Musculoskeletal structure and function

This book integrates anatomy and biomechanics to describe the intimate relationship between the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system.

With the aid of nearly 700 detailed, full-color illustrations, this unique reference thoroughly explores the biomechanical characteristics of musculoskeletal components and examines the response and adaptation of these components to the physical stress imposed by everyday activities.

The second edition of Structure and Function of the Musculoskeletal System also includes new information on the effects of ageing on muscle function as well as a new appendix with illustrations of each muscle group and tables detailing the origin, insertion and action of individual muscles.

In addition, several new case studies illustrate the response and adaptation of the musculoskeletal system to exercise at various ages and in various situations.

These case studies present current research and how the findings can be put to practical use in physical activity, competitive sport, rehabilitation and the general activities of daily life.

It is recommended as an undergraduate-level text for students in sport science, kinesiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics and physiotherapy programmes and also a reference for graduate students and professionals in sport science.
