BI 532 Biomechanics and Kinesiology (3)
This course is designed to study and analyze human movement, in a regional format, relevant to the physical therapy practice. More specifically, the course encompasses biomechanics, anatomy, and neuromuscular physiology. Additionally, students are provided with the opportunity to analyze motor performance as it is encountered in physical therapy practice. Analysis of forces and laws of physics shall be applied to knowledge of motion, posture and gait. The use of clinical cases assists in fostering the clinical application of knowledge to physical therapy practice. This course is complemented by the lab based course PT 546.
