Description

Muscle Function Testing provides information pertinent to the muscle functions. This book evaluates the method of examination that provides information about the strength of individual muscles or muscle groups that form a functional unit. Organized into three sections encompassing four parts, this book begins with an overview of the size, extent, and progress of peripheral nerve lesions. This text then discusses the nature of the simple movement pattern seen in muscle function testing. Other chapters consider the conditions for analytical physiotherapy and determination of the work capacity of the part of the body being tested. This book discusses as well the possible errors and mistakes that might occur during testing and might decrease the validity of the assessment. The final chapter deals with the demand for a better and a more rational method to therapeutic exercise. This book is a valuable resource for physiotherapists, orthopedic surgeons, physiologists, neurologists, and rheumatologists.
