The #1 orthopaedic evidence-based textbook and reference guide
A Doody's Core Title for 2020!
Dutton’s Orthopaedic: Examination, Evaluation and Intervention provides readers with a systematic logical approach to the examination and intervention of the orthopedic patient. This comprehensive and up-to-date fifth edition strikes the perfect balance in its coverage of the continuum of care of an orthopaedic patient. The content emphasizes the appropriate use of manual techniques and therapeutic exercise while outlining the correct applications of multiple adjuncts to the rehabilitative process.
The content reflects the consistent unified voice of a single author–a prominent practicing therapist who delivers step-by-step guidance on the anatomy, biomechanics, examination, and treatment of each joint and region. This in-depth coverage leads you logically through the systems review and differential diagnosis aided by decision-making algorithms and features new coverage on balance, pain assessment, and concussions. New videos on testing and method techniques are available on AccessPT.
This edition has an added 10-15 case studies as well as updated chapters to reflect the latest research and treatment techniques.
