Product description

"The Concise Book of the Moving Body" has been written for the student and early practitioner of anatomy, massage/bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic, medicine, physiotherapy, sports therapy, or any other health-related field. Containing full-colour illustrations, the book is a compact reference guide, clearly detailing anatomical orientation, tissues, in-depth information on joints, and the physiology of bones and muscles. Composite drawings of the body illustrate the major skeletal muscles (posterior and anterior, superficial and deep); the origin, insertion, innervation, and action for each muscle is supplied. Finally, a chapter by Thomas W. Myers serves as a three-dimensional bridge between the study of anatomy and its practical application. Based on his book "Anatomy Trains" (Elsevier Science), he presents a unique "whole systems' view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy, and explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial 'webbing', contributing to postural compensation and movement stability.
