Summary "This book teaches the reader how to properly examine a patient with a suspected focal neuropathy. This instruction includes the pertinent anatomy of each peripheral nerve, clear photographs illustrating the muscular examination, and also discussion on how to approach localization and diagnosis. Because a strong foundation in anatomical relationships is paramount for examining patients with nerve injury, this is stressed in the text and by using numerous illustrations. Readers can and will read the entire book and work to memorize the more common problems and exams they will perform. They will then consult it either before or after examining patients with less common problems"--Provided by publisher
