Abstract:

This text continues the Brunnstrom approach to kinesiology, dempahsizing unncessary computation and focusing on clinical application. It links theoretical concepts to their practical applications with Practice Points boxes ; Examines the properties of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and fascia ; Emphasizes the kinesiologic issue best illustrated for each region of the body ; Discusses joints, ligaments, end-feels, accessory joint motion, the innervation and anatomical actions of muscles, and applications of mechanical and physiological principles. It contains clinical applications and exercises including applications for sport, exercise, activities of daily living, leisure, and rehabilitation, as well as clinical scenarios with solutions.
