A complete, evidence-based guide to orthopaedic evaluation and treatment
5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"Major areas in orthopedics including anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics of movement are covered, along with a healthy dose of pathology that impacts patient function. Clinical pearls appear in highlighted boxes throughout, and camera icons indicate where video clips should be viewed. This second edition is more comprehensive than the first. Overall, this is a valuable reference that achieves a nice balance between detailing examination and treatment. Other books tend to be limited to addressing only one of these areas, but not both. This combination makes the book unique." -- Doody's
Acclaimed in its first edition, this one-of-a-kind, well-illustrated resource delivers a vital evidence-based look at orthopaedics in a single volume. It is the ultimate source of orthopaedic examination, evaluation, and interventions, distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach to PT practice.
Turn to any page, and you'll find the consistent, unified voice of a single author-a prominent practicing therapist who delivers step-by-step guidance on the examination of each joint and region. This in-depth coverage leads clinicians logically through systems review and differential diagnosis, aided by decision-making algorithms for each joint. It's all here: everything from concise summaries of functional anatomy and biomechanics, to an unmatched overview of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
