“Our goal with this product is to make your life as a therapist or student as easy as possible”
This paperback 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 scanning the QR-Code)! The references we provide are up to date and will help you to find the respective article on PubMed’s medical database.
At last, this paperback 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 paperback book.
We would have wished to have such a 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 book!

Compared to other books on Physical Examination we are actually at the bottom end regarding the price. The reason it is €99 is that printing costs and Amazon commission are around €80 per book. The years of work we have put into this book and are still putting into updates and the fact that it’s >600 pages isn’t nearly reflected in the price. No other book offers such easy access to video demonstrations and is so up to date as ours.
