Basic concepts and different approaches are covered in earlier chapters and their application to regions of the body are covered in later chapters. 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. Those involved in the study of human movement will find this an ideal introduction to the study of human movement and an excellent reference encouraging and directing further study.

Book Description:

An ideal resource for understanding and assessing normal human movement.


“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.
