3.0 Semester Hours
This course is the study of the skeletal and muscular systems and their relation to movement, including an introduction to homeostatis and disease. The course focus begins with the study of the anatomical aspects of movement, with exploration of the pectoral girdle, shoulder joint and upper extremities, followed by a study of the pelvic girdle and lower extremities prior to an analysis of the trunk. A brief study of the biomechanical factors of posture and the pathological processes of the organ systems possibly encountered during treatments concludes this course.
