Description

Revised and updated: a user-friendly illustrated guide to human anatomy, written for students and practitioners.

This concise, pocket-sized guide is a full-color on-the-go reference for students and practitioners of anatomy, massage, physical therapy, chiropractics, medicine, nursing, and physiotherapy. This second edition is more comprehensive, and now includes the skin, and the cardiovascular system, and more.
 
Chapters 1 through 7 explain anatomical orientation, tissues, bones, the axial and appendicular skeletons, joints, and skeletal muscles and fascia. Subsequent chapters detail the four major muscle groups with composite illustrations of each region’s deep and superficial muscles in both anterior and posterior views. Color tables show each muscle’s origin, insertion, innervation, and action.
 
A final chapter by Thomas W. Myers outlines myofascial meridians, presenting a map of fascial tracks and illustrating how they wind longitudinally through series of muscles. This new approach to structural patterning has far-reaching implications for effective movement training and manual therapy treatment.
 
Three appendices illustrate cutaneous nerve supply and dermatomes (Appendix 1), the major skeletal muscles (Appendix 2), including detailed charts of the main muscles involved in movement, and the remaining body systems (Appendix 3).
 
“Impressive artwork throughout—far better than many of the current textbooks.”—Dr. Robert Whitaker, MA MD MChir FRCS FMAA, Anatomist, University of Cambridge, author of Instant Anatomy, Fifth Edition and A Visual Guide to Clinical Anatomy (Wiley-Blackwell)
