E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
Clinical orthopedic examination is a skill that improves with knowledge and practice. This book provides readers with the knowledge and skills needed to approach the examination process. Each chapter on examination of a specific body part is organized and presented in the same manner. Approaching the examination from a broad to a focused approach (so-called funnel approach) and performing specific components of the examination in the same sequence ensures repetition and improved consistency in learning. This book, therefore, is written for the physical therapy, athletic training, and medical student, as well as for any clinician who wants a systematic approach to examination of the orthopedic client. The clinician is encouraged, though, to also use positioning systematically when performing their examination to avoid having the client move excessively, especially if the client is highly irritable symptom wise. Once the clinician has appropriately screened their client for serious pathology, they can use positioning appropriately to assess range-of-motion and muscle performance, for example, in the same position assuming it will not bias the rest of the examination process.

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).
