Great book

“This book is a great guide to goniometry. I especially love the Appendix that has all the normal values. It's a must have for anyone starting out in physical therapy.”

Measurements made easy

“This book is helpful because there are actual photographs that'show you how to measure various ROM's. No confusing drawings. just pictures. So helpful. They also do a great job of summarizing the most important tips for each joint (i.e. normal ROM's, where to place the goni, etc.)”

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.
