Learn how to apply kinesiology concepts and treat dysfunction with Muscolino’s Kinesiology: The Skeletal System and Muscle Function, 3rd Edition! With more than 1,200 full-color illustrations, this highly visual text offers a vividly illustrated look at the skeletal system and how muscles function as movers, antagonists, and stabilizers in the body. Part One covers the fundamentals of structure and motion, including essential terminology that is used in kinesiology. Part Two covers the skeletal system including the makeup of skeletal and fascial tissues. Part Three contains a detailed study of the joints of the body. And lastly, Part Four examines how muscles function. This new edition also boasts an all-new chapter on biomechanics, more than 100 online video clips, and an interactive muscle program. If you want a thorough understanding of muscle function and how to apply that knowledge on the job, then there’s no better guide than Muscolino! Coverage of strengthening exercises and stretching emphasizes the purposes and benefits of stretching and how to perform various stretching techniques. The most up-to-date information on posture and the gait cycle features high-quality art. Comprehensive chapter on muscle action and attachments includes illustrations of all of the muscles of the human body organized by function. Clinical applications throughout the book are directly related to kinesiology concepts and challenge you to apply what you’ve learned to clinical practice. Complete atlas of bones, bony landmarks, and joints includes more than 100 full-color photographs of every bone in the human body, giving you comprehensive coverage of bones not found in other kinesiology books. Clear, simple explanations of kinesiology concepts cover muscle contraction(s), coordination of muscles with movement, core stabilization, posture, exercise, reflexes, and how the nervous system controls and directs the muscular system. Approximately 1,200 four-color illustrations help you visualize important concepts. A wide variety of user resources include a comprehensive glossary of terms from the book, radiographs, answers to the review questions at the end of each chapter in the book, an interactive muscle program, and videos featuring joint actions and palpation techniques. NEW! A new chapter on biomechanics helps you understand how the body moves under normal circumstances and what may impair its movement in pathology. NEW! Improved illustrations in The Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body offer a vivid muscle atlas within the text. NEW! Expanded resources on Evolve companion site include a new collection of video clips and an interactive muscle program which help you identify the necessary skills for professional success.

Start your journey into the human body with cells, bones and muscles. Our resource takes you through a fascinating study of anatomy with current information. Begin with cells, the building blocks of life. Build your own cell by sculpting the different parts. Move into tissues, organs and systems to discover all the different systems that make the human body function. Next is the skeletal system. Invent your own alien skeleton using the different bones found in the human body. Understand that these bones are held together with joints and cartilage. Finally, end this part of the journey with the muscular system. Find out the difference between skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles before identifying voluntary and involuntary muscle movement. Aligned to the Next Generation State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on experiments, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.

This complete, full-color atlas of bones and joints contains over 700 illustrations and explains how muscles function as movers, antagonists, and stabilizers so readers will truly understand how muscles function in the human body. It includes the bones, landmarks, and joints, as well as an introduction to the basics of how muscles function (beginning kinesiology). It also provides clinical applications related to the kinesiology concepts presented and includes an explanation of anatomical and physiological terminology that is needed for work in the musculoskeletal field. Finally, this book covers microanatomy and microphysiology, such as the sliding filament theory and the structure and function of fascia. Clinical applications throughout the text, as they relate to the kinesiology concepts covered, enable students to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to clinical practice. Over 100 full-color photographs of every bone in the human body gives readers comprehensive coverage of bones not found in other kinesiology books. Clear, full-color line drawings that highlight each topic in the overview of the human body, joints of the human body, and muscle function parts. Thorough coverage of joints in six chapters that provide information on structure, function, terminology, and specific illustrations on each joint in the human body: joints of the axial body, joints of the upper extremity, and joints of the lower extremity. Includes an explanation of anatomical and physiological terminology that is needed for work in the musculoskeletal field.

Joe Muscolino’s The Muscular System Manual: The Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body, 4th Edition is an atlas of the muscles of the human body. This approachable, yet detailed, musculoskeletal anatomy manual provides both beginner and advanced students with a thorough understanding of skeletal muscles in a compartmentalized, customizable layout. Each muscle spread shows the individual muscle drawn over a photo of the human body, with an arrow to indicate the line of pull of the muscle, and explains: the muscle name, the origin of that name, Greek and Latin derivations, pronunciation, attachments, actions, eccentric contraction function, isometric contraction function, innervation to two levels of detail with predominant levels in bold, and arterial supply to two levels of detail. This new edition also features robust Evolve resources, an updated art program, and new chapter review and critical thinking questions that encourage you to apply what you have learned to prepare for practice. UNIQUE! Overlay art, consisting of over 380 full-color anatomical illustrations of muscles, bones, and ligaments drawn over photographs, helps identify the positions of muscles and bones in the human body. UNIQUE! Electronic Muscle and Bone Review Program features a base photograph with a skeleton drawn in and a list of every muscle for each major region of the body so students can choose any combination of muscles and place them onto the illustration — allowing them to see not only the muscle attachments, but also the relationship among the muscles of the region. Complete muscle coverage in an easy-to-understand layout makes this text appropriate for novices to anatomy, as well as intermediate and advanced students. Content organized by body region and includes information on how muscles in that region function together and large drawings of the muscles of that region so you can go directly to the topic you are studying. Covers the methodology for each muscle with information for learning muscle actions to explain the reasoning behind each action — and encourage you to learn and not just memorize. A four-color, student-friendly design with sections clearly boxed throughout and checkboxes that help you keep track of what you need to learn and what you have mastered. Customizable format, with checkboxes and numbered lists in each muscle layout, presents basic muscle information for the beginning student in bold type and more advanced information in regular type. Palpation boxes include bulleted steps instructing how to palpate each muscle so you can apply this assessment skill in practice. Evolve website for instructors includes TEACH Resources, a Test Bank, and an image collection so instructors can easily access all of the materials they need to teach their course in one place — and track through the course management system provided via Evolve. Evolve website for students includes access to audio of the author reading aloud muscle names, attachments, and actions for the muscles covered in the book, labeling exercises, and more to enrich your learning experience.
