Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury, Volume 10
In the first book of its kind, noted biomechanists William Whiting and Ronald Zernicke explore the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury to better understand causal mechanisms, the effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and how our current knowledge of biomechanics can contribute to injury prevention.
Never before has the broad spectrum of injury mechanics been covered so completely in a single book. From introductory biomechanics to detailed examinations of the mechanical aspects of common injuries, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injuryprovides a solid foundation for in-depth study. The book includes comprehensive information on
-the mechanics of joints that are subject to disabling injury;
-the structure of connective tissues (bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments), which are most often involved in musculoskeletal injuries; and
-factors such as age, gender, nutrition, and exercise, which affect the musculoskeletal system's response to force.
-rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other injuries to the upper extremities; and
-concussions, intervertebral disc injuries, and other injuries that afflict the head, neck, and trunk.
