Incorporating color photographs and drawings, Cleland (Franklin Pierce College) illustrates the procedures for testing the range of motion, pain level, muscular strength, and reflexes of patients, and evaluates the diagnostic utility of each test and measure. Each chapter addresses a specific body region, and reviews the relevant osteology, arthrology, mycology, and neurology. Tables list the measurement properties of clinical examination procedures and likelihood ratios.
