Trail Guide to the Body, 5th Edition with Interactive 3D Functional Anatomy - Primal Pictures


Before you can assess or treat a muscle, you first must be able to locate it. This acclaimed book delivers beautifully illustrated information for learning palpation and the musculoskeletal system. It makes mastering the essential manual therapy skills interesting, memorable and easy. With 504 pages and 1,400 illustrations covering more than 162 muscles, 206 bones, 33 ligaments and 110 bony landmarks, this text provides an invaluable map of the body.

This new edition includes an extensive 56-page appendix that describes the common trigger point locations and pain patterns of 100 muscles.

This Trail Guide to the Body bundle comes with Primal Pictures Interactive 3D Functional Anatomy. This hugely popular and versatile online resource brings functional anatomy to life using accurate 3D anatomy and animation. Users can quickly and clearly show muscle function during common joint movements.

Interactive 3D Functional Anatomy features:

  • Easy-to-use interface and intuitive functionality.
  • The anatomically accurate interactive 3D models allow you to tip and rotate the structures 360 degrees. You can add or remove layers of anatomy (from skin to bone) and view and label any visible structure — making it easier to learn, remember, and explain complex anatomy.
  • Stunning multi-media animations, which are labeled and linked to detailed text, contain links to extensive supporting content including high-resolution dissection slides, annotated illustrations, clinical slides, video clips, and animations.
