Written by the author of the highly successful Understanding Muscles, Understanding Joints encourages the reader to develop awareness and understanding of how the joints of the body work. An interactive learning approach is taken with the author suggesting palpation and other interactive learning techniques as the best way to appreciate joint function.

This is an excellent introductory text for students of physiotherapy, osteopathy and other subjects related to orthopedics and manual medicine. It can also be used as a reference source providing a general overview of the structure and functions of the main joints in the body. The book is extensively illustrated and includes a range of study tasks to encourage learning by discovery. Clinical notes, written at an introductory level, help to link theory with possible clinical problems on specific joints and joint groups.
