Hey everyone, I'm looking for a "gold-mine" type website such as exrx but for physiotherapy. Any quality books would be great too.

I'm heading back to the gym today but I'm looking for a good site/book that has a lot of excersizes for strengthening/stretching specific muscles before I start a rigorous routine.

Thanks.

Okay, sounds conflicting. You want physiotherapy information, but then again you want to find just basic human anatomy and biomechanics? What?

Frederic Delavier has a book called Strength training Anatomy. That is the best source for what you want. With awesome pictures and flawless and clear anatomy. EliteFTS has a great exercise index, check that. http://train.elitefts.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For physiotherapeutic side and still muscle anatomy, I'd recommend Anatomy Trains by T. Myers. An awesome book about the soft-tissue network our body utilizes on our every move.

These guys are probably the best/most well known physiotherapists that deal with the athletic and strength populations, and have authored books or video seminars.

Additionally Minnesota State University has a Student Practical Assessment Teaching Aid website that includes an enormous amount of data on orthopaedic testing. Note that orthopaedic tests are only useful if you have the clinical experience to develop a sensitivity (IE you are a paramedical or medical practitioner) and are of limited use to anyone else.
