Following on from the highly successful first edition, published in 2006, the second edition of Basic Orthopaedic Sciences has been fully updated and revised, with every chapter rewritten to reflect the latest research and practice. The book encompasses all aspects of musculoskeletal basic sciences that are relevant to the practice of orthopaedics and that are featured and assessed in higher specialty exams. While its emphasis is on revision, the book contains enough information to serve as a concise textbook, making it an invaluable guide for all trainees in orthopaedics and trauma preparing for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) as well as for surgeons at MRCS level, and other clinicians seeking an authoritative guide. The book helps the reader understand the science that underpins the clinical practice of orthopaedics, an often neglected area in orthopaedic training, achieving a balance between readability and comprehensive detail. Topics covered include biomechanics, biomaterials, cell & microbiology, histology, structure & function, immunology, pharmacology, statistics, physics of imaging techniques, and kinesiology.

While other texts emphasize only technical application of the basic principles of orthopedic science, this text demands critical thinking and enhanced awareness of principles and application of the foundations of orthopedic science. Tailored to the needs of the PTA, each chapter builds on previous information and is complete with challenging review questions. The 2nd edition also includes a stronger emphasis on the fundamentals on exercise science with focus on tissue healing, orthopedic injury, and how to bridge the gap between basic science and physical healing. It also includes six new chapters and the addition of seven appendices. Part I: Basic Concepts of Orthopedic Management begins with the essential concepts of teamwork and shared responsibility within the Physical Therapy team and then develops an understanding in the basic areas of flexibility, strength, endurance, balance, and coordination Part II: Review of Tissue Healing, introduces appropriate concepts of injury and repair of musculoskeletal tissue. Part III: Common Medications in Orthopedics, focuses on common medications used in orthopedics. Knowledge of the actions and side effects of medications and their possible impact on treatment is important for the PTA who is treating patients. Part IV: Gait and Joint Mobilization, provides information that will improve the PTA's ability to treat a patient with gait disability. Part V: Biomechanical Basis for Movement, deals with the basis of human movement. This section's presentation of introductory mechanics precedes orthopedic pathologies and therapeutic interventions by pulling together essential basics of anatomy, physiology, tissue healing, kinesiology, and principles of therapeutic exercise. Part VI: Management of Orthopedic Conditions, serves as the foundation of the text, covering the ankle, foot, and toes; the knee; the hip and pelvis; the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine; the shoulder; the elbow; and the wrist and hand. Each chapter is complete with challenging review questions that include substantial fill-in, essay questions, short answer, and important critical thinking applications. More than 530 photos and illustrations help readers understand new concepts and procedures. A unique new chapter, The Role of the Physical Therapist Assistant in Physical Assessment, offers a critical review of essential knowledge related to systems of the body and includes a systems approach to physical assessment specifically applied to PTA. Another unique new chapter, Physical Agents Used in the Treatment of Common Musculoskeletal Conditions, bridges the gap between basic science, assessment, and clinical utility of physical agents. The addition of a chapter on Orthopedic Biomechanics and Kinesiology helps broaden the scope of and enhance the clinical application of kinesiology. The new chapters Composition and Function of Connective Tissue and Neurovascular Healing and Thromboembolic Disease contain new and updated relevant information on ligament healing, bone healing (substantial increase), cartilage healing, and muscle and tendon healing. This new information is critical for the transition to applied principles of orthopedic injury and rehabilitation techniques. The new chapter on Concepts of Orthopedic Pharmacology is designed to enhance the knowledge base of a PTA dealing with patients on anti-inflammatory medications and antibiotics. This chapter introduces information concerning routes of drug administration, bioavailability, antibacterial classifications of drugs and related offending organisms, infections with total joint arthroplasty and fractures, as well as an introduction to anti-inflammatory medications. The addition of appendices broadens the knowledge base of the PTA student and assists in improving the PTA student's learning capacity and skills/knowledge in practice. They also provide enhanced knowledge of orthopedic and neurovascular anatomy. The 2nd edition has new illustrations, tables, and charts related to orthopedic and neurovascular anatomy in each chapter related to specific orthopedic injury and rehabilitation. The addition of Answers to Review Questions reinforces learning for the student and improves the PTA's skills/knowledge in practice. The glossary is enhanced with new terms and includes new information on biomechanics, biomaterials, medications, and names of surgical procedures.

Safety or comfort? Can you truly have one without the other? Is it feasible to have both? Although by no means the only factor, a deep understanding of biomechanics plays a leading role in the design of work and workplaces that are both pain and injury free. Standing firmly on the foundation built by the previous edition, the second edition of Biomechanics in Ergonomics establishes an understanding of gross biomechanical loads on the human system at the tissue level and then brings that understanding through to the whole body level. Applications for the Real World Produced under the aegis of editor Shrawan Kumar with contributors who are leading scholars in the field, the book contains unique chapters such as Exposure Assessment Tools and Techniques and Cumulative Load and Models. Also included is a chapter on hand tools, which have a real application to the field of ergonomics. New and significantly revamped chapters: Theories of occupational musculoskeletal injury causation Anthropometry and Biomechanics — Anthropometrics Mechanical Exposure Assessment in the Design of Work Determinant of Muscle Strength Biomechanics of Gloves The ACGIH TLV® for Hand Activity Level Whiplash Injuries — In Vitro Studies Whiplash Injuries — In Vivo Studies Models in Manual Materials Handling Revised NIOSH Lifting Equation Whole Body Vibration Cumulative Load and Models Create Safety Through Better Workplace Design The book dives deep into the biomechanics of the connective tissues before thoroughly covering upper and lower extremities, shoulder and neck, low back, and whole body mechanics. With chapters selected and designed to provide extensive coverage of ergonomically relevant biomechanics, this volume supplies an integrated understanding of the inseparable relationship between ergonomics and biomechanics that can be translated into better safety design and better workplaces.
