Editorial Reviews

Review

"The illustrations, diagrams, and tables of the musculoskeletal exam are the highlights of this quick reference. The step-by-step exam explanations are perfect for trainees, providing medical students, residents, therapists, and some practitioners with a great resource. It also serves well as a teaching reference for trainees and primary care providers." - Susan Hillary Nack, DO (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago),-- Doody Reviews (Doody Reviews 2010-05-03)

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book! It's small, handy and has tons of pictures to easily highlight what and how to examine. Also, has very useful, detailed drawings of each nerve that are clinically relevant. I'm in Family Practice and some parts of this book are beyond me (EMG, detailed muscle innervation/needle placement info, cord injury info), but 80% of the book is what I was taught in medical school and can't remember for those 5 patients a month that need a thorough exam. I also like how well and concisely it's organized.

This book was a gift for a friend who is an RN in a regional hospital in Arizona. Here are her comments:

"Our ER out here in cowboy country sees lots of seasonal rodeo injuries. This little book is a good, quick reference for our permanent staff, as well as medical students and residents rotating through. I especially like chapter 6, Spinal Chord Injury Exam, and the references and resources at the back. Thanks!"

This book is older, but I like the time-saving approach, it's not too simplistic and it is a pocket.
Yes there is no perfect book and you have to see what you like.

SUMMARY OF WHAT ELSE AVAIL

Do avoid the following ~$80 paperback with only 132 pages and not so good reviews:
Pocket Guide to Musculoskeletal Diagnosis (Musculoskeletal Medicine) (2009).
And the following contains errors:
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Pocketpedia Paperback by Matthew Shatzer DO (Author)

Mbe check out:
Quick Clinical Reference Physical Assessment Manual, Spiral by Nikita A. Vizniak (2010)
Quick Reference Evidence-Based Conditions Manual 3rd edition, Spiral by Nikita Vizniak (2010)

BUT, it'll mean a trip to the bookstore to see inside. Or go here..
prohealthsys dot com slash zencentral slash index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=6
Also has some online orthopedic assessment rules
prohealthsys dot com slash site slash resources slash assessment slash clinical-prediction-rules-diagnosis slash
(mostly for chiros, PTs, physiatry (PM&R) students)

Mbe also chekc
Lippincott's Primary Care Orthopaedics, Hardcover by Paul A. Lotke MD (Author) (2013) - more comprehensive than a pocket
and I like the "Not to be Missed" sections for each condition
Neurological Examination Made Easy, 5e Paperback by Geraint Fuller MD FRCP (2013) is good
And if you are really into neuro and want videos - this one offers 110 for way under $30
Neurological Clinical Examination Paperback by John Morris (Author) (2012)

I ordered this book to use on a PM&R rotation in my 4th yr of med school and it was very helpful! The book has short descriptions and picture guides to all the musculoskeletal tests for each joint and/or muscle group.

The only thing I should was lacking was the innervation and nerve roots listed along with the tests. Sometimes there where listed, but not always. I suppose you can find it else where in the book.

Overall, nice pocket-sized book full of information to help out with any MSK or Neuro exam.
