Some of the chapters also offer photographs and descriptions of PT/strengthening exercises for certain conditions. I do wish they talked more about reading specific x-rays, and also about joint injections (maybe they do and I haven't gotten there yet??). The book comes with a subscription to their website, which is not yet up and running...the go live date keeps getting pushed back. The website it supposed to have videos of exams (there are also pictures with descriptions in the book), among other things).
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. I think it will make a great reference for questions that arrise around patient care of sports med/musculoskeletal issues. Part of the book is organized by "regional problems, " (ie. where is the pain) which make it quick to look things up based on a patient's complaint.
PROS: Well written, easy to ready, details physiology and explaniation with anatomy. Love the hard cover (makes it last).
CONS: Big, would have liked more physical exam tests and their sensitivity/specificity.
OVERALL: If you are thinking about this book, BUY IT. Everyone that I know that has this book has not regretted it.
i won`t say its best the best book for sports med doc. Physical exam is very well explained but the anatomy portion is not explained well. I will always like if they mention the root level association too. I am buying another sports med book soon, will see if thats any better than this.
Some more anatomical pictures would be helpful, and I can't get the online component to work...
