Comparative Kinesiology of the Human Body in Normal and Pathological Conditions covers the changes in musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiopulmonary systems, which when combined are the three pillars of human movement. It examines the causes, processes, consequences and contexts of physical activity from different perspectives and life stages, including early childhood and in the elderly. The book explains how purposeful movement of the human body is affected by pathological conditions related to any of these major systems. Coverage also includes external and internal factors that affect human growth patterns and development throughout the lifespan (embryo, child, adult and geriatrics).It is the perfect reference for researchers of kinesiology and clinicians and students involved in rehabilitation practice.
