Principles of Kinesiology by Maggie La Tourelle; Anthea CourtenayKinesiology is a system of natural health care that combines muscle testing with the principles of Chinese medicine to assess energy and body function. A touch therapy, it uses a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques and can be effective in the treatment of many conditions, including allergies, backache, fatigue, emotional difficulties, headaches and skin and bowel problems. This book describes how kinesiology can help with these problems by correcting imbalances found in the different forms of kinesiology assessment. This introductory guide explains how kinesiology works, how to find a practitioner and how it is usefully applied with other therapies, as well as how self-help techniques can be applied. It will be of interest to anyone considering kinesiology treatment, or simply wanting to find out more about this healing system. Students and practitioners of kinesiology and related practices will find it to be a useful reference, and a perfect introduction to recommend to clients.
Muscle Strength: Types, Efficiency and Drug Effects by Marvin S. Donato (Editor); Jahiem E. Marini (Editor)Sufficient levels of muscle strength, defined as the maximal force an individual is capable of exerting during a voluntary contraction, is a critical component to overall physical health and well-being. Muscle strength generally increases with age throughout childhood and adolescence. This book discusses specific methods of assessment and factors affecting muscle strength in children. In addition, many other factors including gender and physical activity levels have previously been reported to affect the structure or metabolic characteristics of skeletal muscle. This book reviews the literature describing the maladaptations that occur in skeletal muscle in response to the most common lifestyle associated chronic diseases and discusses the mechanisms behind the maladaptations, as well as potential therapies to halt or reverse the changes. This book also examines the impact of ageing on muscle strength, as well as reviews the physiological and mechanical properties of muscle architecture essential to the production of muscle force under different loading conditions.
Drawing on the very latest scientific research in the fields of strength and conditioning, applied physiology, biomechanics, sports psychology, and sports medicine, the book critically examines approaches to training for speed and agility.
