Created primarily for those who will work in physical activity fields, the third edition of Kinetic Anatomy continues to building on its previous editions to assert itself as the ideal resource for learning structural anatomy and how it affects movement. The text gives students a firm concept of musculoskeletal anatomy by systematically assembling each component of the human body. Layer by layer, readers will study bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles on the bones, as well as the nerves and blood vessels that supply these muscles that are essential for movement. Kinetic Anatomy, Third Edition, includes coverage of three major structures that are not often considered when studying the anatomy of movement: the brain, heart, and lungs. As the centerpieces for the nervous, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems, these structures are essential to human movement and are highlighted throughout the text where appropriate. In addition, other fundamental features make this resource a valuable tool for learning and teaching human anatomy: - A one-year subscription to Musculoskeletal Anatomy Review, an online anatomy program, provides an interactive forum for reviewing regional structural anatomy. - A new chapter on the head completes the regional approach followed in the text. - More information on muscle and motor units helps broaden information on movement potential in selected sport activities. - Expanded discussion on joint strength and movement and the function of muscles (agonists, antagonists, stabilizers, and synergists), levers, and exercise supports understanding of how the human body is constructed. - Full-color photos and illustrations enhance the learning experience. - New Functional Movement Exercises provide students with the opportunity for practical application of their studies by asking them to identify the prime mover, antagonist, fixator, and synergist muscle in a particular movement. - Hands On exercises throughout the book offer students practice in physically identifying anatomical structures on themselves or on a partner. Included with each new text is a key code allowing students one-year access to the online anatomy program Musculoskeletal Anatomy Review. This engaging supplement to the text offers a regional review of structural anatomy with exceptionally detailed, high-quality graphic images--the majority provided by Primal Pictures. Students can mouse over muscles and click for muscle identification, and each chapter features a pretest and posttest evaluation to help students pinpoint knowledge gaps and test their retention. The pretest can be taken multiple times and is generated randomly so it will never be the same, but the posttest may be taken only once. Test results can be printed and turned in so instructors have the option to use the tests as a grading tool. To further facilitate learning, each chapter in the book concludes with a review of the key terms referred to in the chapter, suggested learning activities, and review questions in multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank formats. The answers to the questions are provided at the end of the book. For instructors, a new image bank accompanies the updated instructor guide and test package to aid in delivering the course content. Kinetic Anatomy, Third Edition, is an outstanding introductory resource for those who plan to specialize in any field related to physical activity. Readers will learn what structures are involved in movement and how those structures should function, allowing them to identify problems and correct them to enhance physical activity.

In this enhanced e-book with integrated video, internationally recognized low back specialist Stuart McGill presents the research and applications of back anatomy and biomechanics to build effective prevention and rehabilitation programs for patients or clients. This third edition of Low Back Disorders contains all of the essential tools for those with low back maladies. Strong foundational information on anatomy and injury mechanisms guide users through the essential functions of the structures of the low back and related tissues, and common misconceptions about pain and discomfort are addressed and corrected. The enhanced version provides 17 fully integrated video to showcase various exercises for rehabilitation and strength, providing guidance and recommendations for individualized strategies. The text also contains detailed insights into injury assessment by an extensively expanded set of tests with accompanying instructions. In addition to offering strategies for relieving and potentially eliminating pain, the text provides insight into the conditions and environments that may initially cause back pain and makes recommendations on reducing these influences so that clients can be pain free. Alongside the instructive videos integrated directly into the content, this enhanced e-book contains more than 500 photos, graphs, and charts on anatomy, biomechanics, and assessments; 50 tests and exercises with step-by-step instructions are available to aid users in developing successful programs for patients and clients. In addition to the evidence-based foundation of this edition, the following enhancements have been made: Completely updated information and streamlined chapter organization ensure that practitioners use best clinical practices.Practical checklists throughout the enhanced e-book provide easy access to testing and assessment clinical techniques and information. Practical Applications boxes provide clinical information to aid users in understanding concepts and theory. Low Back Disorders, Third Edition (Enhanced Version), contains essential research and corresponding clinical applications in a clear and organized format. Part I introduces the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the lumbar spine. It also presents epidemiological studies on low back disorders and dispels common myths of lumbar spine stability. Part II reviews risk factors for low back disorders and common prevention methods, with specific attention paid to reducing workplace risk factors. Part III explains evaluating and diagnosing clients and developing exercise and rehabilitation programs. Specific exercises that are proven to enhance performance and reduce pain are also explained. Evidence-based research and cutting-edge application strategies from a leading spine specialist in North America make Low Back Disorders, Third Edition (Enhanced Edition), the authoritative text for the examination and rehabilitation of the low back. Its approach to back care will lead professionals and students alike in developing intervention, rehabilitation, and prevention programs to understand how to address the unique needs of each patient or client.
