How the human body functions as a mechanical movement generator; the design and function of joints and muscles and principles of mechanics applied to human movement. Common injuries to the musculoskeletal system, how these injuries might occur, and what effect they have on movement patterns. Laboratory methods including techniques for palpation and evaluation of movement. Laboratory Fees.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to: 1. Define terms associated with basic human movement; 2. Describe human movement and position using standardized terminology; 3. Describe the different joint types in the human body, both in structure and function; 4. Describe the organization and function of muscle tissue; 5. Explain the concepts of synergy and muscle substitution; 6. Relate the effects of neuromuscular damage to movement dysfunction; 7. Explain the principles of overuse injuries; 8. Name all muscles and associated motor nerves producing any given movement of the upper extremity; 9. Explain the details of hand function; 10. Describe the mechanics of respiratory function; 11. Describe the inter-relating functions of abdominal and hip muscles; 12. Name all muscles and associated motor nerves producing any given movement of the lower extremity; 13. Be able to describe human movement in terms of Newton’s Laws of Motion; 14. Apply the principles of basic trigonometry, vectors, and torques to human movement; 15. Describe and contrast the basic physics of linear and rotational movement; 16. Describe and analyze components of human gait.
