ISBN-13: 978-0-8036-0891-7 / ISBN-10: 0-8036-0891-8. Package of Starkey and Ryan's Evaluation of Orthopedic and Athletic Injuries, 2nd edition with Holcomb's Practical Skills Manual for Evaluation of Athletic Injuries. $81.95. "This is by far the most comprehensive and user-friendly text for both professor and student! I am continuing to use it in my Athletic Training Program, and beginning next year, I will institute it into my PT courses in Ortho I & II." -- Vincent J. Hudson, MS, PT, ATC, MBA, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL The combination of illustrations and precise language in this tightly structured 2nd edition make even the most complicated concepts and techniques clear. Organized by body region, each chapter starts with an review of anatomy and biomechanics, description of the clinical evaluation of injuries, discussion of pathologies and related special tests, and ends with a discussion of on-field or initial management of specific injuries. "I really liked the first text and this one is significantly improved. For example, the clinical findings boxes." -- Tom West, PhD, ATC, AT, Lock Haven University, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania "Much improvement in this edition. Separating c-spine into its own chapter really works well for my classes. Additional illustrations and evaluation maps make this a student friendly book. Dr. Starkey and Mr. Ryan have really created a book that serves the athletic training student." -- Micki Cuppett, EdD, ATC, University of Nebraska at Omaha "Much better layout of information! Text/charts/graphics are all in the same general area -- much improved over 1st edition." -- Paul Higgs, MEd, ATC, LAT, Georgia College and State University, Milledgeville, Georgia ISBN-13: 978-0-8036-1129-0 / ISBN-10: 0-8036-1129-3.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Hughes, PT, PhD, OCS, CSCS (Slippery Rock University)
Description: This reference for athletic trainers covers the necessary basic evaluation techniques to examine the injured athlete both on and off the field. The previous edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The authors' purpose for the second edition was two-fold: to update the first edition with the most current and comprehensive information in sports medicine and to present the information in a user-friendly manner. These are worthy objectives and the authors appear to have met both in an successful manner.
Audience: This book is written primarily for the athletic training student and practicing athletic trainer. The examples and focus of the text from a topical standpoint are specific to issues dealing with athletic training (i.e., eye injuries, environmmental injuries, etc.) and on-field evaluation of specific injuries. However, much of the material would also be pertinent for the physical therapist treating athletic injuries in the outpatient setting. The author has written several other athletic training books and is academic program director in athletic training at a major university.
Features: A total of 21chapters cover a number of key areas for the athletic trainer. The first three chapters educate the reader on the injury evaluation process and nomenclature common to injuries as well as postural assessment methods. Regional coverage of major areas of the body are then covered over the next 15 chapters. Thereafter, the focus is on specific topics in the areas of environmental injury, cardiopulmonary conditions, and general medical conditions (cancer, viral syndromes, skin conditions, and endocrine disorders). For each region of the body the authors consistently organize the chapter material based on clinical anatomy, clinical evaluation, pathologies and special tests, on field evaluation techniques, and initial management of injury. Unique features of the book include a comprehensive glossary, three appendixes covering reflex testing, assessment of muscle length and functional testing of the lower extremity. In addition numerous highlight boxes discuss evaluative findings that accompany select injuries such as patellar tendon rupture, facet joint dysfunction, and glenohumeral instability.
Assessment: The book is very well done. I would rate it as one of the best books on sports medicine and athletic training evaluation. I highly recommend it to the athletic training student and practicing athletic trainer.
Arthur E. Squires
This new guide to joint mechanics and pathomechanics addresses field and clinical assessments of injuries. The purpose of this work is to provide a guide in assessing athletic injuries. The objective is especially worthy in a work of less than 600 pages, which was the goal met by the authors. Although targeted for student athletic trainers, this book provides a valuable tool for the practicing clinician who treats even a modest number of athletes. It is in this latter category that the book serves the physical therapist. These authors and their contributors are well known and respected as athletic trainers and/or therapists. Their command of this subject matter only validates their reputation. This work is amply endowed with numerous photographs, drawings, and tables that clarify the narrative. References are from respected sources, although some of the publication dates exceed 20 years. The book has an adequate glossary with a thorough index. One of the book's strongest elements is the author's use of tables, charts, drawings, and photographs to capsulize the book's text. This work is very useful for a physical therapist who sees even a few athletes. It augments the rehabilitative training that physical therapists receive. This is especially important (1) in a direct access state where the therapist may be the client's first source of treatment or (2) where a primary care gatekeeper may be the referring source. Such a physician might depend on the specific skills of a therapist to finally sort out a differential diagnosis. This work has a few of the expected first edition errata both in spelling and in content. However, these do not diminish the overall value of the work.
After chapters on the injury evaluation process and injury nomenclature, coverage begins with the foot and toes and progresses up the body, ending with the head, neck, and face; concluding chapters cover environmental injury and cardiopulmonary conditions. Each chapter begins with a review of the relevant anatomy, and each incorporates both clinical evaluation and on-field management. The format is based on a standardized evaluation model with modular components for history-taking, inspection, palpation, functional testing, ligamentous and capsular testing, neurological tests, and special tests for specific pathology.

From The Critics
Organized by body region, this text uses a visual format to present clinically applicable techniques for evaluating injuries experienced by athletes. Each chapter reviews anatomy and biomechanics, then presents appropriate evaluation procedures, and ends with emergency or initial management of specific injuries. Explanations use a combination of b&w photos, illustrations, medical images, and detailed instructions. Resisted range of motion and manual muscle tests, clinical tests, and special tests are presented in boxes, new to this edition. Also new are two chapters on the assessment of posture and general medical conditions. Starkey is athletic training program director and associate professor at Northeastern University; Ryan is clinical director of the Hahnemann Sports Medicine Center at Hahnemann University Hospital.
