This guide is organized in sections by area of the body, from head and neck down to the ankle and foot. Each section has visual images of anatomy, movement, injuries and examples of the mechanism of select injuries. The majority of the images are of adults, but certain sections show pediatric anatomy (growth plate visuals), injuries and mechanisms. As an added bonus, anatomical system charts are included after the last section.
