Book Description

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.
