The Pocket Atlas of Human Anatomy: A Reference for Students of Physical Therapy, Medicine, Sports, and Bodywork

The Pocket Atlas of Human Anatomy has been produced as an aide-mémoire for the student and early practitioner of anatomy, physical therapy, chiropractic, medicine, physiotherapy, or any other health-related field.

Containing full-color illustrations, the book is a compact reference guide, detailing anatomical terms, tissues, bones, axial and appendicular skeletons, joints, and the musculoskeletal system.

A final chapter by Thomas Myers outlines The Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians which presents a map of how tracks of fascial fabric wind longitudinally through series of muscles. This new approach to structural patterning has far-reaching implications for effective movement training and manual therapy treatment.

Two appendices illustrate the major neural pathways (Appendix 1) and the major skeletal muscles (Appendix 2), including the origin, insertion, and innervation for each muscle, plus detailed charts of the main muscles involved in movement.

Forthcoming: Due 1st May 2018
