Summary

In the human body, 206 bones work with more than 600 muscles to provide structure, mobility, and protection. Keeping them healthy takes knowledge and effort but is extremely important to a person’s well-being. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 70 million Americans suffer from arthritis or chronic joint pain and an estimated 20 million seek chiropractic help each year in search of relief from muscle pain or realignment of their skeleton.

In an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format, The Encyclopedia of the Muscle and Skeletal Systems and Disorders provides more than 500 concise entries covering all aspects of muscle and bone in the human body. Complete, comprehensive coverage includes anatomy, metabolic processes, injuries, diseases and disorders, treatments, medicines, nutrition, current research, and much more. Facilitating quick and thorough research, extensive appendixes supply lists of organizations, web resources, a guide to evaluating health information found online, and lists of the major muscle and skeletal systems, connectors, and joints. An essential reference for everyone from medical professionals to general readers, The Encyclopedia of Muscle and Skeletal Systems and Disorders provides a complete survey of this topic in one single volume.
