The anatomy of the viscera is often neglected in many paramedical training. Like the rest of the anatomy, it comes up against a relatively arid descriptive pedagogy with a memorization based on a 'by heart' quickly discouraging good intentions. This is even more true for the study of the viscera organs and topographic regions of the head, neck and trunk for which the student is not prepared. A good understanding of these anatomical structures is however essential for the daily activity of physiotherapists._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d

The objective of this work is therefore to extend the achievements of the musculoskeletal system (Anatomy of the musculoskeletal system: volumes 1 2 and 3) by addressing the organs and viscera on the same model of presentation with systematized and synoptic tables, each illustrated with one or more explanatory diagrams. This structure thus offers a complete reading of the head, neck and trunk:

  • Head organs  
  • Neck organs  
  • Organs of the thorax  
  • Organs of the abdomen  
  • Neurovascular bundles  
  • Topographic regions  

L'iconographie originale tout en couleurs répond au même souci de clarté de simplicité et de vision spatiale. _cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

The student can therefore easily enter knowledge stripped to the maximum of their complexity without falling into popularization focused on the essentials and documented._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ 

The practitioner more especially that of manual therapy to whom this work is intended little familiarized with this field will find there an understandable background and able to direct it in the approach of these particular areas. -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

This new, fully updated edition offers the reader ever more precise and relevant information and an optimal match between the text and the figures. The self-assessment part has been enriched with chrono-QROC  

original and unique elaboration of answers organized according to time.
