AHPT 820 - Kinesiology/Biomechanics

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Conduct of the Course: The format of the course may include but is not limited to lecture, case studies, small group and cooperative learning experiences.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of all prior coursework or with permission from the department
This course will examine the interaction of bones, joints, muscles, and external forces that are responsible for movement. Students will study the major joint complexes of the human body. Learning objectives for each joint complex will include the basics of kinetics, biomechanics in association with muscles, and connective tissues and bones connected to that specific joint. The origins, insertions, actions of the muscles, and in some joint complexes, patterns of physical dysfunction will also be discussed as it relates to normal movement.
