Over the past 22 years, Anatomy and Human Movement has grown into a classic textbook, helping students to understand and remember the mechanisms which allow movement to take place. Now in its sixth edition, the approach remains the same – each section of the body is presented systematically where readers are introduced to the bones, then guided through the muscles, joints , nervous system and blood supply. Anatomy of the musculoskeletal system is brought to life through simple full colour artwork following a colour key for clarity and accuracy.

    • Detailed account of anatomy
    • Stresses relationship between structure and function
    • Summary Boxes used for quick revision aids or general overviews
    • Over 800 full colour line drawings
    • Over 50 photographs (including radiographs)
    • Stimulates understanding and learning of anatomy and application to human movement
    • Improved and new artwork
    • Radiographs
    • Expansion of joint replacement sections
