Muscles, Nerves and Movement: In Human Occupation

Barbara Tyldesley, June I. Grieve, "Muscles, Nerves and Movement: In Human Occupation"
Wiley-Blackwell; 3rd edition (August 15, 2002) | English | 0632059737 | 280 pages | PDF | 5.95 MB

This book is written primarily for students entering the paramedical professions, particularly those with a limited scientific background. Clinicians will use the book as a reference source for acquiring a further understanding of the basic movement problems encountered by their patients.
Section I describes the structure and function of the basic components of the musculoskeletal system. An introduction to the location, organisation and functions of central and peripheral nervous systems is given, which is developed further in Section III. The terms to describe the movements at joints and the types of muscle work are defined and the mechanical principles related to the stability of the body are outlined.
Section II is a functional approach to the anatomy of movement. The structure and movements of the major joints of the body are described. The position, attachments and nerve supply of the muscles are given, together with their use in named activities of daily living.
Section III augments the knowledge of the nervous system from Section I to formulate an account of the sensory and motor systems in movement control.
Section IV has two new chapters. One chapter explores the multiple factors in the performance of functional movements, and develops a system for the analysis of core body positions and the transitions between them. A framework for the understanding of human occupation forms the basis of the final chapter and several case histories are described to demonstrate the application of the framework to specific clinical problems.
