Broken bones ISBN: 9780431021546
Royston, Angela
Published by Heinemann (It's Not Catching series), 2005
This book covers not only broken bones but sprains, dislocated joints and torn ligaments. Large print, clear photographs and diagrams (though I did find the diagram 'How a broken bone mends' a tad confusing) and excellent basic information explain the facts simply but thoroughly. How broken bones, sprains, etc. happen is covered, as well as how these accidents are treated. We see a physiotherapist helping with exercises, and there is a short section on preventing accidents too. Good, detailed information at the most basic level. Excellent for A & E departments. There is an index, a glossary, and a list of further books.
