Musculoskeletal Examination

by Vivek Pandey, Hitesh Shah

In this era of unparalleled bio-technological developments where a clinician and even an orthopedic trainee are forgetting the art and science of a sound clinical examination, this book “Musculoskeletal Examination” emphasized on the fundamentals of clinical diagnosis. With 15 chapters, starting from the basics of orthopedic examination, the book advances to cover joint examinations in detail, covering some aspects of anatomy and function, followed by history taking and examination. The key element of note is the numerous pictures that illustrate the text, which go on to enhance the understanding of these problems in the minds of these young students struggling for comprehension of complex orthopedic situations. The structure and format of all the chapters is similar for easier understanding. An added feature is that each chapter has a proforma, which emphasizes key points, which are helpful to remember for medical examination. Each chapter then ends with some basic information about common diseases affecting the joint, allowing some sort of overview of the situation, albeit for the student levels.
