Summary

This highly respected, standard-setting manual teaches students to perform goniometry properly as a clinical skill, and contains numerous exercises that reinforce good technique. Every testing procedure is detailed for ease of reference, with two-color added to enhance headings, charts, and tables. The 3rd edition includes many new photographs, and has been updated to be consistent with the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice terminology.

What's New:

  • Functional activities and functional tests are accompanied by photographs and describe the ROM required for each activity, giving the student an idea of the amount of motion needed for a person to accomplish tasks of daily living
  • Each joint chapter includes illustrations showing joint anatomy and all goniometric landmarks that need to be palpated
  • Muscle length tests in the joint chapters include excessive length and screening for hypermobility
  • All chapters with muscle length tests include accompanying photographs of the tests, plus illustrations showing the anatomy involved, including proximal and distal muscle attachments
  • Discusses the relationship between ROM and disability and disablement
  • Normative ROM tables updated based on age and gender
  • Current information on prices and features of goniometers and inclinometers, including addresses and phone numbers of the distributors
  • Review of factors affecting ROM, such as body mass index, occupation, geographical area, ethnicity, sports, disease, and injury

Key Features:

  • The chapter on "Validity and Reliability" includes a review of 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
  • Vital information on end-feel, arthrokinematics, osteokinematics, and capsular patterns for all joints
