Book Description

Newly updated, Cram Session in Goniometry and Manual Muscle Testing: A Handbook for Students & Clinicians, Second Edition is a descriptive quick reference guide for rehabilitation professionals organized in a “head-to-toe” format, including more than 400 photographs and supplemented with concise and illustrative examples of various techniques. 

The new edition of this text maintains the original essence of the first edition while touching upon updated information to speak to new clinicians. Minor revisions, such as adding color to the headers and to the sections, allow the reader easier access to the topics.  An expanded appendix and up-to-date content touch on newer technology being used and developed in these areas of clinical evaluation.
