Kinesiology for Occupational Therapy, Volume 1

Front Cover
Slack, 2004 - Medical - 252 pages

Kinesiology for Occupational Therapy helps occupational therapists manage each step of the kinesiology continuum from problem identification of client musculoskeletal factors to the final stage of selecting appropriate intervention strategies.

To help bridge the gap from classroom to clients, a comprehensive analysis of normal human movement is included. Read specific explanations of how movements are produced at specific joints throughout the body. By enhancing your understanding of normal movement, you will be better prepared to detect and measure deficiencies in occupational performance. Assessment procedures are included so that movement can be properly evaluated and measured.

Kinesiology for Occupational Therapy continues by concentrating on the ways occupational therapists can remediate client factor deficits. Because clients are seen due to limitations in movement, theory-based intervention strategies are presented along with principles of treatment. Case studies are utilized to help assess and compare intervention strategies in a variety of situations.
