The Routledge Handbook of Biomechanics and Human Movement Science is a landmark work of reference. Now available in a concise paperback edition, it offers a comprehensive and in-depth survey of current theory, research and practice in sports, exercise and clinical biomechanics, in both established and emerging contexts.

Including contributions from many of the world's leading biomechanists, the book is arranged into five thematic sections:

  • Biomechanics In Sports
  • Injury, Orthopedics And Rehabilitation
  • Health And Rehabilitation
  • Training, Learning And Coaching
  • Methodologies And Systems Of Measurement.

Drawing explicit connections between the theoretical, investigative and applied components of sports science research, this book is both a definitive subject guide and an important contribution to the contemporary research agenda in biomechanics and human movement science. It is essential reading for all students, scholars and researchers working in sports biomechanics, kinesiology, ergonomics, sports engineering, orthopaedics and physical therapy.
