Tests for Musculoskeletal Disorders
In all cases of musculoskeletal pain and lameness, diagnostic procedures to determine the nature, extent, and exact location of the injury must be performed. Evaluation of the source of pain and lameness always starts with a thorough history, inspection, and physical examination to look for sources of heat, swelling, and pain on manual palpation. In horses, hoof testers should be applied to determine whether pain can be elicited from structures within the hoof capsule. Next, the gait and locomotion of the animal are evaluated. In a weight-bearing lameness, the lame leg always bears less weight and often has a shorter duration of bearing weight. In swinging leg lameness, the lame leg abducts or adducts to avoid flexion of a painful joint.

Musculoskeletal symptoms are very common and may arise from joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bursas see Introduction to the Biology of the Musculoskeletal System. Common symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders include pain , weakness , stiffness , joint noises , and decreased range of motion. Inflammation may cause pain, swelling, warmth, tenderness, impaired function, and sometimes redness of the overlying skin. Inflammation can result from many different musculoskeletal disorders, such as autoimmune disorders for example, rheumatoid arthritis and infections.
A doctor can often diagnose a musculoskeletal disorder based on the history and the results of a physical examination. Laboratory tests, imaging tests, or other diagnostic procedures are sometimes necessary to help the doctor make or confirm a diagnosis. Laboratory tests are often helpful in making the diagnosis of a musculoskeletal disorder. For example, the erythrocyte sedimentation rate ESR is a test that measures the rate at which red blood cells settle to the bottom of a test tube containing blood.
Она посмотрела на часы, потом на Стратмора. - Все еще не взломан. Через пятнадцать с лишним часов. Стратмор подался вперед и повернул к Сьюзан монитор компьютера.
Беккер пожал плечами. Парень зашелся в истерическом хохоте. - Ну и .
Стратмор повернулся и с удивлением увидел Хейла. Сьюзан поняла, в чем дело: все это время Хейл вел себя тихо, подозрительно тихо, поскольку отлично знал, что нет такой диагностики, в которой использовалась бы цепная мутация, тем более такая, которая занимала ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже восемнадцать часов. Хейл не проронил ни слова. Казалось, вспыхнувшая на его глазах перепалка абсолютно его не касается.
