This pocket handbook for third- and fourth-year medical students and non-orthopedic clinicians is a quick, problem-focused tool for evaluating patients with musculoskeletal disorders. It teaches students basic orthopedic exam skills needed for many clinical rotations, and guides primary care and emergency/urgent care practitioners in initial evaluation of musculoskeletal problems.

The consistent chapter format includes exam basics, orthopedic pearls, range of motion, specific muscles and their evaluation, and illustrated techniques for specific exams. A "Quick Look" feature briefly summarizes pertinent tests for each anatomical area. The book includes 120 drawings by the author, 39 x-rays, and numerous references for further information.
