Long description:
A user-friendly illustrated guide to all the major skeletal muscles, 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, chiropractic, medicine, nursing, and physiotherapy. Easy to use and fully illustrated with more than 500 drawings, it provides a complete profile for each muscle, clearly showing its origin, insertion, nerve supply, blood supply, and action. Each muscle drawing is accompanied by a unique inset of the relevant attachments, which (along with the precise text) paints a complete picture from which to learn.

There is a useful appendix that clearly illustrates the dermatomes and sensory nerve supply to further enhance the reader’s knowledge.

While designed for the student and beginning practitioner of anatomy, massage, bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, physiotherapy, yoga, and Pilates, The Pocket Atlas of Skeletal Muscles is equally useful for athletes and anyone interested in the workings of the human body.

“The illustrations are of a very high quality, both in terms of presentation and pedagogical value.”
