Now in its 25th year, this best-selling work is the only neuroanatomy atlas to integrate neuroanatomy and neurobiology with extensive clinical information. It combines full-color anatomical illustrations with over 200 MRI, CT, MRA, and MRV images to clearly demonstrate anatomical-clinical correlations. This edition contains many new MRI/CT images and is fully updated to conform to Terminologia Anatomica. Fifteen innovative new color illustrations correlate clinical images of lesions at strategic locations on pathways with corresponding deficits in Brown-Sequard syndrome, dystonia, Parkinson disease, and other conditions. The question-and-answer chapter contains over 235 review questions, many USMLE-style. Interactive Neuroanatomy, Version 3, an online component packaged with the atlas, contains new brain slice series, including coronal, axial, and sagittal slices.

Die meisten muskulären Beschwerden und Schmerzen werden durch nicht behandelte Triggerpunkte verursacht oder beeinflusst. Dies sind lokalisierte empfindliche Stellen in den Muskeln bzw. im Fasziensystem. Werden diese Triggerpunkte richtig verstanden und behandelt, kann eine rasche und anhaltende Schmerzlinderung erreicht werden. Die aktualisierte dritte Auflage umfasst für jeden besprochenen Muskel neue Behandlungsrichtlinien zur Selbsthilfe und für den Therapeuten. Dabei wird die topaktuelle Theorie und Praxis zu den Triggerpunkten abgedeckt. Das Einleitungskapitel beschreibt die Grundlagen der Triggerpunkte und enthält detaillierte Therapie-protokolle. Die Kapitel Sieben bis Zwölf sind nach Muskelgruppen geordnet mit detaillierten farbigen Illustrationen jedes wichtigen Skelettmuskels. Zusätzlich bespricht der angesehene Osteopath Simeon Niel-Asher die physiologischen Auswirkungen der Triggerpunkte auf jeden Muskel – einschließlich entsprechender Behandlungs-methoden – und nennt die häufigsten Schmerzen wie Kopfschmerz, Nackenschmerz, Schulterschmerz sowie Beschwerden im unteren Rücken.

An understanding of acu-points is vital not only for acupuncturists but also for bodyworkers. This user-friendly manual contains current, comprehensive information for both groups, with special emphasis on how shiatsu and tuina therapists can best utilize “point knowledge” in their practice. Renowned experts Chris Jarmey and Ilaira Bouratinos use succinct text, a well-organized framework, and detailed color anatomical illustrations to clarify the complexities of acu-points. In keeping with normal practice, the authors give the precise anatomical location of a point and illustrate it with a dot, along with alternative locations where relevant. However, the book goes further by delineating the larger area where the point can be activated by pressure, gua sha, and other means. In addition, it explains the optimum physical position for treatment via acupuncture, acupressure, and other strategies, as treatment positions can vary according to the method of point stimulation. The book also documents the distribution of sensation resulting from point stimulation, and differentiates between pressure and needle application where appropriate. A Practical Guide to Acu-Points presents a wealth of carefully researched information equally valuable for professionals, students, and conscientious practitioners.

Most muscular aches and pains are caused or affected by untreated “trigger points,” localized tender spots in muscles. Understanding and treating these points can lead to rapid and lasting pain relief. Trigger point therapy is a powerful tool in the management of both acute and chronic pain, including such common problems as headaches, TMJ syndrome, and back pain. The Concise Book of Trigger Points has set the gold standard for providing a clear understanding of the treatment of trigger points. Designed for the student and practitioner of massage/bodywork, physical therapy, physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports therapy, and any other health-related field, it functions both as an entry-level textbook and an authoritative reference for even the most experienced therapist. This updated third edition includes new self-help and practitioner treatment guidelines for each muscle discussed, covering cutting-edge trigger point theory and practice. The opening chapters describe the basics of trigger points and include detailed therapeutic protocols. Chapters seven through twelve are organized by muscle groups, with detailed color illustrations of each major skeletal muscle. In addition, respected osteopath Simeon Niel-Asher discusses the physiological implications of the trigger points in each muscle—and techniques for treatment—and addresses the most common pain complaints, including headache, neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, and TMJ syndrome. This is a must-have manual for students, professional hands-on therapists, and those who wish to gain a greater knowledge of trigger point therapy. “This book wonderfully describes the syndromes of myofascial pain that affect the skeletal muscles. The text is clear, with detailed information about the presentation of syndromes in each body region, and the illustrations show the referred pain patterns clearly. Individuals suffering from myofascial pain will find it useful in understanding and managing their symptoms.” --Dr. Bob Gerwin, MD, FAAN Medical Director and President, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland “Simeon Niel-Asher has improved on an already wonderfully descriptive book on myofacial pain, trigger points, and syndromes. The text is clear, the diagrams excellent and the overall result is an excellent resource.” --Dr. Simon Vulfsons, MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Pain Management Director, the Institute for Pain Medicine, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel “This book is a must-have for manual therapists serious about their craft, as well as for serious self-treaters who want to take their level of understanding and treatment independence to a higher level. The book is extremely well organized, well written, and concise. The illustrations are beautiful and accurate.” --Jonathan Reynolds, Director, TOLA systems.

