“I was a very good examiner, diagnostician and provided very good care to my patients and students. However, since I have purchased your book by curiosity, I have been better at what I do, and your manuals have become excellent tools to my practice. So thank you for the effort and excellent work and I will continue to support you!”

Dr. Viet Nguyen

“This book is the gold standard for practical muscle anatomy; with current evidence based information & phenomenal illustrations it has everything I need.”

“Wish I had all of these books when I was in school, classes would have been so much easier. They are a great reference for the chiropractic board exams.”

John Urbanski DC, DCFirst.com

“Dr. Nik! Last night the fire alarm went off. [We] rushed outside with a few belongings. Thankfully the fire was contained to the underground parking but we realized where our priorities lay. When there’s a fire, you grab what’s most important.”
