In its Second Edition, this text addresses basic and applied physiological properties of skeletal muscle in the context of the physiological effects from clinical treatment. Many concepts are expanded and recent studies on human muscle have been added. This new edition also includes more clinically relevant cases and stories. A two-page full color insert of muscle sections is provided to ensure integral understanding of the concepts presented in the text. Anyone interested in human movement analysis and the understanding of generation and control from the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems in implementing movement will find this a valuable resource.If muscle fiber number does not change with immobilization, fiber area ought to be a good predictor of muscle force. ... Thus, when muscle fiber atrophy is discussed, strictly speaking, myofibrillar number or a parameter that is closely related toanbsp;...
