    Default 97 Musculoskeletal Specialty Exam
    Exam Training Packages
    I'm having a hard time applying an ortho exam with the bullets allocated in the 97 Guidelines for this specialty. The 95 exam is pretty straightforward but this 97 exam is not as black & white. How do I take a "negative felexion McMurray" and apply that for a bullet. This is my issue and I'm not 100% sure where to apply this phrase to a bullet. Is there somewhere (book/webste) that will explain this type of sceanrio into plain 'bullet' English for me? Thanks.

    McMurray flexion refers to crepitation. This test then applies to the musculoskeletal bullet "inspection, percusson and/or palpation with notation of any misalignment, asymmetry, crepitation, defect, tenderness, massess or effusions"

    the link provided is specific to that test, however, the page includes links to every joint.
