Publisher: Lww
ISBN: 1582558507
Release Date: 2012-01
Genre: Medical

"As the field of massage therapy has gained greater acceptance, its role within the health field has increased commensurately. For this reason, there is a growing need for advanced treatment techniques that are oriented toward clinical rehabilitation of clients who present with musculo-skeletal conditions. The purpose of this book is to present an array of these advanced treatment techniques that can be used by the massage therapist and other manual therapists. Advanced Treatment Techniques for the Manual Therapist: Neck is designed to be used by the practicing therapist who wants to learn advanced techniques that likely were not taught during his or her training at school. This book is also designed to comfortably fit into the curriculum of a massage therapy or other bodywork school that desires to teach these techniques, whether it is within the core curriculum or within the continuing education offerings. Note that what is and is not within the scope of practice of a massage therapist or other manual therapist varies from state to state, and occasionally varies from one town, city, county, or province to another. It is the responsibility of the practicing therapist to make sure that he or she is practicing legally and employing treatment techniques that are within the scope of his or her license or certification"--Provided by publisher.

Joe Muscolino’s The Muscular System Manual: The Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body, 4th Edition is an atlas of the muscles of the human body. This approachable, yet detailed, musculoskeletal anatomy manual provides both beginner and advanced students with a thorough understanding of skeletal muscles in a compartmentalized, customizable layout. Each muscle spread shows the individual muscle drawn over a photo of the human body, with an arrow to indicate the line of pull of the muscle, and explains: the muscle name, the origin of that name, Greek and Latin derivations, pronunciation, attachments, actions, eccentric contraction function, isometric contraction function, innervation to two levels of detail with predominant levels in bold, and arterial supply to two levels of detail. This new edition also features robust Evolve resources, an updated art program, and new chapter review and critical thinking questions that encourage you to apply what you have learned to prepare for practice. UNIQUE! Overlay art, consisting of over 380 full-color anatomical illustrations of muscles, bones, and ligaments drawn over photographs, helps identify the positions of muscles and bones in the human body. UNIQUE! Electronic Muscle and Bone Review Program features a base photograph with a skeleton drawn in and a list of every muscle for each major region of the body so students can choose any combination of muscles and place them onto the illustration — allowing them to see not only the muscle attachments, but also the relationship among the muscles of the region. Complete muscle coverage in an easy-to-understand layout makes this text appropriate for novices to anatomy, as well as intermediate and advanced students. Content organized by body region and includes information on how muscles in that region function together and large drawings of the muscles of that region so you can go directly to the topic you are studying. Covers the methodology for each muscle with information for learning muscle actions to explain the reasoning behind each action — and encourage you to learn and not just memorize.

For every photograph showing an anatomical structure accessible to palpation, a model whose physique shows the structure clearly has been chosen. Each chapter has up to four subsections, treating the various aspects of each body region. These cover osteology, myology (musculotendinous structures), arthrology (joints and ligaments) and lastly nerves and blood vessels. Each photograph is carefully presented and accompanied by a section of text describing the method of approach to finding the structure concerned. Whenever necessary, reminders, essential for the proper use of the methods of approach (attachments, actions and innervations) are included. Clinical notes highlight the link between palpation and clinical diagnoses.

Anatomical Kinesiology

Author: Barbara E. Gench
Publisher: Eddie Bowers Publishing Company
ISBN: 1578790034
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Medical

This book is intended as a text for undergraduate courses in kinesiology for students preparing to be therapists and exercise scientists. Its contents are based upon an underlying concept in which emphasis is placed on the importance of an anatomical basis as the pivotal point around which mechanical concepts can subsequently be formed. Among the changes in this new edition is the addition of palpation sites for determining the proper function of each of the muscles. Students are given specific actions to perform so that the working muscle may be easily palpated as it contracts.
