This book is the first to truly demonstrate benefit, by using a test and measure for screening or for diagnostic confirmation, which shows appropriate diagnostic accuracy, is free from bias, and should be reproducible and effective for the condition and clinical environment at hand. Since for some orthopedic clinicians, the statistical terminology may be unfamiliar, chapter one is essentially a userrs"s guide for the book. Additional chapters include:Neurological and Structural Differentiation Testing ,Special Clinical Tests of the Hip, and Special Clinical Tests of the Lower Leg, Ankle and Foot.For ease of access, the tests are listed in each chapter according to pathoanatomical classification and ordered in a descending fashion, from best to worst, based on their "Utility Score".Orthopedic clinicians
