2.0 out of 5 stars It's called editing Feb. 16 2013
By Brogan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although this book present the information in a logical manner, the information given contradicts itself throughout the book. Multiple editing and grammar errors can be found. For example, when looking at a figure of the medial ankle ligaments, the tibia and fibula are transposed. Last time I checked, the fibula was the lateral bone of the lower leg! Metatarsals are commonly confused with metacarpals. Paragraphs are repeated needlessly within the same chapter. Capsular patterns and open-packed and closed-pack positions vary depending on which chapter you find them in. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK to be used in physical therapy programs

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice layout. Too many errors. May 29 2013
By MM - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The layout of the textbook is great. It has a review of anatomy in each chapter and then goes into examination techniques, evaluation, and interventions. It would be nice if it went into a little more detail about interventions. The reason I give this book 2 stars is because there are way too many errors in the book. Pictures are mislabeled often and there are many mistakes within the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dutton's Orthopaedic Examination Evaluation and Intervention May 12 2013
By G.Degoumois - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My hobby and passion is medicine and even though I am not a physical therapy student or practitioner, this book is of great interest to me. The in-depth detail provided in each aspect of the examination, evaluation and intervention, accompanied by the various illustrations result in a formidable learning tool to help understand certain ailments that afflict people and to assess some of the proposed treatments. I am extremely satisfied in the purchase of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Pages June 27 2014
By BB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is not so much the content of the book I am rating, but the fact that I have no page numbers on my e-book pages, only locations. This does not help me when I have to synchronize with my online class. The pages need to be printed. I don't care much about the location.

5.0 out of 5 stars As a PT student, I cannot recommend Dutton enough. Feb. 18 2013
By Chaos Eric - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the title implies, I am very happy with this textbook. Dutton details (seemingly) every pathology for every aspect of the musculoskeletal system there is. He goes through exam techniques, details interventions, and adds his own clinical opinions. There are many illustrations and tables to compliment the texts, too.

The only gripe I have is that there is basically NO goniometry material within this book. I find it very odd, since ROM measurements are such a large part of a PT exam. My classmates and I had to purchase an additional text solely for that aspect (Measurement of Joint Motion, by C. Norkin and D. White--solid text, no complaints). And after said purchase, I somewhat understand why Dutton did not included it; the goni information alone would have increased the text by 1/3 or so. Still, I find this to be a flaw. Though, note that I still gave it 5 stars, demonstrating my pleasure with it otherwise.
