"This is by far the most comprehensive and user-friendly text for both professor and student! I am continuing to use it in my Athletic Training Program, and beginning next year, I will institute it into my PT courses in Ortho I & II."Vincent J. Hudson, MS, PT, ATC, MBA, University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida, review of a previous edition.

Completely revised and updated, the 4th Edition of the field’s standard resource brings you all field’s most current knowledge and an all-new full-color art program. Its superb combination of detailed illustrations and precise language makes even the most complicated concepts and techniques clear.

Organized by body region, each chapter begins with a review of anatomy and biomechanics; proceeds through clinical evaluation, pathologies, and related special tests; and concludes with a discussion of on-field or initial management of specific injuries.

The Plus Code inside new, printed texts gives you access to the instructor and student resources online at DavisPlus, including your Davis Digital Version, range of motion animations, and review questions for every chapter.
