This quick, on-the-spot reference is an essential guide to the physical assessment procedures used to diagnose specific orthopedic syndromes and pathologies. It parallels the comprehensive information inside Evans' ILLUSTRATED ORTHOPEDIC PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT, 2ND EDITION, outlining each test, the syndrome it identifies, a description of the testing procedure, a Clinical Pearl, and photographs of the procedure as it should be performed. In addition, 261 Orthopedic Gamuts offer relevant, concise clinical points related to essential anatomy, motion assessment, muscle function, imaging elements, universal orthopedic precepts, and principles dealing with a specific body region. The easy-to-use, standardized format, plus a body region organization and extensive cross-referencing, give practitioners instant access to orthopedic assessment essentials in any setting.
