Orthopedic Clinical Examination

Human Kinetics
2

Orthopedic Clinical Examination (Enhanced Version) provides current and future athletic trainers and physical therapists fundamental knowledge for developing proficiency at performing orthopedic evaluations and diagnosing conditions. Michael P. Reiman, who is internationally respected for his teaching, clinical practice, and research focused on orthopedic assessment and treatment methods, presents an evidence-based guide on the process of conducting tests and making diagnoses.

 

This enhanced e-book takes a structured approach, moving from broad to focused, that guides clinicians in making proper diagnoses. With this setup, the dynamic text and video combination presents specific components of the examination in the same sequence, ensuring repetition and improved consistency in learning. Screenings are used early in the examination sequence not only to determine the appropriateness of performing an orthopedic examination but also to rule out other potential pain generators and thereby narrow the focus of the examination.

 

Orthopedic Clinical Examination emphasizes evidence-based practice and therefore focuses on tests that are clinically relevant, providing students and clinicians with the most appropriate testing options rather than listing tests with no regard for their clinical value. Both treatment-based and pathological-based diagnostic styles are covered in detail so that readers will gain a thorough understanding of both approaches and be able to implement them separately or in tandem. In addition to body part examination, the text provides information on including subjective history, observation, diagnostic imaging, systems and neurological screening, and performance-based measures in making a complete diagnosis.

 

Orthopedic Clinical Examination includes learning tools that enhance comprehension and engagement:

 

-       Full-color photographs and illustrations demonstrate anatomy, patient conditions, and clinician positioning to serve as a visual reference and ensure proper testing techniques.

-       Fifty integrated videos provide students with visual demonstrations of assessments and treatments.

-       Color-coding graphics throughout chapters help readers quickly discern whether evidence supporting the reported finding is ideal, good, or less than good.

-       Overviews of common orthopedic conditions for each body region are in the 12 applied chapters.

-       Twenty-four case studies guide users in the proper questions to ask and steps to take in evaluation and diagnosis.

-       Links to abstracts of articles provide additional clinical learning scenarios.

 

With Orthopedic Clinical Examination, current and future clinicians will gain the knowledge and confidence they need in performing examinations and making diagnoses in clinical settings.
