The lack of an appropriate text on goniometry has forced instructors to expend a great deal of effort not only in preparing their own teaching material but also in demonstrating testing positions, stabilization techniques, and goniometer alignments.

    The 'bible 'of measuring joint motion.

    Anybody that needs to measure the motion of the joints in the body will want to read this book. I call it 'The Bible' when it comes to the standardization of measuring joint motion. In an age of evidence-based medicine and the need to objectively document improvement, this book is most welcome.
