Overview

This exceptional new text is perfect for any course that describes and explains movement. Kinesiology for Occupational Therapy provides an in-depth explanation of normal movement, measurement of movement, and theory-based intervention strategies for remediation of adaptation to limitations in occupational performance. This text provides a comprehensive analysis of normal human movement and provides specific explanations of how movements are produced at specific joints throughout the body. Assessment procedures are included so that movement can be measured. Because clients are seen due to limitations in movement, theory-based intervention strategies are provided with principles of treatment explained in detail. Anatomy, biomechanics, and OT assessment and intervention are discussed. Features: Bridges gap from classroom to clients. Provides OT theory and explanations of intervention principles and goals. Consists of multiple illustrations and examples to help understand basic physics, biomechanics, and kinesiology concepts. Includes charts clarifying movements in the human body to help students use correct terminology. Includes clear images and descriptions of skeletal landmarks to help link anatomy to living people.
