1 Reseña

This is the first comprehensive reference to address the basic science of proprioception and neuromuscular control. Drawn from the research of internationally respected authorities and spanning several disciplines, this is the one book you need in order to learn the status of scientifically supported knowledge regarding proprioception and its role in motor control and joint stability.

This is your best resource for
-reviewing the structure and function of the sensorimotor system,

-gaining insight into the neuromuscular system as it relates to joint stability and proprioception, and

-developing rehabilitation programs aimed at correcting neuromuscular control and proprioception problems.
Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stabilitydraws from the work of renowned experts in the fields of orthopaedic surgery, biomechanics, physiology, athletic training, physical therapy, and engineering. It presents specific content and management strategies related to knee, shoulder, and ankle injuries.

Based on the proceedings of a conference conducted by the Foundation for Sports Medicine Education and Research/American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, this reference explores directions for future research and clinical protocols.

Divided into four sections, the reference first examines the contribution of the sensorimotor system to joint stability in Section I. Section IIexamines the effects of ligament injury on proprioception and neuromuscular control. Section IIIidentifies special issues related to proprioception and neuromuscular control, while Section IVpresents the role of rehabilitation in reestablishing proprioception and neuromuscular control.

Proprioception and Neuromuscular Control in Joint Stabilityoffers a unified and inclusive body of knowledge regarding proprioception and serves as a valued guide for directing future research and clinical applications.

Sobre el autor (2000)

Scott M. Lephart, PhD,associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh, is director of the internationally recognized Neuromuscular Research Laboratory, one of the first clinical research laboratories dedicated to sports medicine.

Dr. Lephart received the Inaugural New Investigator Award from the National Athletic Trainers' Association Research (NATA) and Education Foundation in 1998. In 1994, he received the Charles Neer Award for Outstanding Basic Science Research from the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society, the first nonorthopaedic surgeon to receive the honor. In 1999, he received the Distinguished Educator Award from the NATA.

Dr. Lephart is a Fellow with the American College of Sports Medicine and a member of the NATA. He has served as editor of the Journal of Sport Rehabilitationsince 1996.

He received his PhD in Sports Medicine from the University of Virginia in 1989.

Freddie H. Fu, MD, DSc(Hon.) is the David Silver Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in the School of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, an adjunct professor in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences and the School of Education, and the Head Team Physician for the university's athletic department.

Dr. Fu attained his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1977. He completed his general surgery internship at Brown University before returning to Pittsburgh to complete his residency and an orthopaedic research fellowship. He also completed an A.O. International Fellowship at the Hanover Trauma Center in Germany and at an arthroscopic surgery center in East Lansing, Michigan.

Dr. Fu's major research interests are clinical outcomes, biology, and biomechanics of the knee and shoulder in sport-related injuries. He has presented at numerous international and national conferences and has written textbooks, book chapters, and research publications. He is a member of and has held offices in several academic organizations, including the prestigious Herodicus Society, the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society, and the American Orthopaedic Association.

In 1997, he was elected to the Inaugural Executive Board of the International Cartilage Repair Society. He is a corecipient of the Kappa Delta award for his shoulder research and a recipient of the Presidential Challenge Award from the NATA for significant contributions in athletic training.
