Diagnosis of diseases and injuries of the motion system consists of the medical history, physical examination, laboratory and radiological tests, and other specialized tests. Orthopaedic examination may also include examination of other organs, as some diseases manifest secondarily as an orthopedic problem.
Medical history: The patient comes most commonly due to pain, swelling, limited motions and other subjective complaints such as muscle weakness or numbness. The patient may also notice certain changes on the body, while performing usual daily activities, which can assist in examination and diagnosis, for example, changes on the skin, swelling of joints and limbs, the deformation of a body part, etc. Clinical examination: follows the defined order. It is necessary to be familiar with the general condition of the patient ('status praesens'), then to perform the examination of the entire musculoskeletal system and then, finally, to get an overview of the sick region ('status LOCALIS'). Firstly, inspection (when at rest and while conducting a movement), then palpation (at rest and movement), and, at last, the doctor measures the range of active and passive movements of the joints and spine. If swelling or deformity is found it is necesarry to perform the measurement of this particular region.
