Book Description

This pocket-sized book is invaluable assistance to the busy orthopaedic medical practitioner, osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor in the difficult process of diagnosing musculoskeletal injuries or disorders. The companion is designed to help in making the diagnosis by drawing together into one place information from a wide range of medical, orthopaedic and anatomical textbooks. The companion is equally useful as an aide-memoir in the busy clinic or, as a learning tool to identify areas for detailed study in the practitioner's individual programme of continued professional development. Hands On: a Clinical Companion is divided into three sections. The first covers the initial case history, red flag issues and physical assessment or evaluation of the patient. Each chapter in the second section focuses upon an individual joint, functional unit or area, giving an outline of the anatomy; the pathological conditions, with the commonest ones tabled for easy differential diagnosis; the expected normal active and passive ranges of joint movement; and a selection of common orthopaedic tests. The final section is an overview of symptoms with which a patient may present that could originate from neurological, rheumatological or systemic disease processes.
