While studying human function is an evolving and continuous process, comprehension of function will help you view movement from a new perspective that will lead to a paradigm shift in your exercise program design. This book will help you develop consistent skills based on human movement and help you enhance function through creative latitude while adding multiple tools to your productive toolbox.

We study functional anatomy to understand how motion is a product of the cause and effects of movement, limitations, compensations, and the resultant actions. Based on an understanding of the continuous thread of connective tissue, adjacent muscles, and soft tissue, we can view motion and begin to ask the very important questions of what?…how?…when?…why? The answers to those questions will guide us in treatment and exercise programming for our clients and patients.
