Hollinshead's Functional Anatomy of the Limbs and Back logically blends regional and systemic coverage of anatomy, integrating material for a complete overview of the subject. An easy-to-read narrative style combines with numerous quick-reference tables and clear illustrations to support the text. Functional and clinical information is correlated with anatomical material in Functional/Clinical Notes boxes that offer analyses of everyday activities and associated movements, information on nerve lesions, and study questions and exercises. While focusing primarily on the musculoskeletal system of the limbs and back, this text also provides well-rounded coverage of the entire body with relevant information on the head and neck, thorax, and abdomen and pelvis. The new 8 th edition features additional functional information, revised terminology, new questions, and many new and revised illustrations.

  • Abundant tables on muscles, nerves, as well as clear, concise, and informative illustrations, condense and clarify important concepts for easy reference.
  • Complete discussions of specific joint movements and the muscles involved are provided following anatomical information on individual muscles, joints, and other structures within an area, to help unify related information.
  • Sections on surface anatomy describe palpable structures that can be recognized by combining the sense of touch with anatomical knowledge, providing the reader with a means of "visualizing" anatomy during patient examination.
  • The glossary provides a quick reference for essential terms related to the material in the text.
  • Clear, concise, informative illustrations-some enhanced with a second color-provide excellent visual support for the text and enable the reader to better interpret the anatomical material.
