The physical examination of the lower extremities is a fundamental part of the standard physical exam and relies on the previous comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of this region. Mainly, this exam consists of inspection and palpation by the physician while asking manipulating the patient’s limbs to assess the joints.
The assessment focuses on the evaluation of the proper functioning of the muscles, supporting ligaments and cartilages, and bony components of the lower extremities. The key is to identify signs of abnormal functioning, such as a reduction in range of motion, visible deformity, and pain.
