CCN: PHT2120 Title: Applied Kinesiology Credit Hrs: 3.00
Description : 
This course is designed as part of a continuum in the application of anatomy to facilitate student analysis of functional movements with specific focus on the relationship between joint structure and function. Principles of biomechanics as it relates to human movement will be reviewed. Normal and pathological gait patterns are presented as well as normal and pathological movement patterns of the head, spine, pelvis, UE, and LE. Special tests which help identify specific deficits will be discussed. Case studies of various functional impairments with an emphasis on functional task analysis as well as therapeutic interventional approaches which help restore function are presented. Orthotic interventions for the spine and extremities are discussed with an emphasis on correcting pathological biomechanics.
