Anatomy books

The scholars argue, which is the best anatomy book. We also cannot answer this question. One thing is certain: anatomy books need all those who are training as a physiotherapist or osteopath. You will learn anatomy, physiology and pathology in your physiotherapy or osteopathy training and need the right tools.

Here we especially recommend the book by Gilroy, A.M./ Wesker, K. H., Atlas of Anatomy

3rd edition, Latin Nomenclature. This atlas of Anatomy, in the third Edition, is the highest quality anatomy atlas available today. With over 1,900 exquisitely detailed illustrations, the Atlas helps you master the details of human anatomy. An alternative would be Schünke, M./ Schulte, E./ Schumacher, U., Thieme Atlas of Anatomy, General Anatomy and Musculoskeletal System. ‘The Journal of the American Medical Association writes about this atlas of Anatomy that it is an impressive book with illustrations that are unique and should be considered as a real work of art.

In terms of a moving body we recommend Dimon, T., Anatomy of the Moving Body. This basic course in bones, muscles, and joints discusses the major functional systems such as the pelvis, ankle, shoulder girdle, and hand and structures relating to breathing and vocalization.
