Availability:This title is in stock.



An interactive text ideal for all health and sports professional students who require a basic understanding of the major biomechanical principles they meet in practice, including movement analysis and tissue mechanics. Starting from the point of zero-knowledge, this book presents what can be a very dry and difficult area, in an engaging and visual way using everyday objects to illustrate the principles and linking this to human anatomy and movement . Less time is spent on mathematics and classic mechanics with greater emphasis on how these principles are applied to professional practice

Introductory Biomechanics uses workbook-style learning diffusing manageable chunks of theory with learning activities and ultimately making the link back to clinical application.

Key Features

  • Problems are posed to help students work through the theory and apply it to clinical scenarios
  • Boxes containing additional information on many subjects extend knowledge or provide historical perspective to the principle in question
