Summary

Summary

Created expressly for those who will work in physical activity fields, the thoroughly revised and updated edition of Kinetic Anatomy continues to address how anatomy affects movement-how the human body is constructed and how it moves-by discussing bones, tying the bones together to make articulations, placing muscles on the bones, and observing how the joints move when the muscles contract. In addition to retaining the best features from the first edition, the new edition of Kinetic Anatomy contains the following new features: Photos and images in a four-color format for easier visual recognition and comprehension, An instructor guide and test package that make it easier for instructors to deliver the course content to students, Additional summary tables that list articulations including type of joint, bones, ligaments, and movements, The Primal IFA Essentials CD bound into the book to provide users with a superior anatomical learning tool. The second edition of Kinetic Anatomy lays the foundation for students to learn how anatomy affects movement of the human body. Never before has learning anatomy been this easy. Kinetic Anatomy, Second Edition, is an outstanding introductory resource for those who plan to specialize in any field related to physical activity. Readers will be able to apply the knowledge from this resource as they work with, treat, and train the physically active. Book jacket.