It is always reinforcing and rewarding for an author when the publisher of a book requests another edition. I have now had this pleasure fi ve times aft er the fi rst edition of this atlas was published 34 years ago in 1975. Previous editions, as well as this edition, have benefi ted greatly by the many suggestions from colleagues and especially students. Students oft en approach this in a thoughtful subtle manner. First, the student may say how much he or she has learned from the book and give praise to the nature and color of the fi gures and then point out a mistaken label in one of the fi gures that may not have caught my eye. Of course, I am always grateful for these suggestions. In this edition, I have added many new fi gures—for example, 14 new fi gures on 5 plates dealing with the brachial plexus. At the same time, a few fi gures that did not prove to be excellent teaching items have been removed. Perhaps the most important change in the book is the addition of a signifi cant number of X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasound scans. I am most grateful to Edward J. H. Nathanial, M.D., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor at the University of Winnipeg School of Medicine in Canada, for providing at least 15 fi gures of clinical signifi cance. Several fi gures also were contributed by Dr. G.L. Colborn, Emeritus Professor from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia. I have also had the pleasure of discussions with Dr. James D. Collins, Professor of Radiologic Sciences here at UCLA. I thank Dr. Constantine Karakousis, Professor of Surgery and Chief of Surgical Oncology at the University of Buff alo in Buff alo, New York, for the use of several of his fi gures and for comments on the clinical importance of several plates. Certain X-rays from Dr. Lothar Wicke’s 6th English edition of Atlas of Radiologic Anatomy, edited by Dr. Anna Taylor here at UCLA, were also used. Th ere are more than 200 plates of clinical importance in this atlas, and I have benefi ted greatly from my discussions and collaboration with Professor Gerald Buckberg, M.D., Professor of Cardiac Surgery here at UCLA, and the late Dr. F. Torrent Guasp from Madrid, Spain, on the progressive unfolding of cardiac muscle as shown in Plate 186. Th ese studies have given insightful information on the manner by which the heart muscle develops and matures. Most of the fi gures in this atlas come from the Sobotta atlases, recent editions of which have been published by Professor R. Putz in Munich, Germany, and Professor R. Pabst in Hanover, Germany. My deepest appreciation to these two brilliant anatomists knows no bounds. Th eir German editions of Sobotta have been recently reproduced as the 14th English Edition in 2006. A number of drawings, some of which were also used in the 5th edition, were made by a former resident artist here at UCLA, Ms. Jill Penkhus. I am most grateful for her artistic creativity. I am most indebted to the editors at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins in Baltimore, and especially to Ms. Crystal Taylor, with whom I have interacted for more than 20 years on several earlier editions of this atlas, and Ms. Julie Montalbano, the Product Manager of this edition. Here at UCLA, I am privileged to have worked with outstanding associates who form the gross anatomy faculty for both the medical and dental school at this university. Th ese include Dr. Shelley Metten, the Chairperson of the Anatomy Division, and Drs. Robert Trelease, Richard Braun, Joseph Miller, Elena Stark, Yau Shi Lin, Jonathan Wisco, Quynh Pham, Guido Zampighi, David Hovda, Anna Taylor, Robin Fisher, Charles Olmstead, Francesco Chiappelli, and Jayc Sedlmayr. Dr. Sedlmayr is now on the faculty of the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. In my 57 years of active teaching here at UCLA, collectively, these anatomists are the fi nest anatomy colleagues I have ever worked with. Finally, but by no means least, I must say that my wife, Julie, has been a steadfast inspiration to me and my academic life, and I am eternally grateful to her. Carmine D. Clemente Los Angeles, California—October 2009
