Surface palpation is a valuable method for clinicians in detecting and treating a variety of injuries and medical conditions. A Clinical Guide to Surface Palpation, Second Edition With HKPropel Online Video, is a comprehensive guide that will help both students and health care professionals become proficient in these techniques so they can successfully assess and treat their patients.

Using a simple step-by-step approach, A Clinical Guide to Surface Palpation, Second Edition, provides concise explanations of palpation techniques, organized by regions of the body. A brief overview of skeletal and muscle anatomy is offered for each region—including coverage of bony tissue, soft tissue, and neurovascular structures—to facilitate a better understanding of the relationship between structures and how they function together, leading to improved clinical examination skills. Tips for palpating bony landmarks are also discussed.

Formerly titled A Clinical Guide to Musculoskeletal Palpation, this second edition has been expanded to include information on visceral palpation. One of very few textbooks that teaches readers how to examine the abdomen and pelvis, it recognizes the profound effect these structures can have on the function of the neuromuscular system.

The visual aspect of the second edition has also been significantly upgraded. Anatomical overlays have been added to the numerous photos depicting proper technique to provide a clear view of the exact structures lying beneath the surface. More than 50 related online video clips, delivered through HKPropel, have also been added to showcase real demonstrations of common clinical palpation techniques. The skills are demonstrated in a step-by-step format to help readers understand the nuances of difficult techniques.

This text also includes several learning aids to enhance anatomical knowledge and clinical skills. Clinical Pearls and notes throughout the text offer clinically relevant guidance alongside information on body structure identification and assessment. Each chapter concludes with a case study presenting a common clinical condition as well as review questions that prompt readers to apply their new understanding and proficiency.

The most comprehensive resource of its kind, A Clinical Guide to Surface Palpation, Second Edition, fosters a strong foundation in anatomical knowledge to optimize the development and execution of palpation skills. It is a must-have for all practitioners, instructors, and students in the manual therapy professions.
