This book reflects the combined talents of 2 highly respected authorities on the biomechanics of musculoskeletal injury. Suitable for an undergraduate audience, the writing simplifies complex material and downplays the need for strong mathematical skills to understand the important concepts developed in the book. The second edition presents the basic mechanics of injury, function of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of injury on connective tissue which often tends to be involved in the injury process. There is new material on the principles of overload and tissue adaptation with implications for lifestyle choices that may lessen the chance of injury. Injury mechanisms are considered with particular focus on the mechanical properties of tissues and their clinical relevance. Expanded regional coverage of specific injuries provides the reader with the most recent information on topical injuries with additional highlights on injury topics of current concern.Enhanced visual support for the book also provides the reader with added perspective and appreciation for the intricacies of different injury types.
