Therapeutic Kinesiology: Musculoskeletal Systems, Palpation, and Body Mechanics – eBook PDF
Mary Ann Foster
Therapeutic Kinesiology, (PDF) offers practical and relevant applications of the study of human movement to the practice of bodywork and massage. One of the first kinesiology textbooks precisely geared to massage therapists, it’s actually three ebooks in one: a palpation text, a kinesiology text, and a body mechanics textbook. Stressed on experiential learning, it is replete with self-study exercises — including many specifically designed to help practitioners prevent work-related injuries.
It presents clear, friendly, and easy-to-read coverage of the muscular, skeletal, and neuromuscular systems; joint motion; biomechanics; basic palpation skills, the thorax, and respiration; posture and gait; the ankle, foot, knee, pelvis, hip, spine, head, neck, shoulder girdle, hand, arm and more. Several color photos and anatomical images appear throughout, together with many practical tips — including expert guidance on client education.
