The Clinical Orthopedic Assessment Guide is a handy, thorough reference for orthopedic clinicians who use manual therapy techniques in patient assessment. Information is presented in a concise, efficient format with more than 175 illustrations to facilitate understanding.The book is divided into five parts and organized to make the same categories of information pertaining to each joint both self-contained and easy to find. After explaining basic arthrokinematic and osteokinematic principles and defining terminology, the authors provide in-depth coverage of the head, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), vertebral column and neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, pelvis and hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Sections on each joint include information on--type of joint;-articulation, degrees of freedom, and active ranges of motion;-capsular pattern, stability, loose and close-packed positions, and neurology around the joint;-accessory movement assessment, surface palpatation, special tests, and differential diagnoses; and-muscle origin, insertion, action, and innervation.The Clinical Orthopedic Assessment Guide is the only comprehensive, easy-to-use reference that includes all the vital information needed to perform orthopedic assessments. It is an essential tool for all practitioners who use manual techniques for orthopedic assessments.
