PT 416 - Kinesiology and Biomechanics II

This second 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. The course will emphasize the understanding of the multiple factors that affect human motion, including biomechanics, physiology, age, gender, neurological function, and psychological function. 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 in further coursework dealing with patient management.
