Chapters include an overview of muscle strength assessment and detail precise anatomic testing techniques for upper extremities, lower extremities, and head, neck and trunk; functional muscle tests; tests for mental status, cranial nerves and superficial reflexes; and use of observational gait analysis as a screening tool. Photographs of testing procedures, line drawings of various innervations, and video clips showing manual muscle testing procedures augment your understanding of this important skill area.

  • Coverage of techniques such as gravity-resisted testing and gravity-eliminated testing clearly shows you how to perform alternative methods of manual muscle testing.
  • Hundreds of photos and illustrations demonstrate various techniques and landmarks to give you a clear understanding of positioning, stabilization, and common substitutions.
  • Clinical notes highlight useful information about particular symptoms or conditions that you may encounter in practice.
  • Case vignettes challenge you to apply your knowledge to real-world situations and think creatively about clinical problems.
  • Overview of normal gait cycle serves as a resource for identifying gait deviations and associated muscle weaknesses.
