Excerpt

Table 164.1 lists abnormalities that may be discovered in the musculoskeletal system. If abnormalities are detected in the musculoskeletal examination, there are several questions that the examiner should keep in mind while collecting and recording the data: Is the problem a local one or are many areas involved? Is the problem symmetrical? Is the functional abnormality due to: A defect in the forces acting on the joint? A defect in the fulcrum (joint) itself? Are there systemic manifestations (e.g., rash, fever)?
