Course Description:
The human body is a complicated machine with several parts that directly and indirectly affect one another. Learn about the fundamental parts of the muscular, skeletal and neuromuscular systems and how they synergistically affect one another. This foundation course will teach you interactive anatomy and kinesiology to prepare you to understand how to perform a movement assessment.

Course Objectives:
After completing this course you will be able to:
  1. Identify the primary bones, joints, muscles and connective tissue in the upper and lower body that are involved with movement.
  2. Identify the four primary rotator cuff muscles and identify the primary functional anatomy behind daily movements such as sit to stand, getting dressed, reaching, walking providing clarity on how the movement is supposed to occur vs. dysfunction.
  3. Identify the primary functional anatomy and muscles behind the movement in sport specific movements such as swimming, tennis, volleyball and other sports providing clarity on how the movement is supposed to occur vs. dysfunction.
  4. Be able to perform a biomechanical analysis of every day movements as well as common sport movements.
  5. Identify the areas that have been shown both in science and evidenced based research that break down and are injured called ?the weak links? of the human kinematic chain.
  6. Be able to perform common functional assessment tests of each body part supported with research.
  7. Understand and learn about the fundamentals of biomechanics of various structures and tissues including; connective tissue, tendons and bones.
  8. Understand how all systems of the body interact and affect one another.
