Manual of Structural Kinesiology
by Thompson & Floyd, 19th edition
Structural Kinesiology is the study of muscles as they are involved in the science of movement. This manual would be of interest to kinesiologists and those studying anatomy & physiology where a more detailed analysis of the muscular/skeletal system is required. Includes photographs and copious clear diagrams as well as detailed descriptions one would expect from a professional text. For each muscle there is described: origin, insertion, action, palpation, innervation, functional application and strengthening. Joints, bones and movements are similarly attended to. Excellent as a general resource, particularly for kinesiology instructors teaching.
