Summary

Significantly revised and updated, the 2nd edition of Muscle and Sensory Testing incorporates precise anatomic testing techniques in a well-organized and easy-to-use format. It features a unique chapter on sensory testing, illustrations of gravity-resisted and gravity-eliminated positions for testing, and a chapter on using observational gait analysis as a screening tool for muscle testing. Photographs of testing procedures and line drawings are included; the line drawings of muscles are now enhanced to show innervations. This new edition also includes a CD-ROM with valuable additional material. Instructor resources available; contact your sales representative for details.
