MSExams

Systematic Musculoskeletal Examinations is a clear, step-by-step learning text, atlas, and video series designed to teach essential and foundational skills of musculoskeletal physical assessment. Systematic Musculoskeletal Examinations presents a 3-part learning system:

  1. Screening Musculoskeletal Examination (SMSE): rapid assessment of structure and function.
  2. General Musculoskeletal Examination (GMSE): comprehensive assessment of joint inflammation and arthritis.
  3. Regional Musculoskeletal Examination (RMSE): focused assessments of structure and function combined with special testing of the shoulder, knee and neck and low back.

For more information, see Systematic Musculoskeletal Examinations, by George V. Lawry.
