Summary

Fundamentals of the Physical Therapy Examination: Patient Interview and Tests and Measures introduces Physical Therapy students to essential screening and examination techniques, which form the foundation of their practice, and will help develop clinical decision-making skills. Experienced clinicians make numerous and rapid decisions about what questions to ask during a subjective history, what systems need to be screened for problems that lie outside the scope of physical therapy, and what tests and measures must be performed during an initial patient examination. Physical therapy students and some new graduates often struggle with this decision-making process and answering the "why" questions. This text provides the reader with a fundamental, step-by-step approach to the subjective and objective portions of the examination process for the most common types of patients within the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary, and cardiopulmonary realms (according to the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice). Ample rationale is provided for why a test/measure would or would not be selected based on the patient#146;s diagnosis or presentation. In addition to rationale to help with the clinical decision-making process, a case example and sample documentation will also be provided for each test/measure provided.
