Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary D. Groves, BS (Kaiser Permanente)
Description: This manual is an easy to follow guide for the evaluation of range of motion and muscle strength. This spiral bound book contains three chapters covering goniometry, gross manual muscle testing, and isolated manual muscle testing and appendixes for muscle tables, range of motion tables, and sample evaluation forms.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the student with formal instruction techniques as well as to prepare the student for a clinical setting. The contents and structure are user friendly.
Audience: According to the author, this book was written for the student preparing to enter into a clinical setting.
Features: This book offers functional examples of muscle movements to be observed by the student to relate in a clinical setting. The book designates icons that are used throughout the book, which guide the student through specific areas for caution and ASHT guidelines. However, some of the photos are difficult to decipher because of the graininess of the reproduction.
Assessment: This is a useful book for the novice student as well as a quick review for the practicing therapist.
From the Publisher
Teaching occupational therapy students to evaluate clients using manual muscle testing and goniometry, this manual emphasizes the need to combine procedural knowledge of functional observation and gross and isolated muscle testing with flexibility and higher clinical reasoning. Some 350 black and white photos detail manual muscle testing step by step. The authors teach occupational therapy at Quinnipiac University. - Book News Inc.
