Atlas of Surface Palpation

Atlas of Surface Palpation, 3rd Edition

Anatomy of the Neck, Trunk, Upper and Lower Limbs

Atlas of Surface Palpation, 3rd Edition,Serge Tixa,ISBN9780702062254





Palpation is an important aspect of clinical examination and one which allows the careful selection of the most appropriate manual therapy technique or manoeuvre. The new edition of this highly successful volume contains over 600 clear and precise photographs and colour artworks together with over 150 ‘pull out’ boxes to act as valuable aide memoires.

Each illustration clearly shows the surface investigation of the different anatomical structures (which include bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and elements of the neurovascular system) each accompanied by a succinct technical description.

Practical and authoritative, it is hoped that this volume will be of use to all students and practitioners involved with the manual therapies.
