With its focus on the normal and abnormal mechanical interactions between the muscles and joints of the body, Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System: Foundations for Rehabilitation, 3rd Edition provides a foundation for the practice of physical rehabilitation. This comprehensive, research-based core text presents kinesiology as it relates to physical rehabilitation in a clinically relevant and accessible manner. It provides students and clinicians with the language of human movement — and acts as a bridge between basic science and clinical management. Full-color anatomic and kinesiologic illustrations clearly demonstrate the anatomy, functional movement, and biomechanical principles underlying movement; and dynamic new video clips help you interpret new concepts with visual demonstration.

    • More than 900 high-quality illustrations provide you with the visual accompaniments you need to comprehend the material.
    • Clinical Connections boxes at the end of each chapter in Sections II through IV highlight or expand upon a particular clinical concept associated with the kinesiology covered in the chapter.
    • Special Focus boxes interspersed throughout the text provide numerous clinical examples that demonstrate why kinesiologic information is needed.
    • Critical thinking questions challenge you to review or reinforce the main concepts contained within each chapter.
    • Evidence-based approach emphasizes the importance of research in physical therapy decision-making.
    • Evolve site for students comes with video clips, answers to study questions, and references linked to Medline.
    • Evolve site for instructors includes an image collection from the text, teaching tips, and lab activities.
    • NEW! Kinesiology of Running chapter covers the biomechanics of running.
    • NEW! Video clips help you interpret new concepts with visual demonstration.
    • NEW! All-new content on the pelvic floor.
    • NEW! Thoroughly updated references emphasize the evidence-based presentation of information in the text.
    • NEW! QR codes linked to videos for easy viewing on mobile devices.
    • NEW! Pageburst enhanced edition allows you to access multimedia content from the eBook without going to another website.
