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 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution for clients suffering from plantar fasciitis.
I have just finished my 1st year studying Physiotherapy and have struggled learning anatomy - mainly due to the quantity and complexity. However, this book is amazing. It's a hardback and will last forever, so justifying the cost (it's not cheap) but worth every penny.
Recommend to anyone needing more detailed knowledge of anatomy, how posture effects muscles and how to test muscles for potential weaknesses.
I'll be using this regularly over the next 2 years.....so physio students....check it out ; )
Unfortunately do not have all the muscles
Has some difficult organization in terms of index and some times it takes to long to be sure that a certain muscle is not describe
Although It didn't fill all the gaps in my knowledge, it certainly is an amazing book with a huge wealth of knowledge. i haven't used the muscle strength tests as I am not qualified as a Pysiotherapist and I am certainly still happy.
I like the illustration of abdominal muscle fibres!
I like the detail and accuracy of the information written.
I could go on...
All in all, a good book, but not a great one, it does have the origins and insertions and the actions of all the relevent muscles and groups, but it does't go in to any real detail about pain, you are expected to know about the mechnisms of pain and sporting injuries, this book literally just talks about and explains muscles tests.
