Updated and expanded, the 3rd edition of this classic resource provides a systematic approach to orthopedic assessment and the rationale behind each procedure. Assessment guidelines detail each step of an evaluation, including history-taking, observation, physical examination, differential diagnosis, and more. Features clinical case studies, as well as MRI and CT images to illustrate various conditions. This edition includes numerous new and revised photographs and line drawings, increased information on functional testing and assessment, new tables on differential diagnosis in each chapter, and current references. A new chapter on preparticipation evaluation examines whether or not an individual can participate in a particular activity.
