Textbook of Kinesiology

by VD Bindal

The general approach to the book, Textbook of Kinesiology is to provide possible information needed mostly by the physical educators and physiotherapists though it has broad application across any discipline that incorporates movement science, such as the sports coaching, and the athletics. The basic facts, concepts and principles of kinesiology and the science of human movement are primarily organized as to be contained in any standard textbook of physical education and physiotherapy. The book is comprehensive, readable and well-illustrated. The contents of the book are divided into three major sections and further into 16 chapters. The first section, i.e. introduction and fundamentals contains three chapters; introduction to kinesiology, anatomical and physiological fundamentals of human motion, and basic biomechanical concepts. The second and a major section of the book, i.e. kinesiology of body regions is dealt with in nine chapters in great length covering various body regions, i.e. shoulder girdle, shoulder, elbow and radioulnar joints, wrist and hand, pelvic girdle, hip, knee, ankle and foot, and spine. The third section, i.e. motor skills: principles and application includes four chapters, one each on posture, locomotion, application of kinesiology to selected daily life activities and sports skills, and prevention of sports injuries: the mechanical and kinesiological viewpoint.
