Book Preface

The major addition to the Fifth Edition is the chapter on the circulatory system. The cardiovascular and lymphatic systems are becoming more clinically relevant in the fields of physical and occupational therapy, athletic training, and massage therapy, just as they have in other medical fields. New treatment techniques require basic understanding of these systems.
Individuals wanting a fundamental understanding of kinesiology and anatomy from a clinical perspective will find this text of great value. The anatomical basis of common pathological conditions is briefly described in most chapters to give greater clinical relevance. The functional activities and clinical exercises in the “Review Questions” section of many chapters have been expanded.

he depth and scope of the text remains the same. Emphasis is on basic kinesiology and anatomy. Simple, easy-to-follow descriptions and explanations remain the core of this book. Not all disciplines may need all of the information within this text. For example, some disciplines may not have a need to study arthrokinematics, or the temporomandibular joint, or gait. The book is written so that instructors can omit these and other concepts without putting the student at a disadvantage in terms of understanding other subject matter. The chapters dedicated to the various joints are essentially self-standing, so the order in which they are read can be easily changed. Instead of beginning with joints of the upper extremity, one could begin with the lower extremity or the axial skeleton, and not lose understanding.
