Orthopedic Clinical Examination 1st Edition PDF Free Download
The clinician should be well versed in the funnel approach prior to this though. Due to the complexity of the various types of clients with orthopedic-related pathological presentations, clinicians must examine these clients in a systematic manner. However, with both treatment-based classifications and pathological-based classifications being used in health care fields, the clinician and student are often left wondering which approach to examination is ideal. Additionally, each approach has notable limitations (e.g., not all rotator cuff tears have the same impairments, not all lumbar spines with degenerative disc disease have pain, not all clients appropriately fit a treatment-based classification). The author of this book believes that practicing clinicians should have a good understanding of both approaches because each approach is used by different health care providers. Thus, this book attempts to bridge the gap between treatment-based classifications and pathological-based classifications with the funnel approach to examination. It also presents material at the end of each chapter so that the reader can see common impairments (treatment-based diagnosis) for common pathologies (pathologybased diagnosis).
