ORTHO study notes: lumbar, hip, shoulder, knee, ankle exams

Because so many of the tests that we must perform have the names of individuals, instead of names that are descriptive of the procedures, I just went through the list and named them such that I can remind myself the content of the exam by the words that I link together. If you know the tests well enough, the word or two that I have attached to the name may help trigger your memory of the test.
