This complete, full-color atlas of bones and joints contains over 700 illustrations and explains how muscles function as movers, antagonists, and stabilizers so readers will truly understand how muscles function in the human body. It includes the bones, landmarks, and joints, as well as an introduction to the basics of how muscles function (beginning kinesiology). It also provides clinical applications related to the kinesiology concepts presented and includes an explanation of anatomical and physiological terminology that is needed for work in the musculoskeletal field. Finally, this book covers microanatomy and microphysiology, such as the sliding filament theory and the structure and function of fascia. Clinical applications throughout the text, as they relate to the kinesiology concepts covered, enable students to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to clinical practice. Over 100 full-color photographs of every bone in the human body gives readers comprehensive coverage of bones not found in other kinesiology books. Clear, full-color line drawings that highlight each topic in the overview of the human body, joints of the human body, and muscle function parts. Thorough coverage of joints in six chapters that provide information on structure, function, terminology, and specific illustrations on each joint in the human body: joints of the axial body, joints of the upper extremity, and joints of the lower extremity. Includes an explanation of anatomical and physiological terminology that is needed for work in the musculoskeletal field.
