Orthopedic Physical Assessment offers a straightforward, systematic approach to performing neuromusculoskeletal assessment and explains the rationale behind various aspects of the assessment. Every joint of the body is addressed, and separate chapters cover such specific topics as the principles of assessment, gait, posture, and the head and neck. It also offers unparalleled coverage of the extremities and clear explanations of positions and movements. In this edition, a new, full-color presentation engages readers with chapter outlines, chapter objectives, key terms and definitions, special tips/hints, and entirely new, full-color photographs and illustrations that clarify key points. This edition also provides more research data specific to the reliability and validity of tests. A companion DVD shows video clips of special tests and assessment tools.
