There are over 40 orthopedic tests for examination of the knee. Physical therapists must be able to identify the most appropriate tests to use based on each patient’s presentation. This requires an understanding of the statistical values that influence the utility of these tests as screening vs. diagnostic tools. Once the clinical diagnosis is determined, clinicians must be able to recall and implement the most suitable joint mobilization technique to restore proper arthrokinematics. This module provides physical therapy professionals with guidelines for completing an orthopedic examination of the knee and specific evidence-based interventions, including joint mobilization techniques, to implement.


The goal of this educational program is to provide physical therapy professionals with information about the orthopedic examination and joint mobilization techniques of the knee.
After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Describe at least three tests to incriminate the meniscus.
  • Identify at least six tests to assess the integrity of the knee ligamentous structures.
  • Describe at least two mobilization techniques that can be used to increase knee mobility.
