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.


  • 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
