Palpation techniques :surface anatomy for physical therapists



This step-by-step reference will help practitioners and students in physical therapy and osteopathy palpate body structures. The first chapter presents basic principles of surface anatomy, explains when and why to use palpation, and outlines palpation techniques. Later chapters cover all major musculoskeletal areas of the human body; chapter study questions are included. Coverage is organized by both layer and region, emphasizing a particular structure’s depth and relationship to surrounding structures, with discussion of what palpation can reveal in clinical examination. This second edition now offers a total of 800 color photos and illustrations; some are photos of anatomical structures that are sketched directly onto the model’s skin. This edition also covers new palpation techniques for the shoulder and provides new study questions. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
