The Muscular System Manual: The Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body
A full-color atlas of the muscles of the human body, this text provides in-depth coverage of skeletal muscles. An easy-to-understand format organizes the material by body region, moving from head to extremities. For each region, there is an overview of the muscles of the region as a whole, with information on how muscles in that region function together and large drawings of the muscles of that entire region. Then each particular muscle in that region is described with name, the origin of that name, Greek and Latin derivations, pronunciation, attachments, actions, a drawing with an arrow showing the muscle's line of pull, innervation to two levels of detail, and arterial supply to two levels of detail. That overview is followed by a practical, step-by-step guide to palpating that muscle, a group muscle illustration to show the muscle's anatomical relationship to nearby muscles, the methodology for learning muscle actions, and clinically useful information for that muscle. Instructor's resources available.
