    While clinicians today are trained in gross musculoskeletal anatomy, solid clinical evaluations demand a thorough knowledge of functional anatomy as well.

    The Illustrated Guide to Functional Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System provides:

    • The groundwork to understand musculoskeletal function, the basis of all biomechanics
    • Important base knowledge of normal musculoskeletal function and how deviations are caused to help clinicians determine the most appropriate diagnoses and treatments
    • Easy-to-read text with numerous quick-reference tables
    • Information on regional and systemic function
    • Chapters organized by each segment of the musculoskeletal system for easy reference
    • Anatomical material that analyzes everyday activities and associated movements
    • Informative illustrations to further deepen knowledge of each musculoskeletal segment's function and to clinically diagnose impairment

    For years, clinical understanding of impaired function has been based on neuromuscular dysfunction with resultant pain. The Guide now helps you examine impaired neuromusculoskeletal activity more meaningfully by grounding it in functional anatomy. This is an outstanding primer for medical clinicians, medical students, residents, reimbursement coding staff and other musculoskeletal allied health disciplines.
