Book Description
This new book is an introductory text (students start their studies by learning palpation skills) and concentrates on visual presentation with minimal (but essential) text. The accent will be on the practical application of palpation skills, showing the student exactly how to approach palpation and explaining how the underlying anatomy should feel. The illustrations will indicate where the fingers should be placed and how to feel, as well as recognizing what is actually being felt. All students of chiropractic, osteopathy and other manipulative therapies (as well as medical students) have to be proficient at palpation, although the method of approach varies from discipline to discipline.

Reader Review
Brilliant Reference, February 10, 2003
Reviewer: Mr Elan Silver from Perth, Western Australia
I will admit that I have not read this book cover to cover, but I have used it rather as a reference tool, and so far, it has never let me down. It contains an even spread of the simple and the technical when descibing all aspects of the human skeletal system, leaving the reader to find the relevant information. It is well illustrated with simple, labelled line-drawings, rather than the highly detailed renderings of some other texts, making memorisation and reproduction easier for the student. Skeletal anatomy is well covered and well ordered, with references provided. The appendix, which contains "Muscle origins, insertions, innervations, blood supplies and principal actions" is, I believe, one of the books strongest aspects, and is well set out; easy for memorisation.
Students will benefit from this book.
