PT 415 - Kinesiology and Biomechanics I


This first course in a two-course sequence presents an intensive study of the principles of kinesiology and biomechanics, particularly in relationship to movement disorders that are encountered in physical therapy practice. The course will emphasize the understanding of the multiple factors that affect human motion through the life span. The overall goals of the course are to develop
the ability to analyze normal functional movement, to determine the pathomechanics of various movement dysfunctions, and to learn to incorporate kinesiological and biomechanical principles as a tool for solving patient problems.
