With the use of dynamic visuals and kinesthetic exercises, "Functional Anatomy" helps readers to explore and understand the body's structures, regions, layer of the body, from bones to ligaments to superficial and deep muscles. It includes muscle profiles that indicate origin, insertion, and innervation points, and step-by-step instructions that teach effective bone and muscle palpation. Readers will also learn how structures help the body move through joint motion, and passive and resisted range of motion techniques. Each region ends with the culmination of structure and function to illustrate how they function together to achieve motion of daily activities as well as the movement involved in sports.
