Illustrated Essentials Of Musculoskeletal Anatomy. This book identifies the bony landmarks on the body surface as well as palpation sites of muscles. The publisher says it bridges the gap between laboratory and classroom studies of gross anatomy and actual clinical applications. The authors of this popular book are former anatomy instructors. Topics are presented from a general cephalocaudal, superficial-to-deep sequence:

  • Origin, insertion, action, innervation and palpation are detailed for each muscle
  • Each muscle is presented individually, showing its location on the skeleton and direction of its fibers
  • Muscle groups that perform major joint movements are identified and illustrated
  • Bones are illustrated and important landmarks are identified
  • Brachial plexus and lumbosacral plexus are clearly depicted
  • Peripheral nerves are diagrammed individually including both motor and cutaneous distributions
  • Muscle descriptions include simple, useful memory tips for the student or other interesting facts
  • Complete coverage of skeletal muscles, including intrinsic muscles of the hand and foot, muscles of mastication and deglutition and extraocular muscles
