The book has the following structure: the principles of the examination are discussed in Chapter 2. Chapters 3, 4 and 5 cover the examination of the hip, knee and foot/ankle respectively. Each of these chapters starts with a section about the theoretical background (anatomy and kinesiology, terminology). Chapter 6 describes the various examinations for children, as many orthopaedic problems in children require a different approach than that in adults.
