Overview

While clinicians today are trained in gross musculoskeletal anatomy, solid clinical evaluations demand a thorough knowledge of functional anatomy as well. The Illustrated Guide to Functional Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System provides the groundwork you need to truly understand musculoskeletal function, the basis of all biomechanics. This outstanding guide will give you an important base knowledge of normal musculoskeletal function and how deviations are caused, helping you determine the most appropriate clinical diagnoses and treatments for your patients. Combining easy-to-read text with numerous quick-reference tables and clear illustrations, The Illustrated Guide to Functional Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System logically covers both regional and systemic function. Chapters are organized by each segment of the musculoskeletal system for easy reference, presenting anatomical material that analyzes everyday activities and associated movements. Informative illustrations further deepen your knowledge of each musculoskeletal segment's function and how to clinically diagnose impairment. For years, clinical understanding of impaired function has been based on neuromuscular dysfunction with resultant pain. The Guide now helps you examine impaired neuromusculoskeletal activity more meaningfully by grounding it in functional anatomy. This is an outstanding primer for medical clinicians, medical students, residents, reimbursement coding staff, and other musculoskeletal allied health disciplines. Containing over 400 art pieces, this highly illustrated text is a primer for the medical clinician that logically blends regional and systemic coverage of anatomy for a complete overview of the subject.
