Kinesiology : the skeletal system and muscle function / Joseph E. Muscolino.

By: Muscolino, Joseph E.
Material type: TextTextPublisher: St. Louis, Mo. : Mosby Elsevier, c2006Description: xviii, 684 p. : ill. ; 28 cm.ISBN: 0323025242; 9780323025249.Subject(s): KinesiologyAdditional physical formats: Online version:: Kinesiology.DDC classification: 612.7/6 Other classification: 44.83
Contents:
Pt. I. Fundamentals of structure and motion of the human body. Parts of the human body -- Mapping the human body -- Pt. II. Skeletal osteology (study of the bones). Skeletal tissues -- Bones of the skeleton -- Pt. III. Skeletal arthrology (study of the joints). Joint action terminology -- Classification of joints -- Joints of the axial body -- Joints of the lower extremity -- Joints of the upper extremity -- Pt. IV. Myology (study of the muscular system). Anatomy and physiology of muscle tissue -- How muscles function - the big picture -- Types of muscle contractions -- Roles of muscles -- Types of joint motion and musculoskeletal assessment -- Detemining the force of a muscle contraction -- The neuromuscular system -- Posture, exercise, and the gait cycle.
Review: "Vividly illustrated throughout with colorful, atlas-quality images, Kinesiology: The Skeletal System and Muscle Function explores the bones, landmarks, and joints of the body, and presents a thorough explanation of muscle function. It provides clinical applications related to key kinesiology concepts and clearly explains anatomic and physiologic terminology needed for working in any rehabilitative practice field. This one-of-a-kind resource also covers microanatomy and microphysiology, such as the sliding filament mechanism and the structure and function of fascia. Ideal as an in-class text as well as a reference manual!"--BOOK JACKET.
