This volume aims to introduce students, particularly those whose A-level subjects did not include biological sciences, to a basic understanding of the way in which bones, joints, muscles and nerves allow the body to perform movement during daily activities. Both text and illustrations are structured to enable the student to build up knowledge of the way in which the various components of the locomotor system contribute to the complexity of movements in every day life and to predict the possible outcome of damage caused by disease or trauma. The authors have drawn upon their teaching and national examination experience to provide a basic foundation knowledge of normal locomotor function which gives a thorough grounding in the subject to every student entering paramedical education.
