The second edition of this handy pocket-sized book presents a
comprehensive collection of clinical tests for all the major musculoskeletal
structures. The tests are divided into separate sections based on body region.
Each chapter opens with a figure depicting range of motion and an algorithm that
provides a rapid overview of symptoms, tests, imaging, and diagnosis. For each
clinical test, the author provides step-by-step descriptions of the methodology,
starting at the patient's initial position, and then describes the evaluation
and possible diagnosis.



Highlights:



  • Succinct description of initial tests, functional
    tests, stress tests, and stability tests

  • More than 550 instructive line drawings that
    demonstrate key concepts in a precise fashion

  • Coverage of posture deficiencies, thrombosis, and
    arterial ischemic disorders

  • Lists of recommended references for additional reading


This book is an invaluable guide to selecting the appropriate tests for the
clinical examination. It is ideal for orthopaedists, physical medicine and
rehabilitation specialists, physical therapists, osteopathic physicians, and residents in these specialties.
