Field's Anatomy, Palpation and Surface Markings by Derek Field, Jane Owen Hutchinson

The fourth edition of this classic textbook incorporates all the excellent features of the previous edition as well as including more material for today's students and practitioners. The authors have updated the text which covers the whole body: upper and lower limb, head and neck, thorax and abdomen. Within each section the bones, joints, muscles, nerves, arteries, veins are described and at the end of every chapter a review/question page is included.This book enables readers be able to identify, understand and palpate structures through an intact skin and aids the practitioner in the assessment and diagnosis of conditions using manual contact techniques, relating palpation to surface markings and anatomy. This book is essential reading for students and practitioners of medicine, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and sports medicine, and indeed all those for whom the accurate location and palpation of surface structures is an essential skill whether used to determine a diagnosis or apply treatment.


The combination of diagrams, colour photos, six anatomically stuctured and sub-divided main sections, self-asessment questions throughout, and use of colourised bold text to highlight key terms render this a very enjoyable and comprehensible.
