"a great overview, and a theoretical underpinning to clinical biomechanics." "it would be a useful reference resource for many health departments" "a brilliant textbook that assists the reader through a large, difficult topic" "This book is a complete course comprising of fully integrated print and online components which bring quality animations to life." "This book is recommended for the library of any practitioner who has a strong interest in biomechanics and wishes to study further the concepts of biomechanics taking it to the next level."
