Description

Anatomy and Human Movement: Structure and Function describes the musculoskeletal structures of the human body and the biomechanics behind their movements. The book provides anatomical descriptions of bone and muscle groups with emphasis on the joints; enumeration of common traumatic or pathological problems affecting the musculoskeletal structures; and the use of palpation through intact skin to describe the structures, as well as how movements can be tested and analyzed with respect to joint movement, muscle work and function. Chapters on embryology; the skin and its appendages; terminologies used in the book; and an account of the structure and function of the nervous system are included as well. Students of anatomy will find the text a valuable reference material.
