This course utilizes content from the textbook “Joint Range of Motion and Muscle Length Testing” Second Edition by Nancy Berryman Reese, PhD, PT and William D. Bandy, PhD, PT SCS, ATC © 2010, published by Elsevier.
Instructional Level: Beginner to Intermediate
This text provides clear, step-by-step instructions for manual muscle testing, helping each therapist to visualize testing procedures with detailed illustrations. Reinforce your understanding through case studies and clinical notes.
Throughout the second edition, information has been updated to reflect the latest testing techniques, data on normative values for range of motion, and reliability and validity studies from the current literature. In each technique chapter you will find line drawings of the joints to supplement the anatomical descriptions and photographs of the goniometric landmarks. Information on arthrokinematics and functional range of motion have been included to facilitate a better understanding of joint mechanics and the functional application of joint motion.
To better meet your professional needs, this fully illustrated text of 509 pages has been carefully broken down by sections into 3 modules. Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).
Each 10 contact hour module can be purchased individually or combined with one or all of the other modules from this course to create a Course Bundle. Each course is offered in two easy formats to again meet your professional needs. You can choose to have immediate access to your course by selecting the online format (PDF download) or a hard copy of the material can be rushed to your home by selecting our mail format.
