Synopsis: Revised and updated: a user-friendly illustrated guide to human anatomy, written for students and practitioners. This concise, pocket-sized guide is a full-color, on-the-go reference for students and practitioners of anatomy, massage, physical therapy, chiropractics, medicine, nursing, and physiotherapy. The Pocket Atlas of Human Anatomy, revised edition, interweaves text and images in a user-friendly and accessible way. Images have been critically assessed and modified from the previous edition for a highly reliable learning tool of bones, muscles, and nerves, plus all the other major body systems. A final chapter by Thomas W. Myers outlines The Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians, which presents a map of how tracks of fascial fabric wind longitudinally through series of muscles. This new approach to structural patterning has far-reaching implications for effective movement training and manual therapy treatment. Three appendices illustrate cutaneous nerve supply and dermatomes (Appendix 1), the major skeletal muscles, including detailed charts of the main muscles involved in movement (Appendix 2), and the remaining body systems (Appendix 3). The Author: The late Chris Jarmey, MCSP DS MRSS, qualified as a chartered physiotherapist in 1979, and subsequently taught body mechanics, bodywork therapy, and anatomy extensively throughout Europe for over thirty years. He was the author of several best-selling books, including The Concise Book of Muscles, Fourth Edition, also published by North Atlantic Books. Contributor Thomas W. Myers is the author of Anatomy Trains, Fourth Edition (2020 Elsevier) and a number of online learning programs available at “Impressive artwork throughout—far better than many of the current textbooks.” —Dr. Robert Whitaker, MA MD MChir FRCS FMAA, Anatomist, University of Cambridge, author of Instant Anatomy, Fifth Edition and A Visual Guide to Clinical Anatomy (Wiley-Blackwell)
