Overview

Manual muscle testing is a cornerstone activity in physical and occupational therapy. Designed to complement, not supplement two existing tomes in the literature, this book presents information that is contained, but not readily accessible in the other two books. Each muscle or muscle group is presented on a two page spread. Each spread is chock full of information, containing a picture of the muscle test, step-by-step instructions for performing the test, the muscle's origin and insertion points, etc.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Aaron M. McBride, MPT, ATC (HealthSouth Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center)
Description: This book is a unique blend of background information in physical therapy (such as principles of differential diagnosis) and various case studies through which students and clinicians can challenge themselves.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide students with various experiences that will bridge the gap between academia and the "real world." The editor also offers students and clinicians alike a chance to self-test. The case studies present some complicated and unusual cases, which are somewhat difficult and involved to say the least.
Audience: This book is written for a wide variety of education levels within the field of physical therapy. Undergraduate students and master clinicians will all find pedagogic value in the text. The various cases encompass all aspects of physical therapy from orthopedics to cardiovascular to neurology, and everything in between.
Features: Initially, differential diagnosis is described, and although there is not much depth to the level of diagnosis or involvement, particular involvement is illustrated. However, not much background is provided on pathology. On the other hand, the case studies offer a quite interesting and thought provoking aspect to the text. The answer sections for the case studies are also quite informative, for both beginners and masters alike.
Assessment: This book is a worthy addition to the field, and although the differential diagnosis section is somewhat thin, it is acceptable for undergraduate students. The case studies are excellent and provide an intense and interesting test for even well established clinicians.
