Conceived and written over forty years ago, it has brought back to centre stage biomechanics, which previously was dismissed as anecdotal in works on human anatomy. As a result of this impetus every work on anatomy nowadays covers in depth the functional features of the locomotor apparatus; in short, biomechanics has become a science that cannot be ignored. This book will be a valuable text for manual therapists, physical therapists, massage therapists, and osteopaths interested in the biomechanics of the human body. A synoptic diagram showing the factors affecting the stability of the knee Explanation of the presence of two bones in the leg, based on an understanding of the functional anatomy of the ankle The idea of the universal joint as applicable to the ankle-hindfoot articular complex The vital concept of viewing the leg as "compartments" A new chapter on the physiology of walking A synoptic table of the nerves of the lower limb Appendix with updated mechanical models of three-dimensional diagrams that can be assembled, providing a teaching tool for student and teacher alike.

There would be no problem if muscles interact in harmony with musculoskeletal system or nervous system. Posture analysis is crucial for clinical assessments in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
However, studies into this issue are limited. In this study, the relationship between static standing balance and anthropomorphic features in healthy subjects was investigated. The study was carried out with a total of students at Baskent University females, males aged between 18 and 25 years. Type of balance of the subjects was determined with lateral posture analysis.
Additionally, muscle shortness tests, subcutaneous fat thickness, and waist and thigh circumference were measured. As the results of lateral posture analysis, subjects 71 males, 36 females were detected to have anterior balance, 89 41 males, 48 females posterior balance, and 44 12 males, 32 girls neutral balance.
A statistically significant difference was detected between these values in the subjects who had anterior balance. In conclusion, a significant relationship was detected between muscle shortness, waist and thigh circumferences, and postural balance type.
Introduction Posture is one of the most important factors affecting physical and mental status of the individuals through their lives. Posture in humans is affected by different factors including familial factors, anatomical structural impairments, postural habits, and occupation .
According to the definition of Posture Committee of American Academy of Orthopedics in , posture is the regular and balanced arrangement of skeletal components so as to preserve supportive structures of the body from injury and progressive deformation [1, 2].
Anterior and posterior structures share the load on this segment as two columns. Anterior column is the main supportive structure. Anterior column plays a static role, and posterior column plays a dynamic role . With a balanced posture, body and.
