Musculoskeletal Exam Videos

These videotaped presentations provide primary care physicians with useful overviews of general physical examinations for musculoskeletal conditions in the shoulder, knee, hip, low back, and foot and ankle. In each video, the presenting physician describes each test in detail while performing the examination on a live subject.
