Despite growing reliance on imaging, clinical examination remains the bedrock of diagnosis of the musculoskeletal patient. Special tests have widespread utility particularly in sport and can often help to elucidate a patient's presentation where the lesion is subtle and otherwise difficult to detect and, in turn, guide management and treatment. Special Tests in Musculoskeletal Examination 2nd Edition is a pocketbook guide to over 100 peripheral tests.

Key Features

It includes:

  • a fully illustrated step-by-step guide to each test giving clinicians all the information they need at their fingertips.
  • a focussed review of the latest evidence and how this applies to practice.
  • use of clinical tips and expert opinion to allow clinicians to select the most appropriate test and interpret the results meaningfully.
