Recommended extra kinesiology texts and tools for semester 2 of the Somatics Professional Training Program, if you are looking for additional or advanced resources for your studies and practice.
Frank Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy 5th Edition is another must-have book for all of medical school and beyond, and serves as an excellent reference and resource for Anatomy class and the Surgery clerkship later in medical school. It also comes with Student Consult, which is an online resource library of other illustrations, supplemental learning resources, and anatomy dissection guides.
This pain care professional's classic provides a muscle-by-muscle description of how trigger points refer pain to other parts of the body.
This Second Edition presents introductory general information on all trigger points and also detailed descriptions of single muscle syndromes for the upper half of the body. It includes 107 new drawings, a number of trigger point release techniques in addition to spray and stretch, and a new chapter on intercostal muscles and diaphragm.
For the first time, technology allows unparalleled animations of gross motor movement that show how groups of muscles become active during common motions such as jumping, walking, and running. Interactive Functional Anatomy, Second Edition, answers a clearly identified need in the teaching and understanding of body musculature and motion. This is an excellent resource with painstaking attention to detail and dynamic imagery. The software features computer graphic models of human anatomy derived from MRI scan data, and fully interactive 3-D animations show function. Pop-up labeling appears as you view the 3-D models, and you can click on any structure to bring up related text and all related animations of muscular function.
As the human body moves, muscles contract and relax, creating subtle changes in body contours and shifting patterns of light and shadow on the skin's surface. Visualizing exactly what happens beneath the skin to cause these changes on the surface is an essential skill for artists, physicians, physical therapists, and body builders — for anyone who needs to understand the body in motion. Why not paint a live model to look as though his skin had been stripped off and then photograph him in multiple poses? From that idea comes Visualizing Muscles, an innovative aid to drawing, sculpting, and learning surface anatomy. More than one hundred static and active poses are included in Visualizing Muscles. Paired photographs — one painted and labelled, one not — show how the simulated muscles produce the subtle lights and darks, hills and valleys, on the model's unpainted skin. Captions highlight the muscles called into play by a given pose.
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.
