Here is an extensive and practical overview of upper extremity pathologies and manual therapy treatment options for the physician, physical therapist, or chiropractor. The three major parts of the upper extremities are covered in-depth; functional and surface anatomy, examination and diagnostic procedures, compression neuropathies, and treatment approaches are discussed for each major part. Extensive illustrations, review questions and answers, and clinical algorithms for diagnosis and treatment are also included.
For orthopedists and other health-care professionals, explains the diagnostic technique developed by Winkel to isolate the location of a lesion by selective tension on all structures that might be the cause. Basic data regarding functional anatomy and biomechanics is followed by descriptions of clinical examination, pathology, and treatment of the shoulders, the elbow, and the wrist and hand. Detailed monochrome photographs illustrate the examination techniques. Review questions and answers at the end of each of the three sections facilitate the volumes's use as a textbook or study guide for examinations
