BIOMECHANICS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURY, SECOND EDITION, PRESENTS CLEAR, ACCESSIBLE EXPLANATIONS OF THE BIOMECHANICAL PRINCIPLES OF INJURY AND HOW INJURIES AFFECT THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF MUSCLES, CONNECTIVE TISSUE, AND JOINTS. NOTED BIOMECHANISTS WILLIAM WHITING AND RONALD ZERNICKE GUIDE READERS THROUGH THE MECHANICAL CONCEPTS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES WITHOUT HEAVY EMPHASIS ON MATHEMATICS. ALMOST 10 YEARS AFTER THE PUBLICATION OF THE FIRST EDITION, THIS MUCH-NEEDED SECOND EDITION HAS BEEN VASTLY IMPROVED. PACKED WITH MORE THAN 400 ILLUSTRATIONS, INCLUDING GRAPHS AND ANATOMICAL ART (NEARLY TWICE AS MANY AS IN THE PREVIOUS EDITION), BIOMECHANICS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURY, SECOND EDITION, IS AN INDISPENSABLE REFERENCE OFFERING PERSPECTIVES ON AND APPRECIATION FOR THE INTRICACIES OF INJURY MECHANISMS. THE TEXT PROVIDES A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR IN-DEPTH STUDY WITH A COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION OF THESE ISSUES: -THE MECHANICAL ASPECTS OF INJURY AND THE CONCEPT OF INJURY AS A STIMULUS FOR BENEFICIAL TISSUE ADAPTATIONS -HOW INJURY AFFECTS THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE HUMAN MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM AND AN EXAMINATION OF ARTHROLOGY, OR JOINT MECHANICS -MECHANICAL PARAMETERS SUCH AS FORCE, STRESS AND STRAIN, STIFFNESS, AND ELASTICITY AND THEIR APPLICATION TO TISSUE MECHANICS AND INJURY -HOW CONNECTIVE TISSUES RESPOND TO MECHANICAL LOADING AND HOW THOSE TISSUES ARE STUDIED TO QUANTIFY THEIR MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR -FACTORS SUCH AS AGE, GENDER, NUTRITION, AND EXERCISE WITH EMPHASIS ON HOW LIFESTYLE CHOICES MIGHT LESSEN THE CHANCE OR SEVERITY OF INJURY -HOW THE PRINCIPLES OF MECHANICAL LOAD AND OVERLOAD, USE AND OVERUSE, LEVEL AND PROGRESSION OF INJURY, AND THE MANY CONTRIBUTORY FACTORS INVOLVED IN INJURY COMBINE TO FORM A BACKDROP FOR VIEWING SPECIFIC MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES DRAWING ON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN PREVIOUS CHAPTERS, THE FINAL SECTION OF THE TEXT COVERS THE ESSENTIALS OF INJURIES OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY, UPPER EXTREMITY, AND THE HEAD, NECK, AND TRUNK.

Reseña del editor:

This book reflects the combined talents of 2 highly respected authorities on the biomechanics of musculoskeletal injury. Suitable for an undergraduate audience, the writing simplifies complex material and downplays the need for strong mathematical skills to understand the important concepts developed in the book. The second edition presents the basic mechanics of injury, function of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of injury on connective tissue which often tends to be involved in the injury process. There is new material on the principles of overload and tissue adaptation with implications for lifestyle choices that may lessen the chance of injury. Injury mechanisms are considered with particular focus on the mechanical properties of tissues and their clinical relevance. Expanded regional coverage of specific injuries provides the reader with the most recent information on topical injuries with additional highlights on injury topics of current concern.Enhanced visual support for the book also provides the reader with added perspective and appreciation for the intricacies of different injury types.
