Overview

With Structure and Function of the Musculoskeletal System, respected functional anatomy authority James Watkins delivers the first book that integrates anatomy and biomechanics to describe the intimate relationship between structure and function.

Drawing from his 23 years of international teaching and research experience, Dr. Watkins creates a unique text that thoroughly explores the biomechanical characteristics of musculoskeletal components and the response and adaptation of these components to the physical stress imposed by everyday activities.

In Part I, Dr. Watkins develops the concept of the musculoskeletal system as a machine capable of generating and transmitting forces. Part II examines the functional anatomy of the muscular and skeletal systems, while Part III addresses musculoskeletal response and adaptation to loading.

Structure and Function of the Musculoskeletal System presents:

-(mechanical concepts and principles that underlie human movement and the basic structure and function of the musculoskeletal system;

-functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system featuring chapters on the skeleton, connective tissues, the articular system, joints of the axial skeleton, joints of the appendicular skeleton, the neuromuscular system, and forces in muscles and joints;

-mechanical characteristics of musculoskeletal components;

-structural adaptation of the musculoskeletal system; and

-etiology of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.
The information contained in this book is essential for students and practitioners interested in understanding the workings of a healthy musculoskeletal system.
This book uses an open learning model, featuring chapter overviews, key terms, and learning objectives. The book is also packed with excellent illustrations, diagrams, and conceptual models. Students new to anatomy or biomechanics will benefit from the book's reader-friendly structure featuring an instructive glossary that runs parallel to the text and its use of applied examples, summaries, review questions, references, and an extensive subject index.

The book contains two-color illustrations.

AUDIENCES Course text for undergraduate students of kinesiology, exercise science, sport science, athletic training, and physical education, and a resource for those studying physical therapy, occupational therapy, and podiatric medicine.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jan A. Ryberg, MA, PT (University of Texas El Paso College of Health Sciences)
Description: This excellent introductory text reviews the principles of biomechanics, kinesiology, and functional anatomy as they relate to the movement of the human body.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to develop the student's understanding of the relationship between the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system. This objective is met through a well structured and clearly written text.
Audience: The author has published over 70 journal articles and four books in this area. He is also an advisory board member for two prestigious physical education journals. He has written this text primarily for undergraduate students in kinesiology, exercise science, sports science, and physical education. Students in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and podiatry will also find it useful.
Features: It is my opinion that the author has written an excellent introductory text. It is legibly written with extensive use of illustrations, conceptual models, and review questions to provide clarity.
Assessment: This text would be an excellent addition to the library of any health professional interested in exercise science or injury prevention. It is a nice adjunct to Enoka's Neuromechanical Basis of Kinesiology, 2nd Edition (Human Kinetics, Inc., 1994) and Norkin's Joint Structure and Function: A Comprehensive Analysis (FA Davis, 1992).
