Summary
"No training in orthopaedics can be considered complete unless it includes an in depth exposure to the basic concepts and techniques of biomechanics. The notion of the human body as a complex mechanism composed of levers, cables, fulcrums, and force actuators provides a foundation for much of our current thinking about the function and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. Yet this very useful body of knowledge is often inaccessible to the busy resident and practicing orthopaedist because of the unremitting rigor with which mechanical analysis is usually pursued and because of the proprietary vocabulary with which it is often described. In preparing A Primer of Biomechanics, the authors have broken down these barriers to provide orthopaedic residents, practicing orthopaedists, and others with a friendlier entree to this important material."--Jacket
