The book is technical enough for him and yet written plainly enough for me to understand.
Amazon Customer
This book is great for manual muscle testing, origin and insetion points of muscles, and innervations.
Texarkana
It came in great and was buried in the stack which helped protect it since the box was all beat up.

Format: Hardcover
Now in its 5th edition, this book has become "thee" muscle testing book to have. Who's it for? Anyone who has a need to be able to MANUAL muscle test any of the body's muscles. This would include such professionals as doctors, nurses, physical therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, etc.

How does the book work? Well, you look up the particular muscle you want to test, look at the picture of the test position, and then simply apply manual pressure to the limb in the instructed direction. If it sounds easy, it is the way this book shows you- included are dozens and dozens of GREAT pictures that show you precisely what to do. So, if you have a need to regularly test muscles, I highly recommend you get this book- it's a little bit more expensive than some of the other muscle testing books, but its the best I've come across so far- in fact it sits right on my desk for reference. Health professionals might also be interested in The Sixty-Second Motivator to help get clients motivated to do their home exercise programs consistently.

In the fields of fitness, physical therapy, sports, orthopedics or anatomy and biomechanical interest, this book is a classic that should prove invaluable to you. It can help professionals or laypeople discover muscular imbalances, injuries and causes of pain in their bodies or the bodies of others.

It is clearly and well presented, very well-researched and accepted in the medical field. My main profession is fitness and health trainer and this book is a tremendous contribution to my practice.

I have now ordered this book twice that is listed as the UPDATED AND REVISED 5TH EDTITION and have received the old Edition with an Anatomy CD that works on Windows 2000 or XP computers and not Vista/Windows 7. Beware, I do not know why the vendors are sending out the old edition even though they have it listed as the UPDATED AND REVISED EDITION. I would not have been so aware I had the Unrevised/Unupdated Edition until I tried to run the Anatomy DVD in my computer. Sounds like a very good book if I could get the correct one. BEWARE.

In this latest edition of the classic Physical Therapy textbook, the organization of the information has been overhauled and it contains less chapters. I never read the previous editions, but the author claims it is better organized. I found it to be well-organized indeed.

The photos are great, including the classic black/white pictures demonstrating the different tests. The anatomy drawings are very good with excellent detailed descriptions of functional anatomy. The Primal Pictures CD-ROM included with the book is awesome. You can rotate anatomy diagrams 360 degrees while adding and removing anatomical structures such as ligaments, stabilizer and postural muscles, prime movers, veins, arteries, nerves, etc. It's a fantastic tool! I'm currently using some images for a couple of articles I'm writing on corrective stretching and strengthening. It is most certainly a must read for fitness and therapy pros.

As a certifed personal trainer and pilates instructor, I work primarily with individuals who are challenged with back pain and various joint problems. This book provides a clear and concise protocol and information for working with individuals with muscle imbalances. You definitely need a strong background in this area to understand and use the material appropriately. The DVD is also an excellet companion to the book.
