Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Many of you have greatly enjoyed my earlier book Functional Assessment in Massage Therapy, and this one takes orthopedic assessment concepts for the massage therapist to a whole new level! Here are some of the major changes for the new text: *Many new conditions and special orthopedic tests covered *Far more detailed information about all the pathological conditions covered *Over 400 new photographs and anatomical images *Outstanding anatomical graphics from MediClip and Primal Pictures *Additional explanation about the biomechanical function of each test so you can better understand them *Each condition follows the HOPRS format so when the condition is described you also have detailed information listed about: H: What the client will say in the history O: What you will see in observation P: Any unique characteristics evident with palpation R: Results from active movement, passive movement or manual resistive tests S: Any special orthopedic tests used to identify the condition *A new section under each condition called "Differential Evaluation" that describes other conditions that would have similar symptoms that should also be considered.
