Effective examination and treatment in physical therapy rely on a solid understanding of the dynamics of the joints and the functions of the surrounding muscles. This concise instructional manual helps readers to not only memorize anatomy but also to truly comprehend the structures and functions of the whole body: the intervertebral disk, the cervical spine, the cranium, the thoracic spine, the thorax, the upper extremities, lumbar spine, pelvis and hip joint, and the lower extremities. Through precise descriptions, efficiently organized chapters, and beautiful illustrations, this book relates functional anatomy to therapy practice. It provides extensive coverage of the palpation of structures and references to pathology throughout. Highlights: Accurate and detailed descriptions of each joint structure in the body, including their vessels and nerves, and their function Comprehensive guidance on the palpation of individual structures Detailed discussions on the functional aspects of muscles and joint surfaces, and the formation of joints Concise tips and references to pathology to assist with everyday practice More than 1000 illustrations clearly depicting anatomy and the interconnections between structures Physical therapists will find Functional Anatomy for Physical Therapists invaluable to their study or practice.

For courses in Two-Semester A&P. Using Art Effectively with the Most Visual Approach to A&P Visual Anatomy & Physiology combines a one-of-a-kind visual approach with a modular organization that uniquely meets the needs of today's students--without sacrificing the comprehensive coverage of A&P topics required for careers in nursing and other allied health professions. The 3rd Edition presents key new features based on recent research about how students use and digest visual information. New modules in the first chapter emphasize how to use art effectively when studying; new Integrated Figure Questions increases the likelihood that students will spend time viewing the art and prompts them to consider what they have just learned; and new SmartArt Videos, accessible via QR code in the book, help students navigate key, complex pieces of art on some of the toughest topics. New Interactive Physiology 2.0 tutorials, SmartArt Video Activities, and a mobile-friendly eText expand the options for students to use Mastering(tm) A&P as an effective practice and learning tool. Also available with Mastering A&P Mastering(tm) A&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics(tm). Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with Mastering A&P, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID.

Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrated Approach combines the study of anatomy and physiology into one well-organized and illustrated text. It teaches students about the purposes of organ systems, as well as their interconnections. It educates readers about interactions between systems and how disruption to a single system can impact overall function. The material in Anatomy and Physiology focuses on primary concepts and how to apply them. Linked learning strategies, section-specific references, and short summaries throughout each chapter emphasize and reiterate material to enhance learning and retention. Anatomically accurate, vibrant, realistic artwork helps readers visualize anatomic and physiological principles. Written as an integrative text, Anatomy and Physiology provides a consistent, balanced discussion of both anatomy and physiology within and across chapters. The book provides detailed information on the topics covered in the traditional, two-course sequence of college-level anatomy and physiology but avoids overwhelming readers with inessential information. It is suitable for courses on anatomy, physiology, and human biology, particularly those designed for programs in health care professions. Julian Pittman holds a doctorate from the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. His formal training is in neuroscience and pharmacology/toxicology, and he has taught anatomy and physiology at Christopher Newport University and William and Mary. Currently Dr. Pittman is Associate Chair of the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at Troy University in Alabama. In addition to teaching, Dr. Pittman maintains an active research program, where his research interests are focused on understanding the behavioral, neuroanatomical, and neurochemical substrates of anxiety and depression.
