Format: Hardcover
There is only one Hoppenfeld. For what it is, it's the best. It's all diagnosis. Not a word on treatment. But it gives a good review of not just the physical exam but also the underlying anatomy and biomechanics. Two other books are worth getting. Magee's Orthopedic Physical Assessment is a good background book to have on your shelf. It's written by a physical therapist, so the perspective is a little different if you're an MD or DO, but it's still useful. Lots of physical exam maneuvers. Cooper's Pocket Guide to Musculoskeletal Diagnosis is short and sweet and gives diagnostic work up as well as treatment insights.

I am the Head Athletic Trainer, as well as a professor for a college in Oklahoma. I have used this text from Hoppenfeld for many years and find it to be one of the most important and useful books on the market for assessing athletic injuries. Hoppenfeld completed this book in 1976, it is so complete and accurate that it is still an original edition. The only word of caution about this book is to break it in slowly. I have gone through two copies because of the extremely tight binding of the book. Take your time and work the pages in slowly and I guarantee you will be as pleased with this book as I am.

Easy to read. A little too heavy on the biomechanics for my taste. I would have liked better pics. But good overall.

This is a good book. I liked it but there is a lot of extraneous material that I couldn't use. I prefer Pocket Guide to Musculoskeletal Diagnosis for physical exam info. But this one is good for anatomy review and biomechanics.

Format: Hardcover
This was the text we used in Physical Therapy school. As a beginning PT it was quite adequate but as an experienced PT who needs to have excellent palpation skills to differentiate various structures it lacks a great deal. My favorite books for surface anatomy are 3 books published by Aspen, Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spine, Diagnosis and Treatment of the Upper Extremities and Diagnosis and Treatment of the Lower Extremities written by Dos Winkel, Omer Matthijs and Valerie Phelps

This is an excellent book for palpations. The wording is clear and understandable and, the pictures are very helpful. This is a "must have" book for any athletic training library. Hoppenfeld will be of great benefit to student trainers studying for the NATABOC exam.

Am i only one that really did not care for this text? Others are much more negotiable and useful such as Special Tests for Orthopedics. Save your money and check out other texts.

When I worked at the training room at my college as a student trainer, we used this book all the time. It explains in detail what each test does and most come witha diagram so it's easy to understand. It was the bible for me, it also helped me to study for the NATA exam.
