Palpation is one of the most important aspects in clinical examination and the diagnostic approach enables a better application of the manual techniques used. This book contains 800 precise black and white photographs (many of which have never appeared in written works before) which are spread out over 12 chapters.

They clearly illustrate the surface investigation of the different anatomical structures (bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and neurovascular system) and each is accompanied by a technical description.

A reference manual for both students and practitioners, this book is also a methodological guide to a more practical and professional application of anatomy. Written to be both practical and concrete, it is of service to a diagnostic procedure in which palpation is one of the vital methods of clinical examination.

It will also prove to be a precise and rigorous tool for a better application of manual techniques practised in the medical or allied health fields. This new edition includes the addition of a rubric entitled "Application" for each photo, 80 new photos and 4-colour anatomical plates by Netter.
