Description

When we suffer from musculoskeletal difficulties, most of us assume there is something wrong with our posture and balance. We then seek out the assistance of a healing professional who might treat us with massage, medication, or new stretching exercises. But why are children and even some well-coordinated adults far less prone to injury? How is it that their muscles do not require the same degree of massaging, strengthening, or stretching as others? The reason, says Theodore Dimon in Anatomy in Action , is that our muscles, bones, and connective tissue form a dynamic, highly organized system of support. Understanding this system is the key for developing and maintaining healthy musculoskeletal functioning, as well as avoiding injury. This practical and informative guidebook describes the basic principles governing our body's musculoskeletal architecture, including the specific anatomical systems-such as the shoulders, spinal extensors, and hips-that make up its complex design. Anatomy in Action provides readers with a precise view into the beautiful and remarkable apparatus operating beneath our skin. With over 200 illustrations as well as practical exercises for activating specific muscle groups, this is a valuable handbook demonstrating the musculoskeletal marvel in action. It is also the ideal resource for students and practitioners of body work, movement, kinesiology, and dance.

Critic Reviews

“"I enthusiastically recommend this book. It very clearly and simply achieves its stated goal of 'contribut[ing] to a practical and theoretical understanding of this vital subject and to an advance[ing] in our knowledge of the remarkable and subtle workings of [the musculoskeletal system of] the human body.' It is exceptionally readable for anyone who has an interest in understanding the basic parts of our body that contribute so greatly to our daily living and well-being." --Richard A. Magill, PhD, coauthor of Motor Learning and Control and adjunct professor at the Movement Sciences Program, Teachers College, Columbia University "What would it be like for you 'to be connected' with your body--to be aligned mentally and physically to prevent injury, tension, and stress? Dr. Ted Dimon gives us the tools to have a heightened awareness of this mind/body relationship. The fundamental aspects of anatomy are creatively illustrated. The wonderful dynamics of the human body in motion are displayed to perfection. This book will guide you to achieve proper alignment of the muscle/bone/joint unit. What a gift for wellness and therapeutic healing!" --Dr. Marie Lupica, assistant attending pediatrician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and assistant professor of clinical pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College "In this groundbreaking book, Ted Dimon unravels the mystery of the moving body, making sense of its various functions and capacities. For Dimon, the body is not simply something to be treated, but is the vital foundation for living healthfully, for paying attention to oneself, and for paying respect to our living design. I recommend this book highly, whether for healers of others or healers of self, who seek to reintegrate bodily awareness with physical form. Dimon opens the door leading to wholeness." --Lisa Miller, PhD, professor and founder of Spirituality Mind Body Institute, Columbia University, and author of the New York Times best seller The Spiritual Child”
