This entire web site developed from my interest in anatomy. I am a physical therapist with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. These tables were a way for me to consolidate a lot of information down onto single sheets of paper for review and study purposes. The tables have been placed on the Internet in PDF format as a service to the Internet community.

Trouble Shooting Help:

PDF files allow universal, cross platform file viewing and printing, with viewers that are distributed for free. The key to the whole process is that you need to download and install the free viewer before you will be able to see the tables. It actually is rather easy. Visit the Adobe web site, and select the "Acrobat" viewer for your computer. (Note there are also very detailed instructions on the Adobe web site that will also help you if you have problems getting the viewer to work.)

Once you select the Acrobat PDF viewer for your type of computer, and have downloaded it, you will have to install it. On Windows computers, you will have to "Run" the file to get it to install. Some versions may require you to then run a setup.exe file to finish the final stages of the install. Once the PDF viewer has been installed, reboot your computer and then you should be able to select the PDF link above, and see the tables.

Note: If a window pops up from your browser which reads Unknown File Type and/or No Viewer Configured, and you have installed and setup the viewer, then this means that you simply need to let your browser know where the viewer is when it retrieves a PDF file. In Netscape, you can go to Options, General Preferences, and then Helpers to set it up correctly.
