Required and recommended textbooks and other curriculum materials for Semester 2 of the Somatics Professional Training Program.
This text provides the reader an understanding of the mechanics of the joints with the help of diagrams rather than text. The commentaries are short (on double page spreads); the quality, clarity and simplicity of the drawings and diagrams are such that they could be understood without any verbal explanation. The drawings are unusually clear: everything which could hinder understanding has been removed and one feels that the author has foreseen the difficulties which the student could encounter.
This new 33 1/2" budget painted skeleton has muscle insertions and origins painted on the left side of the skeleton and numbers of important features on the right side. Calvarium is cut with moveable jaw mounted on springs. Arms, legs and skull are removable. Stand and keycard included.
If you are looking at a skeleton of this size and quality, you may also be interested in the unpainted version of this model.
This richly illustrated text teaches the basic techniques of clinical massage therapy by embedding illustrations of internal structures directly into photographs of live models.Each muscle or muscle group is shown, along with surrounding structures, surface landmarks, and the therapist's hands. Useful as a textbook of clinical massage and anatomy, this text can also be used as a practical patient communication tool. Basic clinical techniques such as compression, stripping massage, myofascial stretching and cross-fiber friction are included.
A convenient and easy way to study the essential information about skeletal muscles, peripheral nerves, and muscle group actions. Cards are a study aid to accompany the latest version of the famous anatomy/kinesiology reference Sieg & Adams classic, Illustrated Essentials of Musculoskeletal Anatomy or any other anatomy text.
Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards are the most convenient and portable way to review anatomy on the fly. This Third Edition contains full-color illustrations from Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, 5th Edition paired with concise text identifying those structures and reviewing relevant anatomical information and clinical correlations. Online access at studentconsult.com lets you review anatomy from any computer, plus additional "bonus" cards and over 300 multiple-choice questions.
Test your knowledge of neuroscience with Dr. David L. Felten's fun, fast, and full-color Netter's Neuroscience Flash Cards. These portable, updated cards let you quiz yourself on anatomy, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation. They now include imaging content and offer increased clinical correlations and new concept summaries. Illustrations from Netter's Atlas of Neuroscience, 2nd Edition, emphasize the essentials of human neuroscience for a quick, yet in-depth review, complete with labeling, explanations, and color codes that cross-reference the atlas.
This renowned classic provides unparalleled coverage of manual muscle testing, plus evaluation and treatment of faulty and painful postural conditions. The thoroughly updated Fifth Edition is completely reorganized and has new, expanded treatment and exercise sections in each chapter. Other features include a new section on post-polio syndrome, additional case studies comparing Guillain-Barre to polio muscle tests, a new full-color design, and a first-of-its-kind chart of upper extremity articulations.
This is a short, highly illustrated textbook of neuroanatomy that makes clear the relevance of the anatomy to clinical neurology. It avoids overburdening the reader with topographical detail that is unnecessary for the medical student. Minimum assumptions are made of existing knowledge of the subject.
