Click an image to enlarge

Completely revised and updated, Musculoskeletal Assessment, Third Edition offers a student-friendly approach to muscle assessment, presenting the principles and methodology of assessing both joint range of motion (ROM)/goniometry and manual muscle strength for the head, neck, trunk, and extremities.

Each chapter is devoted to a separate anatomical region and provides knowledge of pertinent surface anatomy and deep anatomy. Excellent photography and illustrations enhance comprehension of techniques and serve as a self-learning tool.

Third Edition features:

  • Hands-on Assessment Forms serve as additional practice for students in class or at home. A special feature/icon in the text refers students to these forms online.
  • Normal AROM values are shown in red font in the text for quick reference.
  • Separation of the book into sections better organizes the material.
  • Covers both muscle testing and goniometry, allowing instructors to cover both topics without requiring a second book.
  • Clear step-by-step instructions for Muscle Testing making it easy for students to follow.
  • Provides clinical tie-ins to the material where possible, allowing students to apply the material they are learning to clinical situations.
  • More than 800 lavish photos clearly demonstrate patient and therapist positions and instrument placement.
  • Surface anatomy and a detailed visual presentation of deep anatomical structures are provided.
  • Functional applications of evaluation findings are related to self-care, work, and leisure activities.
  • The specific function of the joint complex, ROM, and muscle work required for functional activities are documented to establish the patient’s present functional status and to set appropriate treatment goals.
  • Includes chapter relating assessment methods to selected treatment techniques.
