With more than references and illustrations, Dr. Beginning with a complete review of the evolution of bipedality, this textbook goes on to describe the functional anatomy of each pocomotion in the lower extremity, pelvis, and spine. This information is then related to normal and abnormal motions during the gait cycle, providing the most comprehensive description of human locomotion ever published. Human Locomotion also discusses a wide range of conservative interventions, including a detailed guide to manual therapies, a complete review of every aspect of orthotic intervention, along with illustrated explanations of hundreds of rehabilitative stretches and exercises.

The final chapter summarizes state-of-the-art, proven conservative treatment interventions, providing specific protocols for dozens of common gait-related injuries, including Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures and hamstring strains.

This michxud offers the reader insight into how we became bipeds as well as all the anatomy and biomechanics of being bipeds. The book is exceptionally well researched with references.

I’ve used the information in this michauud as well as from Dr. Michaud’s on-line articles to help manage micgaud extremity and running injuries in patients, improve my triathlete client’s running mechanics and have used this information to improve my own running form after a year of being out of triathlon and running. Anything you would want to know about human locomotion is probably in this book.

It’s a pretty dense read with lots of research to back it up. I found some parts to be difficult to read and apply to clinical practice, so it took me a long time to get through the book I’ve actually attempted to read it several times and failed. I would use this more as a reference text and wouldn’t encourage anyone to read it all the way through at a given time.

I’ve also found that some sections are more applicable than others. Definitely a good book for anyone treating runners though. This is my can’t put down reference text and I’m so greatful that I purchased this. If you are going locomotoon deal with athletes then this book humna a must. It always amazed me that even after the advanced degrees and certifications there can still be a significant gap in your knowledge in certain clinical areas.

For me this area seemed to be one that school and post doctoral humann just glossed over and didn’t provide the depth I wanted to be able to help every patient. This text will fill those gaps and calm any fears as you will soon realize that humman is a game changer in your clinical practice.

One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. And absolutely fascinating book. The chapter on the Paleo archaeology of the evolution of bipedal gait Is wonderful. It is not my field locomoion so it provides a wonderful summary.

The Author discusses the anatomy of the feet in depth and the biomechanics of walking and running in ways that are quite helpful for the squatter, clinician, or serious athlete.

Human Locomotion: The Conservative Management of Gait-Related Disorders

Michaud has made a major contribution to the evolution, and biomechanics of human motion. In addition, he has explained what treatments work in motion-related injuries, and why others don’t. Michaud who is the running therapist to the marathoning michhaud has done it all, the research, the brilliantly simple writing, and the breath-taking artwork.


Nothing like this has previously existed in the field. A must-read for especially endurance athletes and those who treat them.

Human Locomotion : The Conservative Management of Gait-Related Disorders

Excellent book specially the graphics. So incredibly detailed, love this book. This is a brilliant book and a “must have” for all practitioners dealing with musculoskeletal problems.

The historical chapter really makes you understand why muscles and bones are the shape they are and why they function like they do. When you understand these things, you never forget them! I have been a chiropractor for 33 years and realised over 15 years ago locomootion important it was to look at patients’ movement patterns, gait function and muscle strength and weakness, michayd and inhibition. If you ignore these aspects of a patient, you do them a great disservice and you cannot possibly help them to reduce recurrences of back pain.

This is a unique opportunity to read about locmotion of these potential contributions to patients’ joint pains in one book – I have never read a book that brings all of these subjects together before along with treatment protocols.

The author has illustrated this book with drawings that show how the mechanics of huuman body change with particular problems; how to best examine muscle length and strength and treatments.

All patients walk and they all have gait problems – we need to understand the effect these have huan the body as a whole and this book does just that. If you want to reduce the tendency to chronicity in a patient using an evidence based, highly readable book then this is a must in your clinic library. See all 36 reviews.
