Basic Assessment of the Knee (continued)

Welcome to lab class 9!

In this lab class you will continue with the assessment of the knee joint. Just like in the hip joint, the focus will be on palpating the major structures around the knee.



1) Practice palpation on several fellow students. You will realize how different eachothers anatomy is.

Preparation for next week:

Be careful! The ankle joint consists of a talocrural joint and a subtalar joint.
