The third edition of Examination of Musculoskeletal Injuriesassists both current and future rehabilitation professionals in recognizing musculoskeletal injuries, performing musculoskeletal examinations of athletic injuries, and evaluating if and when to refer clients to a physician's care. The text will help students master the skills required for completing the Board of Certification examination for athletic trainers by thoroughly covering all the content in this area of specialization set forth in the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) Athletic Training Educational Competencies.Completely updated and expanded, the third edition of Examination of Musculoskeletal Injuries incorporates an increased emphasis on clinical decision making, problem solving, and integration of skill application. Revised chapter-opening scenarios present open-ended real-life situations that initiate discussion of the complexity of athletic injury examination. Review and critical thinking questions have been updated to assist readers in developing their clinical decision-making and problem-solving skills. Laboratory activities have been added to aid students with hands-on practical application of the material. Data tables that report the sensitivity and specificity of special tests strengthen the evidence-based selection of those tests as they are used in the examination procedure. Also, revised information in the functional anatomy and injury recognition sections form a more cohesive connection with the musculoskeletal examination process.Examination of Musculoskeletal Injuriesbegins with comprehensive coverage of foundational assessment tools, which prepare readers to understand and apply the joint-specific evaluation techniques that follow. Next, recognition and examination of injuries and conditions specific to each body region are addressed. Real-life scenarios precede the discussion of each examination strategy. The final section of the text addresses general medical conditions normally found in active persons. Because examinations of these conditions usually are the physician's responsibility and require the use of diagnostic tests for identification, the text prepares readers to make appropriate referrals based on patients' histories, signs and symptoms, and their own observations.
