1 Review
Completely revised and updated, this edition presents the principles and methodology of assessing both joint range of motion (ROM)/goniometry and manual muscle strength for the head, neck, trunk, and extremities. Each chapter is devoted to a separate anatomical region and provides knowledge of pertinent surface anatomy and deep anatomy. Excellent photography and illustrations enhance comprehension of techniques and serve as a self-learning tool. New to this edition: New vertical format; second-color added to line art; 200 new photographs; detailed coverage of ROM and muscle length assessment and measurement for each body region; comprehensive coverage of end feels for each joint motion; and chapter relating assessment methods to treatment techniques and activities of daily living. A useful resource for assessment and treatment!
