Instructor Resources This Second Edition relates the most current understanding of anatomy and mechanics with clinical practice concerns. Featuring seven chapters devoted to biomechanics, straightforward writing, and over beautiful illustrations, the text provides detailed coverage of the structure, function and kinesiology of each body region.
Readers will gain an in-depth understanding of the relationship between the quality of movement and overall human health. Features include: Student resources found on the student area of this site including an electronic version of the text, a Student Lab Manual and video clips of real-life patient examples.
All videos also available on DVD packaged with the book. Clinical Relevance Boxes that reinforce the relationship of biomechanical principles to patient care through real-life case studies. Examining the Forces Boxes that highlight the advanced mathematical concepts used to determine forces on joint structure. Evidence-based presentations of each chapter guarantee that the most current literature and essential classic studies are the basis for your course.
