Athletic and Orthopedic Injury Assessment: Case Responses and Interpretationsis a companion book that provides responses and interpretations to the case studies in Athletic and Orthopedic Injury Assessment: A Case Study Approach. Research, evidence-based practices, and professional experience form the basis of these responses and interpretations. The suggested answers for case questions include information such as identification of differential and clinical diagnoses, explanations of diagnostic tests, relevant anatomical information, and more. We hope you find this book helpful in responding to the case questions, whether you are an instructor leading class discussions and analyzing student work, a preprofessional preparing to interpret the case scenarios on the BOC national certification examination, or a student seeking to compare the suggested answers with your own analyses.
The bulk of the book builds on the fundamentals through case studies that address specific musculoskeletal problems. The case studies are categorized into five main sections according to the symptoms and signs presented by patients. An emphasis is placed on helping physicians overcome the barriers and frustrations that often accompany the complexity of treating MS problems.
