Front Cover
F.A. Davis, 1995 - Joints - 241 pages
The chapter on Validity and Reliability includes a review of the most recent literature and exercises that teach the student how to calculate inter- and intratester reliability
-- Tables summarize the effects of age, sex, and diagnosis on ROM for each joint measured
-- Tables of the ROM needed for functional activities are included for all the joints
-- Vital information on end-feel, arthrokinematics, osteokinematics, and capsular patterns for all joints
-- Expanded coverage of recording, including the SFTR recording method and samples of various forms used currently
-- Large, clear photographs illustrate starting and ending positions and stabilization measures for each joint and help students visualize the complete procedure
-- Numerous exercises break down the learning process into manageable segments with photographs that clarify careful technique
