psychiatric and forensic medicine.
