For students and health care professionals, Norkin (physical therapy, Ohio U.) and White (physical therapy, U. of Massachusetts Lowell) provide a guide to the use of goniometry in the measurement of joint motion in the upper and lower extremities to identify impairments and assess rehabilitative status. Updated and revised, this edition includes an expanded chapter on postural assessment, new coverage of bubble inclinometers and therabites, and new range-of-motion and normative value boxes for different age and gender groups. Also added is information on the effects of subject characteristics and the testing process; more measurement techniques in the spine chapters; methods to assess finger and thumb range of motion; and new photos and illustrations in the temporomandibular joint chapter. The guide has been reorganized to place measurement procedures before research findings and progresses from anatomical descriptions and landmarks used in goniometer alignment to measurement procedures.
