Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Although based on a previous publication by the AAOS, Joint Motion: Method of Measuring and Recording (1965), this new edition with a new title has been completely revised, updated, and refined.
Purpose: Because the measuring of joint motion is an important factor in making clinical decisions, the authors present appropriate techniques that are practical, accurate, and reproducible. This in turn would allow a more consistent, efficient, objective assessment of joint motion and better patient care.
Audience: The book is written for physicians and therapists and is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of training who are assessing and/or treating musculoskeletal problems. Drs. Greene and Heckman are well respected and honest and do a commendable job of editing this text produced by the AAOS, the preeminent organization for the musculoskeletal system.
Features: It has been said that "a picture is worth a thousand words." Certainly in trying to describe anatomical motions this could not be more true. Fortunately the editors have packed this book full of illustrations that guide the reader to be able to accurately reproduce the clinical measurements of joint motion.
Assessment: All clinicians that evaluate the musculoskeletal system should consistently document the range of clinical joint motion to better care for and assess the progress of their patients. This text provides an easy to follow, systematic approach that can be used to create consistency, accuracy, and reproducibility of the physical exam. This text would be a worthy addition to the institutional and personal library and would also be a great addition on site in the office or clinic.
