Make it easy for students to apply kinesiology concepts to the treatment of dysfunction with Muscolino’s Kinesiology: The Skeletal System and Muscle Function, 3rd Edition! With more than 1,200 full-color illustrations, this highly visual text gives students an unrivaled look at how muscles function as movers, antagonists, and stabilizers in the body. Part One in the text covers essential terminology that is used in kinesiology. Part Two covers the skeletal system including the makeup of skeletal and fascial tissues. Part Three contains a detailed study of the joints of the body. And lastly, Part Four examines how muscles function. This new edition also boasts a new chapter on biomechanics, a robust companion Evolve site with over 100 online video clips and an interactive muscle program. If you want to help your students understand muscle function and how to apply that knowledge to the clinical environment, then there’s no better guide than Muscolino!
