Summary: In the first book of its kind, noted biomechanists William Whiting and Ronald Zernicke explore the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury to better understand causal mechanisms, the effect of injury on musculoskeletal tissues, and how our current knowledge of biomechanics can contribute to injury prevention.

Never before has the broad spectrum of injury mechanics been covered so completely in a single book. From introductory biomechanics to detailed exa moreminations of the mechanical aspects of common injuries, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury provides a solid foundation for in-depth study. The book includes comprehensive information on

  • The basic biomechanical concepts of force, stress and strain, stiffness, and elasticity
  • The mechanics of joints that are subject to disabling injury
  • The structure of connective tissues (bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments), which are most often involved in musculoskeletal injuries, and factors such as age, gender, nutrition, and exercise, which affect the musculoskeletal system's response to force.

After providing the reader with a fundamental understanding of tissue structure and function, the authors then proceed with detailed explorations of the mechanisms of common injuries, including
  • Inversion ankle sprains, stress fractures, and other lower-extremity injuries
  • Rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other injuries to the upper extremities, and concussions, intervertebral disc injuries, and other injuries that afflict the head, neck, and trunk.

Packed with more than 300 drawings, photos, and tables, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury is both visually compelling and indispensable as a reference on injury mechanisms.
"The style and format of the book is excellent. It is easily read with ample illustrations." --Don B. Chaffin, PhD, Director, Center for Ergonomics, The University of Michigan "Finally, an authoritative text that provides a scientific foundation for understanding the mechanisms of musculoskeletal injury. Knowledge of this information is essential for several professional groups, including those interested in the biomedical aspects of injury mechanisms, those concerned with injury prevention, and those involved in facilitating recovery from injury. For individuals with these interests, this text is required reading." --Roger M. Enoka, Professor, University of Colorado at Boulder less
