The Carpal Tunnel Helpbook Book Excerpt:

There are more than 500,000 carpal tunnel surgeries done annually in the United States but approximately 30 percent of these patients will be no better as a result. The truth is, most physicians are too quick to consider surgery as the first line of defense against carpal tunnel and other repetitive-strain injuries. In this comprehensive guide to recognizing and treating these debilitating conditions, Dr. Scott Fried takes a strong position against surgery and offers self-healing alternatives that have better results. From understanding the signs and symptoms at an early stage to modifying work and lifestyle; from proven alternative therapies and helpful medications to nutrition and exercise, The Carpal Tunnel Helpbook provides authoritative advice and practical, up-to-date information to spare many patients the ordeal of surgery to treat their injuries.

Perfecting Private Practice Book Excerpt:

In a readily-accessible, easy-to-read format, this book presents useful hints, suggestions, anecdotes and lists that will help you to look within, identify, and ultimately achieve your personal and professional goals. From getting started with the actual physical space that is your office to the incorporation and financial establishment of your practice, to dealing with the most unexpected, unpredictable clients and their expectations and to planning for the unexpected, the answers are here. The straightforward "hands-on" approach makes reading simple, the inclusion of anecdotes adds realism and interest, the quick checks provide instant reminders and cues and the self-disclosure questions aid in self-understanding. All of the suggestions are grounded in practice. Some may be familiar to you already; some may be novel and unexpected. Sometimes, however, simple reminders or hints can be the most powerful and with that in mind, this book was written in an attempt to demystify some of the confusion and/or uncertainty surrounding the successful establishment and functioning of a private practice.

The Repetitive Strain Injury Handbook Book Excerpt:

A proven recovery plan for the over 8 million sufferers of repetitive strain injury, and a guide for the prevention of future injuries. Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a painful, potentially disabling condition that most commonly stems from damage to the upper torso. Long-term misuse or overuse of everyday tools like computers and cash registers results in the painful hands, arms, and neck that are symptomatic of RSI, a condition whose incidence has increased 80 percent in this country since 1990. The Repetitive Strain Injury Handbook is a unique, user-friendly guide that is broken into two parts: (1) the 8-step recovery plan and (2) an RSI prevention guide. The 8-step plan moves RSI sufferers beyond the common denial of this ailment and into a diagnosis and treatment plan with a doctor. It provides: o Nutrition advice o An exercise program o Breathing tips o Traditional and alternative pain management suggestions o A holistic maintenance plan for long-term health The second section is filled with suggestions, stories, and tips for RSI sufferers that will help them live pain-free at home, at work, and in their social and intimate lives. There is also a special section of information on women and RSI, since pregnancy, PMS, osteoporosis, mastectomy, and menopause can all aggravate this condition.
