Building on its reputation as the essential text for those studying human movement, the 5th edition of Human Movement retains the straight-talking style which has become popular with its readers.
The authors cover the anatomical, physical and biomechanical basis for understanding human movement in everyday contexts with easy-to-follow text that is both detailed and well referenced.
Basic concepts and different approaches are covered in earlier chapters with application to regions of the body covered later in the text. Each chapter has been updated, new contributors introduced and new research integrated where appropriate. More case studies, textboxes and examples have been included relating biomechanic principles to the movement and function of human beings in their daily lives and environment.
· Basic biomechanic concepts and their applications described
· Scientific theory related to movement
· Case studies, textboxes and examples included
· Updated references and many new illustrations

An ideal resource for understanding and assessing normal human movement.Review:
“It is a perfect introduction to some of the core aspects of physiotherapy....To put it simply, we get coverage of the basic subjects here in fifteen well organised and easy to follow chapters, including everything you would expect to find regarding gravity, forces and levers, muscles and joint motion....This book seems ideal for students and would be valid from day one. It is, in fact, exactly what it says on the cover: an introductory text to human movement, and a thoroughly good one at that.
