You will gain the knowledge you need to use multi-pronged approaches to treat posterolateral ligament tears, posterolateral rotatory instability, combined ligament injuries, injuries causing abnormal knee movement, and much more. Underscoring the importance of accurate and timely diagnosis of posterolateral knee injuries, the author reviews the imaging and diagnostic tests to help you ensure that the presence of an injury is not overlooked or misinterpreted. With the text’s discussion of clinically relevant biomechanics and the correlation of pertinent exams needed for diagnosis, you will not only develop a firmer understanding of the relationship between instability abnormalities and posterolateral knee injuries, but you will also improve your ability to examine and recognize these injuries.
