In this book, now in its sixth edition, Dr. James Cyriax describes a systematic method of clinical examination based on the detailed assessment of function of each of the moving parts. Referred pain can thus readily be traced away from the apparent cause to the tissues actually giving rise to symptoms. As exact an assessment as possible can then be made of the position and nature of the lesion. From mastery of this system a successful course of management can then be devised. This book includes discussion of trauma to soft tissues, pressure on nerves, and the vexing question of referred pain, but the major part of the text is devoted to a systematic description of the moving parts showing in detail how each can be assessed so that accurate diagnosis can be achieved. This book, the Textbook of Orthopaedic Medicine Vol. 1, Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Lesions, is fully illustrated and new pictures have been added to this edition. Some chapters included in the book are: The lumbar region, the treatment of intractable backache, Examination of the shoulder, and other body parts. The text has been fully revised and brought up to date.
