Book Description

February 1989 068301711X 978-0683017113
Completely revised and updated, this edition presents the principles and methodology of assessing both joint range of motion (ROM)/goniometry and manual muscle strength for the head, neck, trunk, and extremities. Each chapter is devoted to a separate anatomical region and provides knowledge of pertinent surface anatomy and deep anatomy. Excellent photography and illustrations enhance comprehension of techniques and serve as a self-learning tool. New to this edition: New vertical format; second-color added to line art; 200 new photographs; detailed coverage of ROM and muscle length assessment and measurement for each body region; comprehensive coverage of end feels for each joint motion; and chapter relating assessment methods to treatment techniques and activities of daily living. A useful resource for assessment and treatment!

1.0 out of 5 stars Somebody PLEASE write a better manual muscle testing book! September 23, 2005
By Beth B.
I am an occupational therapy student currently taking Functional Anatomy. This is the assigned book for the course. It is EXTREMELY difficult to follow. It has ridiculously few pictures. There must be a better book out there for manual muscle testing. Our whole class (50 OTs and PTs) have complained about this book.

This was purchased right before school started so I was nervous I wouldn't have it in time, but it came right before summer semester started. I was exactly what I was expecting for the price and condition described online.

Good textbook for the OT program. I like the spiral bound because it's easier to leave the book open while you're doing assessments.

I received all my books I ordered and they were on time. Not to mention that they were a whole lot cheaper than at the school book store!
