Product information Examination of the Shoulder
The complex structure of the shoulder, with its variable pathological conditions of rotator cuff disease, degenerative joint disease, and Type II SLAP lesions, makes clinical examination and assessment difficult. With this text you will gain a full understanding of shoulder anatomy, the principles of physical shoulder examination, and the processes causing shoulder pain. This text discusses range of motion measurements, laxity testing, shoulder instability and presents critical analysis of the usefulness and accuracy of examination practices. An accompanying DVD contains narrated footage of the examination techniques described in the text for easy comprehension and review. You will also find examples of abnormal findings and biomechanical models demonstrating the complexity of shoulder motion. No orthopaedic surgeon, orthopaedic resident, physical therapist or athletic trainer should be without this outstanding text and DVD. Foreword by Frank W. Jobe (UCLA).
