PTRS 711: Applied Kinesiology and Biomechanics (4)

The course involves a study of joint structure, joint function, and the biomechanical principles underlying the kinetics and kinematics of human motion, including normal gait and selected pathological gait patterns. Emphasis is placed on the interaction between biomechanical and physiological factors in musculoskeletal and neuromuscular function, and the application of kinesiological principles to clinical physical therapy situations. Prerequisite: Successful completion of semester 1 of DPT curriculum, or consent of the instructor. LEC
