Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gordon Riddle, PT, DPT, ATC, CSCS (North Hills Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy)
Description: The book covers the basic information necessary for orthopedic examination, evaluation, and intervention and offers helpful decision making algorithms for each joint as well as figures, charts, and tables to help promote the understanding of concepts. It also serves as a good supplement to Dutton's comprehensive Orthopaedic Examination, Evaluation, and Intervention (McGraw-Hill, 2004).
Purpose: It is intended as a ready reference guide for the student or novice outpatient orthopedic physical therapist. This is beneficial and helpful, providing an environment to learn and reflect independently.
Audience: The book is written by a credible clinician and educator in orthopedic physical therapy.
Features: This reference aids in the differential diagnosis of various orthopedic pathologies and how to initiate interventions regarding these diagnoses. The strong points are the book's figures, tables, charts, and algorithms which facilitate the decision making process. The appendix on terminology is helpful for understanding medical terminology, surgical procedures, and fracture types related to specific areas of the body. However, the descriptions of orthopedic special tests are sometimes confusing and lengthy.
Assessment: This is a good guide for those not familiar or comfortable with orthopedic diagnoses. The descriptions of the special tests lack critical information and are sometimes confusing and lengthy, making it difficult to use in a timely manner as a ready reference guide. Diagrams and simplified explanations of special tests would be helpful. The book offers a good foundation for clinical and functional anatomy, physiology, neurology, and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system required to complete an orthopedic examination, evaluation, and intervention.
