Item description for Atlas of the Musculoskeletal Examination by Gerald F....

One of every seven Americans reports some form of musculoskeletal complaint that limits activity or productivity. Musculoskeletal problems are the leading cause of illness at work and the origin of most temporary and permanent disabilities. Not surprisingly, then, a significant proportion of diagnosis and treatment is rendered by primary care physicians and other nonspecialist healthcare providers. Atlas of the Musculoskeletal Examination provides physicians with the most appropriate tests, concisely explaining what to look for and when to treat. General principles are initially discussed. Subsequent chapters focus on particular body areas: the upper extremities (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand/fingers), gait and spine, and the lower extremities (hip, knee, ankle, foot/toes). Each description is accompanied by an illustration of the test or condition under discussion. Range of motion is demonstrated for all joints. Examples of specific disease processes are provided, especially when testing procedures are of value. Soft tissue diseases receive special emphasis. The first volume in the new ACP Clinical Skills series, Atlas of the Musculoskeletal Examination, is an essential volume for the practicing physician.

Reviews - What do customers think about Atlas of the Musculoskeletal Examination?

An invaluable resource  Aug 29, 2007
Most physical examination textbooks tell you HOW to perform the musculoskeletal exam, but seem to lack the ability to fully communicate what the findings mean. This little handbook is a treasure trove of information. It is easily read, and the algorithms are enormously helpful in pinpointing the problem. I found this to be an invaluable resource.
