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.

Instructors: There are free online instructor and student resources on the book’s companion Website. For more information and to request your review copy, click here.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Chris Hughes, PT, PhD, OCS, CSCS (Slippery Rock University)
Description: This is one of the newest books in the field to address the topic of kinesiology for the healthcare professional. Mechanics and pathomechanics of each major region of the body are discussed in a unique compilation.
Purpose: The author's purpose is to provide a functional approach to the study of musculoskeletal structure. The author has also sought to enlighten the reader on understanding forces that are sustained during movement. Both objectives are admirable and the author has succeeded in accomplishing them.
Audience: The book is written primarily for physical therapy students, but the information would also be beneficial for students in other health professions such as occupational therapy, athletic training, and exercise science. The author and contributors are all highly qualified. The contributors have academic positions at various universities.
Features: The material is divided into five major divisions. Biomechanical principles are presented first with subsequent topics covering kinesiology of the upper extremity, head and spine, lower extremity, with the remaining section covering posture and gait. Seven chapters discuss in clear detail the biomechanics of contractile and non-contractile elements of the musculoskeletal system. Excellent figures accompany the text and concepts are clearly explained. Clinical examples appear throughout this section to help the reader integrate the mechanical concepts. The other major divisions are consistent in format, with the authors describing muscle and joint structure for each region followed by an application to the mechanics and pathomechanics of motion. Again, clinical examples occur throughout in the form of highlighted text and photos. Unique sections of the book include chapters on the kinesiology of swallowing, temporomandibular joint function, and muscle activity of the pelvic floor. Summary tables for describing muscle origin, insertion, and actions are not included, but this does not lead to a sacrifice in content as author's main concern is to emphasize function and not the didactic learning of anatomy.
Assessment: This book offers a fresh and unique approach to learning kinesiology. The material compares favorably to the commonly used book, Joint Structure and Function: A Comprehensive Analysis, 3rd Edition by Levangie and Norkin (F.A. Davis 2001) and rivals a recently published book by Neumann, Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System (Elsevier Science Publishing, 2002). The content is a nice balance between biomechanics and kinesiological concepts. Overall, this work represents a job well done and the authors have done a nice job presenting such a large body of information in a very readable format. I highly recommend it as a class text and as a reference for practicing professionals in the field.
