Overview

In the first book of its kind, noted biomechanists William Whiting and Ronald Zernicke explore the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury to better understand causal mechanisms, the effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and how our current knowledge of biomechanics can contribute to injury prevention.

Never before has the broad spectrum of injury mechanics been covered so completely in a single book. From introductory biomechanics to detailed examinations of the mechanical aspects of common injuries, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury provides a solid foundation for in-depth study. The book includes comprehensive information on
-the basic biomechanical concepts of force, stress and strain, stiffness, and elasticity;

-the mechanics of joints that are subject to disabling injury;

-the structure of connective tissues (bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments), which are most often involved in musculoskeletal injuries; and

-factors such as age, gender, nutrition, and exercise, which affect the musculoskeletal system's response to force.
After providing the reader with a fundamental understanding of tissue structure and function, the authors then proceed with detailed explorations of the mechanisms of common injuries, including
-inversion ankle sprains, stress fractures, and other lower-extremity injuries;

-rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other injuries to the upper extremities; and

-concussions, intervertebral disc injuries, and other injuries that afflict the head, neck, and trunk.
Packed with more than 300 drawings, photos, and tables, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury is both visually compelling and indispensable as a reference on injury mechanisms.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Mark D. Grabiner, PhD (Cleveland Clinic Foundation)
Description: By introducing the student to the mechanical factors underlying musculoskeletal injury, this book provides a framework by which injury prevention may be studied.
Purpose: The stated purposes are to "explore the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury... to better understand the mechanisms involved in causing the injury, the effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and ... how injury might be prevented." These are worthy objectives that the authors have achieved.
Audience: While the book is directed toward undergraduate students in kinesiology, physical therapy, and athletic training, in my opinion, it may have broader appeal. The authors' authoritative knowledge in this area derives from their combined teaching and research experiences over the past two decades.
Features: The eight chapters are firmly anchored to musculoskeletal injuries. The reader is first introduced to the musculoskeletal tissues, biomechanical concepts necessary to describe injury mechanisms, strength of materials, and biomechanical modeling. This information is then used to describe the acute responses and chronic adaptations of lower and upper extremity, head, neck, and trunk tissues to loading, and a broad range of injuries are discussed. The recommended reading list and a reference list found at the end of each chapter may serve as points of departure for the pursuit of more detailed information on the topics. The text is well-populated with clear illustrations.
Assessment: This is a fresh and welcome addition to the currently available basic biomechanics textbooks. Its unswerving focus on musculoskeletal injury is unique in comparison to a genre of biomechanics textbooks generally leaning toward broader human movement applications. This text should find a spot in personal libraries of those interested in a basic introduction to the topic, those developing and/or teaching a course on musculoskeletal injury, or those teaching a broader course looking for a specialized secondary text.

William C. Whiting, PhD, is director of the Biomechanics Laboratory and assistant professor of kinesiology at California State University, Northridge. Dr. Whiting earned his PhD in kinesiology at UCLA. He has taught courses in biomechanics for more than 10 years, and has published 25 articles and 20 research abstracts.

Dr. Whiting currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, and he has served as a reviewer for a number of other scholarly journals. Dr. Whiting is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and a member of the American Society of Biomechanics; the International Society of Biomechanics; the National Strength and Conditioning Association; and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.

Dr. Whiting has coached basketball and volleyball at the interscholastic and intercollegiate levels for 20 years and received a basketball Coach of the Year award in 1992 from the Southern California Community Newspapers. Dr. Whiting enjoys reading, camping, and hiking. He lives in Glendale, California.

Ronald F. Zernicke, PhD, has taught courses in biomechanics and injury mechanisms at the university level for more than 25 years. He is the Wood Professor for Joint Injury Research at the University of Calgary, where he holds appointments in the departments of surgery (division of orthopaedics), mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and kinesiology. He also chairs the Joint Injury and Arthritis Research Group.

Dr. Zernicke has published more than 120 research papers, 145 research abstracts, and one other book. He has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Motor Behavior, The Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, The Journal of Biomechanics, and the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, a charter member and former president of the International Society of Biomechanics, and a member and former president of the American Society of Biomechanics. Dr. Zernicke is also a member of the Canadian Society of Biomechanics, the Orthopaedic Research Society, and the Society for Neuroscience.

Dr. Zernicke lives in Calgary, Alberta, with his wife, Kathleen, and twins, Kristin and Eric. In his leisure time he enjoys reading, hiking, and cross-country skiing.
