A comprehensive textbook that teaches entry level biomechanical principles, and then links those principles to the structure, function and kinesiology of each body region. Clinically relevant information is included throughout, which allows students to relate what is learned to clinical practice.

FEATURES:

  • Special pedagogical elements include Muscle Attachment boxes and Clinical Reference sections
  • Examining the Forces boxes cover mathematical analysis used to determine forces on joint structure
  • Includes subject areas never before included in a kinesiology text – swallowing, vocalisation and pelvic floor function
