This e-book is designed to provide you as a physiotherapy student or practitioner with an extensive, but easy to use overview about basic assessment techniques and special tests that are being used in physiotherapeutic assessment, organized by body part. At the same time, we are providing you with the latest evidence regarding different orthopedic tests and we are giving advice about their usability in practice according to our Clinical Value Matrix, similar to what you might know from Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Our goal with this product is to make your life as a therapist or student as easy as possible. Therefore, all assessment techniques and special tests we cover are described in a few words, illustrated with a photo in starting and end position and more importantly: redirecting you directly to the respective video on our YouTube channel, so you can watch how it should be performed (by a click on the photo)! All references we provide are clickable and will direct you to the respective research paper on Pubmed.

At last, this e-book has to be seen as a work in progress. On the one hand, our YouTube channel Physiotutors is constantly growing as new videos are added each week and on the other hand, new research is published, which might impact the clinical value of the different orthopedic tests covered in this e-book.

Therefore, if you have bought this e-book, you will automatically receive an e-mail notification as soon as a new version is released!

We would have wished to have such an e-book ourselves when we started as students and we sincerely hope that you benefit from it as much as possible! Thanks for following us on social media and for your support by buying this e-book!

    Excelente Libro electrónico, me gusta que esta basado en la evidencia clínica y me apoya mucho para mi practica clínica. Es el mejor libro que he visto de evaluación, y me gusta mucho que esta en constante actualización, estaría bien meter más evaluaciones funcionales, que ya comienzan a subir en los videos con la nueva integrante mujer al equipo. Gracias kai y Andreas.

    I can’t believe this extremely inconvenience interface of this book. I’m used to reading my physio books with kindle, ipad just swiping the page back and forth, but this book , you need to tap the arrow on the left corner of the book to turn the page..even space bar and enter key don’t work to turn the’s feel like read a book in the computer in 1990s..

    A must-have for all physiotherapists, osteopaths and manual therapists. The authors conducted an extensive research on assessment tests in manual therapy. I find it very easy to read. The more I read the more I learn. Thank you!

    Very helpful during my study and making clinical decisions. You have made the test descriptions perfect for every region! Compliments! Loving the extra information (screening/guidelines) that comes with the cervical spine and the lumbar spine. Looking forward to see those as well for the other regions.

    Un libro genial!!! Pero le doy 4 estrellas en vez de 5 ya que no me gusta el poder abrirlo solo en dos dispositivos. Tengo 2 ordenadores (uno en el trabajo), un móvil y una tablet, pudiendo abrirlo solo en dos de ellos. Por lo demás, un libro muy recomendable.

    These are probably the best 80€ that I have ever invested in a book. Absolutly greatful for your work. It has been such a great effort, that you have put into this book and together with your videos, it really help me to pass some exams and to later decide which assessment to use for my patients. I can only recommend this book to every single phystiotherapist or physio student!!!
    thumps up, guys 🙂

    The best way to spend 80euros. Totally worth it. The amount of work you put behind this must have been absolutely huge. Every physical or physiotherapist should own it.
    Congrats guys you’ve done an incredible job.
    I’ve learnd a lot of new things and my approach to therapy in general have totally changed.
    In one word: amazing. Keep going guys ! Best wishes from france.

    Very good book to easily find relevant tests and their clinical value. I would recommend it for everyone in the Musculoskeletal or Sports Medicine field.

    Great book, well structured and detailed. Works perfectly on my android-phone. I’m a physical therapist and i’m very happy with this tool. It helps me to save a lot of time (and nerves) and increases quality of my therapy.

    If you’re looking for a in depth yet easy to use tool for assessments all around the body, this e-book is excellent. The feature that allows you to easily navigate to assessments at any joint allows you to quickly double check an assessment technique, useful for both revision and practical application.

    Fab book. As stated in other reviews a lot of work has gone behind it and still being updated.
    Clear with links to informative videos; evidence based. Brilliant for a student or practising physio.
    Would give 5 stars if three (instead of two) licences granted as would like to use on phone, ipad and imac.

    A really very meaningful and worthwhile investment this book.
    One notices that the authors have put a lot of effort into the tests and have also tried very hard to underline them scientifically.
    Thank you very much for this great work.

    This is an amazing resource for students who have an intermediate knowledge of orthopedics pathologies and assessments. I am an athletic training student and this book has been a huge help for me in my education. It is relatively easy to use and the explanations of the special tests are clear and articulate. Another huge plus is the lifetime access to updates. Currently the book is in version 3 and the content has expanded exponentially. I am very excited to see the continuation of this book and its content and I absolutely recommend the purchase if you are interested in orthopedic assessment techniques.

    80€ might seem expansive for a PDF, but the amount of work behind it will show you wrong for sure ! This is the ultimate book to learn the more accurate tests and add them in your assessment routine !

    Great product! Works perfectly on my computer and phone.
    The Physiotutors channel and now their e-book are helping me through my degree more than any other textbook or website.
    So helpful to have all the assessments in a simple layout with quick access to the supporting literature and demonstrations!
