The human body is amazing: all structures work together to provide locomotion and support. Knowledge of how this takes place is critical to the field of occupational therapy. Kinesiology Foundations for OTAs combines precise clinical information, practical applications, and detailed illustrations that allow readers to understand this rigorous subject matter. This book is designed to describe the structures and functions of muscles, bones, and ligaments of the human body. It further addresses the interactions between these structures to illustrate how movements are performed.
