HUMAN LOCOMOTION MICHAUD PDF

Michaud begins by detailing the evolution of bipedality starting with the earliest ancestors of mankind, and explores theories proposing why humans transitioned from quadrupeds to upright walkers. Structural and functional anatomy of the lower kinetic chain is examined and seamlessly integrated into the evolution of man. Within this context, it allows the reader to appreciate the intricate design of the human body and how evolution has specifically allowed humans to adapt to environmental demands. The next two chapters carefully scrutinize normal and abnormal motions of the gait cycle.

Michaud begins by detailing the evolution of bipedality starting with the earliest ancestors of mankind, and explores theories proposing why humans transitioned from quadrupeds to upright walkers.

Structural and functional anatomy of the lower kinetic chain is examined and seamlessly integrated into the evolution of man. Within this context, it allows the reader to appreciate the intricate design of the human body and how evolution has specifically allowed humans to adapt to environmental demands. The next two chapters carefully scrutinize normal and abnormal motions of the gait cycle. The author reviews in detail the various biomechanical events that occur during the different phases of gait and finishes with a thought provoking discussion on the characteristics differentiating sprinters and endurance runners.

The section on abnormal motion during the gait cycle is extremely detailed and depicts deviations in the bones and joints of the lower extremity that can perpetuate injury. Biomechanical examination of the lower body is discussed with validity and reliability for many of the tests included. Foot orthotics and the shoe-gear is reviewed before the final chapter delves into an evidence-based approach to treating gait-related conditions. Overall, Human Locomotion is an excellent educational journey through human gait from evolution to management.

The text is wonderfully detailed, referenced and illustrated and should be high on the list of any clinician, regardless of discipline, interested in furthering their knowledge on the subject.
