This lavishly illustrated guide to palpation techniques provides readers with a solid understanding of topographic anatomy using clear, step-by-step descriptions that teach how to first identify, and then distinguish between, the various body structures.

Full-color photographs feature models with detailed drawings of muscles, bones, and tendons sketched directly onto their skin,
indicating exactly where and how to palpate. Complementary color drawings show the functional significance of each anatomic region.

Features

  • In-depth coverage of the entire body — upper extremities, lower extremities, and the head and trunk — all in one comprehensive volume
  • Over 850 full-color photographs and illustrations enhance the text, making it especially useful for the visual learner
  • Easy-to-reference text boxes contain tips and tricks,
    including advice on finger placement, pressure application levels, and more
  • Study questions at the end of each chapter aid readers in self-assessment and review of the material

Palpation Techniques: Surface Anatomy for Physical Therapists will enable students and practitioners of physical therapy or osteopathy to develop their anatomic knowledge and optimize patient care.
