Patient-based learning made simple

Understanding the anatomy of a sports injury is the key to unlocking the diagnosis for most clinicians.

Unfortunately, anatomy is often poorly taught, is not clinically focused and many anatomy textbooks are so complicated that searching for clinically useful information is difficult. In addition, multiple pathologies can present in an overlapping fashion, making the differentiation of the various possible causes of injury problematic. Clinical Sports Anatomy classifies structures according to their anatomical reference points to form a diagnostic triangle.

Discriminant questions are coupled with the more useful clinical tests and diagnostic manoeuvres to direct the reader toward a definitive clinical diagnosis. This approach is firmly rooted in evidence-based medicine and includes a list of the most appropriate investigations required to confirm diagnosis.

Key Features

  • the four step process (define and align; listen and localize;palpate and re-create; alleviate and investigate)
  • the accurate orientation of the `triangle system' which aligns the questioning and subsequent examination to focus on surrounding structures that may be injured, not just the most obvious one diagnostic reference tables
  • 38 case studies of patient presentations covering a variety of sports injuries
  • over 60 rich and original anatomical illustrations
