Knee examination | Applied Sciences homework help

 https://youtu.be/8CZ-219Dtlc

Although an Athletic Trainer may perform many other tests for the Knee, the focus of our activity will be on the following:  Anterior and Posterior Tests and the Valgus/Varus Test.  

The evaluation scheme is divided into four broad categories:  history, observation, palpation and special tests.  (HOPS)

History:  Present Injury, Mechanism of Injury, Injury Location, Pain Characteristics, Joint Responses, Determining chronic vs. acute, history of injury 

Observation:  Is there deformity?  Limp?  Are movements slow, jerky, asynchronous? Is the patient unable to move the body part?  Are there unnatural protrusions or lumps?  Postural malalignment?

Palpation:  Done by a licensed athletic trainer.  Bony palpation, soft tissue palpation, movement assessments, goniometric measurements (done today in class), manual muscle testing, Neurological tests:  sensory, reflex, projected vs. referred pain, motor testing

Joint Stability Testing:  Accessory, Functional Performance, (done in class today) Postural Examination, Anthropometric and Volumetric measurements.

Special Questions (Region‐specific historical examination)

  • Any back or leg pain? (Is pain in a dermatomal region – pain in the knee can be referred from the back)
  • Is there hip or ankle pain? (Knee pain can be referred from the hip or biomechanically affected by the ankle)
  • Did the patient hear a pop/click at time of injury?
  • Does the knee give way? (instability/rupture of ligaments)
  • Does the knee lock? (meniscus, true locking associated with bucket handle tears)
