‘Don’t guess, Assess.” – Every doctor and therapist should own evidence-informed Orthopedic Assessment, designed as a quick reference guide for students, instructors and healthcare providers. Orthopedic Assessment is a companion book for the Orthopedic Conditions Manual and Muscle Manual.


This text bridges the gap between academics and practical application. Information sources include: original research articles with cutting-edge information, 1000s of cadaver dissections & decades of evidence based, multidisciplinary clinical experience. We also demo with different sized practitioners to show variation in biomechanics and gender application (5ft/100lbs female vs. 6ft/170lbs male).


The book’s size allows for better functional use and cost effectiveness. This text is supported by 1000s of student, clinician & instructor resources, videos, quizzes & patient handouts available on prohealthsys.com (palpation, muscle testing, orthoneuro tests, CE seminars and more).


‘Assessment is therapeutic’ – your application of skills helps to create a more accurate list of potential pathology, treatment options and relationship of trust and confidence with your patients – this text will help establish you as the expert you are.
