About this book

Introduction

A PRIMER OF BIOMECHANICS is the first volume of its kind to present the principles of biomechanics with a highly clinical orientation. Dr. Lucas and his colleagues (specialists in biomechanics) have assembled a practical guide utilizing case presentations to make this very technical and complicated material palatable to the orthopaedic resident and practitioner. This "user-friendly" text is further enhanced by well integrated chapters covering all the basic materials and the latest information of this rapidly evolving field from the perspective of its useful application. Each case presentation is followed by a detailed, but easily understandable explanation of the biomechanical principles involved and includes protocols for treatment. This volume is a must-have for orthopaedic residents and practitioners.
