Attività fisica e riabilitativa nel trattamento dell'osteoporosi

Giovanni Arioli, Monica Manfredini

editore: Mattioli 1885

pagine: 76

La principale caratteristica di questo volume sull'osteoporosi è rappresentata dall'enfasi posta sull'attività fisica che viene proposta quale "coprotagonista interattiva" della terapia farmacologica e come tale inserita in uno specifico processo terapeutico. Gli esercizi proposti sono funzionali alle singole unità muscolo-scheletriche e, mutuando le moderne nozioni derivate dalla Medicina sportiva, viene posto anche l'accento su concetti quali riscaldamento e defaticamento, estremamente critici ove si pensi alle caratteristiche dei pazienti e allo stato di fragilità che spesso li caratterizza. Non manca un richiamo alla prevenzione fisica al rischio di caduta che, da sempre, rappresenta un punto critico quando si parli di fratture osteoporotiche. Il tutto è accompagnato poi da illustrazioni chiare ed esplicative che ne facilitano l'applicazione alla comune pratica clinica.

Osteoporosis in Men

The Effects of Gender on Skeletal Health

Dirk Vanderschueren, Eric S. Orwoll
e altri

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 741

Since the publication of the first edition, the U.S. Surgeon General released the first-ever report on bone health and osteoporosis in October 2004. This report focuses even more attention on the devastating impact osteoporosis has on millions of lives. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 2 million American men have osteoporosis, and another 12 million are at risk for this disease. Yet despite the large number of men affected, the lack of awareness by doctors and their patients puts men at a higher risk that the condition may go undiagnosed and untreated. It is estimated that one-fifth to one-third of all hip fractures occur in men. This second edition brings on board John Bilezikian and Dirk Vanderschueren as editors with Eric Orwoll. The table of contents is more than doubling with 58 planned chapters. The format is larger - 8.5 x 11. This edition of "Osteoporosis in Men" brings together even more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field, and describe state-of-the-art research as well as practical approaches to diagnosis, prevention, and therapy. The key features of the book include: brings together more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field; describes state-of-the-art research as well as practical approaches to diagnosis, prevention and therapy; and there is no book on the market that covers osteoporosis in men as comprehensively as this book.

Osteoporosis is a global threat because it can impact every human being as they age. In this new edition, the authors point out the enormous scale of the problem in terms of human suffering, morbidity and mortality on the one hand, and the astronomical national costs on the other. Written in an easy-to-read style, this book updates physicians on the current knowledge about bone structure, physiology and pathology, with an emphasis on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of osteoporosis. Its purpose is to educate members of the medical profession about this widespread and potentially disabling disease, while providing information on related current evidence-based medicine. The book covers everything from basic physiology to osteoporosis diagnosis, including utility of specialized tests and current treatment recommendations, and will provide the primary care physician with sound medical knowledge in the prevention and management of osteoporosis. It is up-beat and optimistic, with a touch of humor; it is scientifically based but provides easy-to-follow guidelines for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function. Osteoporosis is preventable if doctors want it to be, and every doctor can contribute. Bone is every doctor's and every body's business.

Anthony D. Woolf, Kristina Akesson

editore: Clinical Publishing,an imprint of Atlas Medical Publishing Ltd

pagine: 144

Osteoporosis is a devastating disorder with significant physical and psychosocial consequences. For example, one in three women and one in 12 men over the age of 50 in the UK already suffer from osteoporosis, and every three minutes it is estimated that someone has a fracture due to this disease. This pattern is repeated elsewhere in the world. However, due to the remarkable progress in the scientific understanding of its causes, diagnosis and treatment, osteoporosis is now largely preventable. "Osteoporosis: An Atlas of Investigation and Management" is a pictorial reference book designed to help doctors understand, prevent and overcome osteoporosis. This practical guide gives advice on how to diagnose and manage patients with this condition and reviews the epidemiology, symptoms, clinical investigations, and the various treatments and interventions. It is a complete visual guide to diagnosis and management of an increasingly prevalent chronic disorder. It is suitable for doctors in both primary and secondary care.
