In this easy-to-follow, how-to-do-it atlas, internationally recognized pain expert Dr. Steven D. Waldman provides a compendium of practical physical examination techniques that you can use in your daily practice to evaluate and diagnose patients in pain. Physical Diagnosis of Pain, 5th Edition, is the only atlas devoted to this critical area of pain medicine, offering a real-world focus on how clinicians evaluate pain: “What is it?” rather than “Where is it?”. You’ll be guided step by step through the evaluation and diagnosis of more than 280 pain-related conditions based on physical signs. Concise, superbly illustrated chapters help you rapidly diagnose pathology based on physical techniques rather than relying on imaging alone.

  • Examines the full range of pain-related conditions in the cervical spine, shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand, chest wall, thorax and thoracic spine, lumbar spine, abdominal wall and pelvis, hip, knee, ankle and foot.
  • Addresses sacroiliac joint pain as well as entrapment neuropathies including carpal tunnel syndrome, tardy ulnar palsy, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and tarsal tunnel syndrome.
  • Follows a consistent format in each chapter for quick reference: anatomy, inspection, palpation, and range of motion, followed by relevant special tests.
  • Features hundreds of high-quality radiographic images, clinical photos, and color line drawings to demonstrate the physical exam clearly and simply.
  • Contains new content spanning 50 new conditions and their associated tests, including the Soto-Hall Test for Upper Thoracic Spine Pain, Sill Sign for Lumbar Instability, Compression Test for Sacroiliac Joint Pain, Rust Sign for Cervical Spine Instability, Linder Sign for Cervical Myelopathy, Jull Test for Cervical Strain, Shoulder Abduction Relief Test for Cervical Spine Pain, Kleiger Test for High Ankle Sprain, Valleix Sign for Posterior Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, and more.
  • Includes + real-time videos of Dr. Waldman and his staff performing physical examination techniques, providing expert, how-to-do-it guidance.
