Interesting Look at Human Gait 28 octobre 2014
Par Daphine - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The average person may not give much thought to how they walk or what exactly makes walking possible. But if you are a physical therapist, a massage therapist, a chiropractor, an osteopath, or any type of holistic practitioner, you know that everything in the body is connected, including gait.

Author James Earls has created an analysis of the human gait that is investigative and multi-dimensional in "Born to Walk." He presents a clear vision of what happens when a person's whole body walks, with all bones, joints, and tissues working together. But why do humans walk the way they do? What led to the unique human gait? Earls addresses these questions in a way that is easy to understand for those new to the concepts, but not so basic that those in movement-based fields won't find a lot of great information to incorporate into their practices.

Admittedly, there are many schools of thought to body mechanics, and there were a few things that conflict with my training, which started years ago when I find came across Human Movement Potential: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation. I was particularly surprised not to read any mention of "Muscular Chains", which was developed by one of our key anatomists, Francoise Mézières in 1947. Earls doesn't know how much he is missing!

A particularly interesting section is the analysis of Da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man", the iconic image of man's anatomy. Connecting the mechanics of the body to key points in history is one of the things that makes Born to Walk an engaging and educational read. You won't find any boring prose here.

Eye Opening 27 novembre 2014

Eye opening book. Takes Myers' Anatomy Trains and shows us how amazing a process walking is, and how we can become more efficient. As a track and field coach I was also easily able to apply some of what I learned about fascia and movement to my coaching.

Well researched and well written. It's a difficult subject but one that James Earls tackles with enthusiasm. He brings a easily understood clarity to the badly misunderstood theories of how we walk. Yes, we were born to walk, but that often gets lost in the explanation. Here, it doesn't.

function meets fascia 23 octobre 2014
Par Darren - Publié sur

Nice synopsis and integration of fascial and functional concepts. A recommended read for any movement based health care provider or trainer and an essential read for non-movement based practitioners.

Par Brent Russell - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is very attractive - wonderfully laid out and with excellent illustrations - but it has serious content problems. Should you buy it and read it? That depends on who you are and what you'd get from it. If you're interested in tensegrity and the mechanics of fascia, and you're a health professional or lay person with no academic background in gait, then go for it. If you do have a background in biomechanics and gait, as I do, you may find this book as maddening as I do. This book needed peer reviewer. It's loaded with errors ("lateral" should have said "medial"), confusing or misleading statements (a sentence that say something different or contradictory from what the paragraph seemed headed toward), and sometimes just outright wrong. Which is this? "One of the hallmarks of efficient walking is the absence of active muscular contraction..." (I would think the absence of muscular contraction would be the hallmark of efficiently just lying there on the floor.) Still, Earls has some good ideas in between the parts that make me want to throw the book across the room. Maybe a second edition could evolve into something better.
