Patient-based learning made simple Understanding the anatomy of a sports injury is the key to unlocking the diagnosis for most clinicians. Unfortunately, anatomy is often poorly taught, is not clinically focused and many anatomy textbooks are so complicated that searching for clinically useful information is difficult. In addition, multiple pathologies can present in an overlapping fashion, making the differentiation of the various possible causes of injury problematic. Clinical Sports Anatomy classifies structures according to their anatomical reference points to form a diagnostic triangle. Discriminant questions are coupled with the more useful clinical tests and diagnostic manoeuvres to direct the reader toward a de?nitive clinical diagnosis. This approach is ?rmly rooted in evidence-based medicine and includes a list of the most appropriate investigations required to confirm diagnosis.
