Welcome to this week's Urgent Bite.  Today I review a book that I have used for a number of years to assist me in managing fractures.  

This is a personal review based on my experiences using the book having purchased it myself.  No incentive or correspondance has been received from the publishers or authors.  This is a book I would recommend to my Urgent Care colleagues to aid in the management of the types of injuries we see in Urgent Care Clinics.
