Description - Anatomy in Action: The Dynamic Muscular Systems that Create and Sustain the Moving Body by Theodore Dimon Jr.
A practical and informative guidebook illustrating the core design principles behind the body's musculoskeletal system.
An illustrated guide to the core design principles of the body's musculoskeletal system-for kinesiologists, movement therapists, yoga teachers, dancers, and bodyworkers of all kinds
What does knowledge of anatomical structure have to do with preventing everyday muscular aches, pains, and injuries? According to Dr. Theodore Dimon, everything!
Our bodies are designed to work holistically, supported by an intelligently organized system of muscles, bones, and connective tissue. So when we target problem spots by stretching, relaxing, or strengthening individual muscles, we bypass the dynamic, interconnected network that enables healthy functioning and injury prevention. Understanding how this system works in action is the key.
In this groundbreaking guide, Dr. Dimon describes the basic principles that govern our bodies' musculoskeletal architecture and provides practical exercises to activate specific muscle groups and demonstrate our bodies' efficient holistic function. Readers will learn about dynamic design and the body in action, including-
. How the musculoskeletal system works as a whole
. The relationship between proprioception and muscle length
. About maximizing spinal, shoulder, hip, arm, and leg stability and health
. The important role of breath and breathing
. About posture and musculoskeletal support
With more than 300 illustrations, this is an ideal resource for students and practitioners of kinesiology, bodywork, movement, sport kinesiology, dance, and all readers searching for a dynamic guide to the human body.
