Book Description

Nov. 30 2005 0736059091 978-0736059091 2

Created expressly for those who will work in physical activity fields, the thoroughly revised and updated edition of Kinetic Anatomy continues to address how anatomy affects movement—how the human body is constructed and how it moves—by discussing bones, tying the bones together to make articulations, placing muscles on the bones, and observing how the joints move when the muscles contract.

In addition to retaining the best features from the first edition, the new edition of Kinetic Anatomy contains the following new features:
-Photos and images in a four-color format for easier visual recognition and comprehension

-An instructor guide and test package that make it easier for instructors to deliver the course content to students

-Additional summary tables that list articulations including type of joint, bones, ligaments, and movements

-The Primal IFA Essentials CD bound into the book to provide users with a superior anatomical learning tool
Kinetic Anatomy, Second Edition, encourages students to learn anatomy through hands-on experiments. The text also provides learning activities, practice questions, and suggested readings to assist in comprehension. The new edition makes it easy for future athletic trainers, physical education teachers, kinesiologists, and coaches to learn the fundamentals of anatomy—and to retain their knowledge for future application in advanced courses or on the job.

Part I discusses the basic concepts of anatomy while the remainder of the text is divided into sections devoted to regions of the body: the upper extremity in part II; the spinal column, pelvis, and thorax in part III; and the lower extremity in part IV. The organization of the topics is parallel to that in more advanced texts on the subject, allowing students an easy transition from the material covered in this book to higher-level courses.

The thoroughly revised and updated edition of Kinetic Anatomy lays the foundation for students to learn how anatomy affects movement of the human body. Never before has learning anatomy been this easy. Kinetic Anatomy, Second Edition, is an outstanding introductory resource for those who plan to specialize in any field related to physical activity. Readers will be able to apply the knowledge from this resource as they work with, treat, and train the physically active.

Interactive Anatomy CD Included!

Students and instructors alike will benefit from the software program Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy (IFA Essentials) by Primal Pictures that is bound into this book. This learning tool allows the user to remove structures layer by layer through 11 layers (from skin to bone) with the strip-away technique. Accompanying text includes information regarding proximal and distal attachments, nerve innervation, blood supply, and primary and secondary actions. Views of any specific structure on the screen can be rotated up to 360 degrees and stopped at any point for viewing. Additionally, the live-action video option allows for observation of muscle actions during walking, standing from a sitting position, and other activities such as push-ups and sit-ups. A zoom control allows the user to zoom in for a closer look at specific details or zoom out for overall views of any structure. Every structure has related text to further define the structure being viewed.

The anatomy text of IFA Essentials includes bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, retinacula, capsules, cartilage, discs, membranes, and other miscellaneous structures. The program includes detailed animations for the shoulder, elbow and forearm, wrist and hand, trunk, hip, knee, and ankle and foot. Each joint has a muscle-action analysis of each fundamental movement of every joint. IFA Essentials provides excellent learning opportunities for students of human anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics.

Product Description


”This is a very reader-friendly book that both undergraduate and graduate students will appreciate. Its scope is manageable, but the book does not shy away from complexity where appropriate. This edition adds quite a few improvements and is a worthy addition to the library of any kinesiology student or faculty member.”
David W. Brzezinski, MD, University of Michigan Medical School

“The text is highly recommended for students beginning their study of human anatomy, particularly those students who learn best visually and kinesthetically.”
CAHPERD Journal (review of first edition)

About the Author

Robert S. Behnke, HSD, is uniquely qualified to write an introductory anatomy text that is preeminently user friendly to students. Retired after 39 years of teaching anatomy, kinesiology, physical education, and athletic training courses, Dr. Behnke has been honored on several occasions for excellence in teaching—including receiving the Educator of the Year award from the National Athletic Trainers' Association. During his 11-year tenure as chair of the NATA Professional Education Committee, he initiated the petition to the American Medical Association that led to the national accreditation process for entry-level athletic training education programs.

Most of Dr. Behnke's career was spent at Indiana State University, where he was a full professor of physical education and athletic training and director of undergraduate and graduate athletic training programs. Earlier in his career he spent five years teaching at the secondary level. He had extensive experience as an athletic trainer, both in high schools and at the university level, serving as head athletic trainer at Illinois State University from 1966 to 1969 and the University of Illinois from 1969 to 1973. He was an athletic trainer at the 1983 World University Games and for the U.S. men's Olympic basketball trials in 1984. During sabbaticals in 1982 and 1989, he served as an athletic trainer for boxing, men's field hockey, team handball, ice skating, roller hockey, gymnastics, judo, and cycling at the United States Olympic Training Center. He has been in demand as a speaker and as an athletic trainer throughout the United States and internationally.

These broad experiences enabled Dr. Behnke to understand the needs of undergraduate students—and to develop an unparalleled grasp of which pedagogical approaches work and which do not. Kinetic Anatomy is the culmination of his unique understanding; it should be a staple in undergraduate courses for years to come.

Kinetic Anatomy, 2nd Edition (Book & CD Rom)

I was looking for this kind of book on human anatomy, which is not written by M.D. but one from sports field. In it covers probably everything that trainer needs in his line of work. With a book there come also cd rom with pictures of bones, muscles, nerves. I am student of sport science and trainer and I am sure that this item will help me during my work and study. And by the way I bought this book after I readed that is one of essential readings by Eric Cressey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative learning!! Dec 3 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for the medical human anatomy student.
It is a very deep in depth medical "textbook" even though it is not a textbook.
If you want to learn this is a good book to read, research, and put into practice.
This is an older version and there are newer versions now available, but this book explains in detail injuries, location of muscles, and explains what muscles do.
This book is a large thick paperback cover book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything was great. April 22 2013
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The product arrived in great condition, EARLY as well. It is as if the book wasn't even used at all, and the pricing was over 50% off the price at school. The only "negative" was that the book was pretty simplistic and basic. But that comes with knowing what you're buying. But other than that, the seller definitely was on top of things (scheduling delivery and all) as well as honest about the quality of the product.
