Introduction to musculoskeletal assessment

A guide for medical students and healthcare professionals.

Musculoskeletal disorders are the commonest cause of disability in the UK. Each year 15 per cent of patients on a general practitioner’s list will consult their doctor with a locomotor problem, and such conditions form 20–25 per cent of a GP’s workload. About 30 per cent of those with any physical disability, and 60 per cent of those with a severe disability, have a musculoskeletal disorder as the primary cause of their problems.
