Synopses & Reviews
This text is intended as both a reference and a teaching aide. Covering all aspects of musculoskeletal examination, the book is organized in a logical manner from the top down--or from cervical spine to the upper extremities, lumbrosacral spine, lower extremities, and gait. The addition of basic differential diagnosis, photographs, clear radiographs, and 600 original two-colour drawings make this an extremely clear teaching and learning aide. Each original illustration shows both the topical exposure and the underlying muscles, bones and tendons that are being examined, with shades of colour differentiating them. Written jointly by an orthopaedic surgeon, a physiatrist, and a physical therapist, the book shows no specific biases. Instead, it contains a straightforward look at this important medical skill
