In this course, students learn about human movement, including the principles of basic physics and biomechanics. Students examine the relationship of structures (skeletal, joint, neural, muscle) to function and examine normal and abnormal movement. Emphasis will be placed on functional application to provide a foundation and rationale for therapeutic interventions necessary for the physical therapist assistant. Laboratory experiences correlate to the lectures, which include the study of the head and trunk, extremities, posture and gait.
