Product description

"Netter's Orthopaedic Clinical Examination: An Evidence-Based Approach", by Joshua Cleland and Shane Koppenhaver, helps you apply best practices to get the most clinically significant information from each physical examination. Classic Netter artwork and anatomy/biomechanics tables provide a handy anatomy and pathophysiology overview, while an evidence-based approach helps you focus on the examination techniques, tests, and measures that have been proven to yield the most meaningful diagnostic findings.

If you are inspired to learn the most sensitive and most evidence-based orthopedic joint exam, this book is made for you. Each joint is covered from this book (including the temporomandibular joint, that is how extensive this book is). This book covers live clinical pictures and combines it with pictures from Netter's Atlas.

Each chapter covers a different joint and explains a whole variety of tests that one may see done by clinicians and orthopedic surgeons. Each test is also assessed, by statistical significance, as how appropriate they are for use in everyday clinical practice.

The anatomy covered this book is essential for medical students, however, the tests covered are above the levels of undergraduate medicine. I would therefore, recommend this book for those that are really keen to learn orthopedics or anatomy, those that want to go into orthopedics as a career choice, and for those doing projects or modules in orthopedics or anatomy specifically.

Although this book is pitched at a postgraduate level, it is worth referring to or having a read if you find yourself debating with others about how significant a 'special' joint test is.

This review is written by an Elsevier Student Rep.

Review quote

"The only text available that combines clear yet concise descriptions of orthopedic test performance and scoring with data on the psychometric properties of these tests and measures.This book is well written and well organized and the tables, figures, and photographs greatly enhance the text and make the information quickly accessible to the reader.The most logical choice for a required text for a musculoskeletal evaluation course. It also will undoubtedly serve as a much-used, clinically useful reference text for every student, educator, and clinician involved in musculoskeletal care." - Physical Therapy, review of the first edition
