Overview

Logically organized with comprehensive coverage, this newly revised third edition prepares you to choose the right orthopedic tests, accurately assess any patient, and arrive at a clear diagnosis. Trusted for both its depth of coverage and its accessible, accurate information, it features gamuts, clinical pearls, and cross-reference tables for quick and easy reference. Now in brilliant full color, with all new photos of every test, it’s even more visually appealing, and illustrates common conditions and procedural tests more effectively than ever before. This edition offers a fresh look at testing for orthopedic conditions, with detailed text that explains the key moves of each test, its alternate names, and the appropriate reporting statement. Extensive cross-referencing ensures that you can easily find the right test for efficient and effective practice, and protocol charts guide you through the examination process step by step.
  • Chapters are logically organized by region, and tests within each chapter are arranged alphabetically, so you can find the information you need in seconds!
  • Each test begins with a brief discussion of basic anatomy, then moves into a description of the actual procedure and ends with next-step directives.
  • Critical Thinking questions at the end of each chapter help you apply what you’ve learned to clinical practice.
  • Orthopedic Gamuts provide summaries of key points in a concise list - numerous gamuts within each chapter help you master material quickly and easily.
  • Clinical Pearls share the author’s knowledge gained through years of clinical experience, helping you avoid common misdiagnoses.
  • Cross-reference tables offer at-a-glance guidance on which tests should be used to diagnose particular diseases, for maximum accuracy and efficiency in practice.
  • Each chapter begins with an index of tests for easy reference, and axioms that remind you of elemental information, such as how painful certain maneuvers may be or the extent of some body parts’ range.
  • Contains a chapter on malingering (non-organically-based complaints), helping you investigate and determine the root cause of complaint, whether due to injury, for psychological reasons, or an attempt to feign injury for various purposes, such as for improper receipt of worker’s compensation.
  • Companion DVD contains video footage of Dr. Evans performing and explaining each assessment test in the book.
  • Full-color photographs demonstrate how to perform 237 orthopedic tests!
  • At the Viewbox feature contains high-quality radiographs that depict various pathologies, as well as musculature and other anatomy that can’t be shown photographically.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This third edition of a standard in the field provides a comprehensive overview of the diagnostic procedures necessary to properly assess the neuromusculoskeletal system using a regional approach. An accompanying DVD demonstrates a wide range of procedures discussed in the book.
Purpose: It is designed to provide clinicians at all levels of training and experience information on current methods for assessment of the neuromusculoskeletal system. This is sorely needed, given the emphasis on evidence-based practice. This new edition is an enhancement of an already effective book.
Audience: This will be used by both those in training and those in practice. As a teaching manual, there is no better. As a reference for a practicing clinician, it is the most comprehensive compendium of information I am aware of. The author is a leading clinician in the chiropractic profession, long recognized for his expertise in orthopedic physical diagnostic procedures.
Features: Two chapters dedicated to basic assessment principles and procedures begin the book before moving into a regional approach to diagnosis. The organization for each chapter follows a pattern: axioms, followed by an introduction, orthopedic gamuts, motion palpation, then imaging and orthopedic tests. Each section has ample illustrations to support the text, and the DVD demonstrates how to perform many of the procedures. The book is printed on glossy paper with color illustrations.
Assessment: This is an essential purchase. I find it easy to use, comprehensive, thorough, and well organized. It has a depth of coverage few books can match. This edition enhances the past versions, and will fit in well in an evidence-based world. While authored by a chiropractic physician, I see it being useful in all healthcare fields. I highly recommend it.
