Overview

Kinesiology is a comprehensive textbook on kinesiology, or the study of movement. Chapters are organized by body region, and each includes a review of functional anatomy and biomechanics, with application and discussion of locomotion and pathokinesiology. Designed for physical therapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, and any other area that studies kinesiology.

Now every copy of Carol A. Oatis's Kinesiology: The Mechanics and Pathomechanics of Human Movement is packaged with a new three-dimensional anatomy CD-ROM from Primal Pictures.
