The Concise Book of Muscles 2nd Edition
Fully illustrated and easy to use, the book clearly illustrates the origin and insertion (inset drawing), and provides details of the action, nerve supply, and functional movement plus a small amount of interesting information for each muscle where relevant. A unique strength of the book is its linking of each muscle to sport, highlighting those that are heavily used and therefore subject to injury, with line drawings of strengthening and stretching exercises, where appropriate. An extremely useful book for the student and early practitioner of anatomy, massage/bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, physiotherapy, athletes, and anyone interested in the workings of the human body.
The late Chris Jarmey, M.C.S.P., D.S., M.R.S.S., qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1979, and taught anatomy and bodywork therapy throughout Europe.
