  • "Pocket Orthopaedics is an excellent choice for a reference guide when it comes to evidence-based practice. The book is designed to give students and healthcare professionals in orthopedics a handy resource to quickly confirm diagnoses with the Evidence Based Clinical Prediction Rules and the statistics to back up the conclusion.

    I highly recommend this book for students, new graduates, and veteran physical therapists. During my review period I used this reference guide multiple times in the clinical setting.  Pocket Orthopaedics will always be within my reach in the clinic."
