Anatomy and Human Movement: Structure and Function describes the musculoskeletal structures of the human body and the biomechanics behind their movements. The book provides anatomical descriptions of bone and muscle groups with emphasis on the joints; enumeration of common traumatic or pathological problems affecting the musculoskeletal structures; and the use of palpation through intact skin to describe the structures, as well as how movements can be tested and analyzed with respect to joint movement, muscle work and function. Chapters on embryology; the skin and its appendages; terminologies used in the book; and an account of the structure and function of the nervous system are included as well. Students of anatomy will find the text a valuable reference material. We are always looking for ways to improve customer experience on Elsevier.

Anatomy and Human Movement: Structure and Function, Second Edition, is concerned with the musculoskeletal system and its application to human movement. The design of this new edition builds on the success of the first edition. There has been some reorganization of the text and illustrations for better clarity, as well as new sections on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and urogenital systems, and on the eye and ear. Apart from introductory sections terminology; components of the musculoskeletal system; embryology; and skin, its appendages and special senses , the book has three sections dealing with the musculoskeletal system: the upper limb, the lower limb, and the head, neck and trunk. In addition there is a fourth section on the nervous system. Each musculoskeletal section is presented in a similar way beginning with a study of the bones, to provide the basic framework of the section. This is followed by a description of the muscles, which are considered in functional groups in an attempt to explain how movement is produced.
