Biomechanics Of Musculoskeletal Injury

Whiting, William C. PhD. Explores the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury, effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and how our current knowledge can prevent injury. Includes halftone drawings, photographs, and tables. For practitioners and undergraduate students. Book News: Whiting (biomechanics, California State U. at Northridge, and physiological science, UCLA) and Zernicke (kinesiology, U. of Michigan) explain the biomedical principles of musculoskeletal injury and how injuries affect the normal function of muscles, connective tissue, and joints. The volume is aimed at undergraduate students in exercise science, kinesiology, human movement studies, physical education, biomechanics, physical or occupational therapy, and athletic training, or for practitioners in orthopedics, rheumatology, physical or occupational therapy, chiropractic medicine, ergonomics, and health and safety science. This edition contains more illustrations, new research and updated statistics, more emphasis on lifestyle issues and a life-span approach, new topics and technologies, and updated figures. It also expands on the link between the basic mechanical properties of tissues and their clinical application and explores more about applied topics such as ergonomics and osteoporosis. New sections feature topics such as falls of the elderly, throwing-related rotator cuff pathologies, whiplash-related disorders, and injuries young people incur from carrying backpacks. A glossary and study questions have been added.
