Evidence Informed Orthopedic Assessment is a quick reference guide developed for students, instructors, and healthcare providers. Use the Orthopedic Assessment textbook in the classroom and clinic for patient education.
‘Don’t guess, assess.” — Every therapist and doctor should own evidence-informed Orthopedic Assessment.
This text bridges the gap between academics and practical application. Information sources include original research articles with cutting-edge information, 1000s of cadaver dissections, and decades of evidence-based, multidisciplinary clinical experience. We demo with different sized practitioners (5ft/100lbs female vs. 6ft/170lbs male) to show variation in biomechanics and gender application. This text is supported by 1000s of student, clinician and instructor resources, videos, quizzes and patient handouts available on prohealthsys.com (palpation, muscle testing, orthoneuro tests, CE seminars and more).
‘Assessment is therapeutic’ — your application of skills helps to create a more accurate list of potential pathology, treatment options, and relationship of trust and confidence with your patients. This text will help establish you as the expert you are.
