Manual of Structural Kinesiology. Eighth Edition.
Thompson, Clem W.
This manual is intended for use in college-level courses in structural kinesiology; mechanical kinesiology is introduced only briefly. The first chapter introduces the bases for structural kinesiology. Subsequent chapters are organized according to the areas of the body to be studied (e.g., the shoulder girdle, the shoulder joint, the elbow joint, the wrist and fingers, the hip joint, the knee joint, the ankle and foot, and the trunk) and according to areas of muscular analysis. The last chapter details some factors affecting motion and movement. Each is fully illustrated with diagrams, charts, and photographs. A typical chapter identifies the skeletal location of the muscle groups to be studied, describes the range of movement of these muscles, and describes each distinct muscle according to origin, insertion, action, palpation, observation, and exercise. Laboratory and review exercises conclude each chapter. Unlabeled skeletal diagrams are included as work-pages for practice in locating and identifying muscles. A list of selected references is appended. (MM)
