Hollingshead's Functional Anatomy of the Limbs & Back, eighth edition by David B. Jenkins, PhD
This highly respected source offers you a thorough understanding of the correlation between musculoskeletal anatomy and function. It combines a strong emphasis on functional and clinical relevance with a user-friendly presentation that makes complex ideas easy to understand.
Introductory chapers review key anatomical terms and provide a basic overview of tissues and organ systems. Later sections thoroughly detail the muscles, bones, joints, vessels, nerves and function of the upper limb, the back, the lower limb and the head, neck and trunk.
Plus, abundant tables present key data at a glance on muscle origin and insertion, action, innervation and segmental innervation. Precise illustrations clarify anatomical and functional concepts. Review questions and learning exercises help you to build your understanding of the material.
Therapist Recommends: Functional, meaning how it works in real life, not just in anatomical position. Essential for making the connection between anatomy and injury.
