Musculoskeletal Examination, 3rd Edition
April 2009, Wiley-Blackwell
This third edition includes more and better anatomy illustrations; over 850 illustrations, x-rays and MRIs are perfect as a quick reference guide, while the detailed descriptions and clinically relevant examples of frequently encountered conditions will help out even the most novice practitioner.
The chapter on basic science, the brief overview of anatomy, and the introductory remarks at the start of each chapter that provide a biomechanical overview of the region featured, all ensure Musculoskeletal Examination will help you gain the understanding necessary to make a correct diagnosis and determine a successful treatment plan for your patients.
Musculoskeletal Examination is ideal for physiotherapists, physiatrists, orthopedists, medical students, practitioners and all those involved in sports medicine and clinical massage.

Ideal for teaching introductory courses, with tables and boxed
features to highlight and summarize key concepts, but detailed
enough for professional reference and when the student enters
Now includes more anatomy illustrations; ‘sample examination' boxes to highlight difficulties; and over 800 illustrations, x-rays and MRIs
A great undergraduate book. I liked the synoptic and systematic approach. I would possibly recommend it to those students who wish to develop better MSK skills. (Vasileios Lepesis, School of Health, University of Plymouth)
