Examination Techniques in Orthopaedics comprehensively covers the basic examination skills and important special tests needed to evaluate the adult and paediatric musculoskeletal system. Chapters are presented in an easy-to-read, memorable format, helping readers develop their own detailed framework for patient examination as well as promoting exam success. For this new edition, all of the chapters have been rewritten in a uniform style and a chapter on general principles has been added. Each chapter is illustrated by clinical photographs and photographs demonstrating the techniques on models, and includes a summary of techniques, which readers will find useful in exam preparation. The contributing authors are experienced in teaching clinical examination both in the hospital setting and on national courses, and furthermore, many are examiners with firsthand awareness of what candidates need to know. Invaluable reading for those taking undergraduate and postgraduate examinations, practising orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, general practitioners, medical students and rheumatologists.
