In response to the great demand for an English edition of the standard German handbook, Systematic Musculoskeletal Examination will soon be available. This comprehensive book contains up-to-date information for the orthopedic examination of the locomotor apparatus. In addition to the well-known techniques of the musculoskeletal examination, it also describes in detail the diagnostic techniques used in manual medicine. The numerous examinations are carried out according to five clearly defined examination stages which are the same for each joint and allow a systematic examination of the individual joint structures for functional disorders or disruptive effects (functional structural analysis). The examination is thus logically organized according to an outline, and the indications for each stage are based on the results of the previous stage and the summary of the functionally related body regions. The functions tests take into account the state of the art in biomechanics, and the symptoms requiring radiologic functional diagnosis are depicted. The systematized and streamlined examination procedure makes it possible to obtain and document results in a uniform manner. The all-inclusive nature of the text, guided by a well-designed systematic and methodical approach, will make it attractive to anyone dealing with the musculoskeletal system.
