The book is a useful tool to involve patients in their own healthcare programs by demystifying the musculoskeletal system, its care and maintenance, says co-editor Ramon L. Jimenez, MD. The other editors were Letha Y. Griffin, MD, PhD; Glenn B. Pfeffer, MD; and John F. Sarwark, MD.
The soft-cover guide is priced at $19.95, and volume discounts are available for AAOS members. Members also can receive a free promotional kit to help promote the book. The kit includes a copy of The Body Almanac, three colorful posters, two easel-backed display signs for the lobby area and 25 ergonomic grip-strengthening jar openers to distribute to patients.
