This book has been replaced by the new edition Muscle Manual.
The quick reference evidence informed Muscle Manual is designed as a quick reference guide for health care students, therapist, practitioners, doctors & instructors, and as a companion to the Physical Assessment Manual, Orthopedic Conditions Manual and Physical Medicine Manual.
This text bridges the gap between classroom education and practical clinical application. It contains current, easily accessible information on topics including musculoskeletal anatomy, anatomical variation, kinesiology, muscle testing, palpation, osteology, biomechanics, trigger point referral patterns, peripheral neurology, differential diagnosis, treatment techniques and much more. Video content available via Prohealthsys Central.
Please note that the video shows the previous edition of the Muscle Manual. When you order, you will get the latest 2020 version.
The Muscle Manual is the most useful of any of Travell’s Trigger Point Manual, Kendell’s Muscle Testing, Musculino’s Muscle System, Biel’s Trail Guide to the Body, and any Anatomy & Physiology text, all wrapped up in one parcel.
By using the Professional Health Systems Anatomy & Assessment series we have saved our students over $300 in textbook cost and hundreds of hours.
In addition, this text is a valuable study guide for students, therapists and doctors preparing for board exams, oral practical exams, objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE) and many other licensure examinations.

Students, Instructors and Practitioners ❤ Muscle Manual Textbook
With web-based video & more palpation, special/muscle tests and regional exam forms than Magee, Evans or Kendall there is no book or series that comes close to this phenomenal package – amazing – I love the hands-on CE seminars
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.
This text is the best of Gray, Travell, Kendall, Biel, Musculino & Tortora without all the excess fat – a lean mean educational machine.
This book easily makes the transition from the classroom to daily clinical practice – a book I use every day and worth its weight in gold.
Save Time, Save money and buy a book you will use in real life. If you work with the body you need this book, period!
