The principles of human motion as they are influenced by individual and coordinated muscle function. Anatomy is studied extensively. Neuromuscular control and biomechanical principles of movement are presented. Activities of daily living are used for functional analysis. Application of the principles of human motion as they are influenced by individual and coordinated muscle function. Palpation/location of muscles and surface anatomy. Biomechanical principles of movement are practiced and applied.

Course Outcomes
1. Identify the basic movements of the human body and its joints 2. Describe the location of various structures relative to each other using appropriate terminology 3. Describe the a) origins, insertion and bellies of selected muscles and the line of pull b) specific peripheral nerves c) specific bony landmarks d) specific ligaments e) joint motion and type of joint 4. Identify muscles and their actions in body movement with regard to prime movers, fixators, accessories, synergists, reverse action, static, concentric or eccentric contractions, antagonists/agonist, neutralizes, active and passive insufficiency and relationship of origin to insertion (line of pull) 5. Discuss the arthrokinematics for each synovial joint discussed 6. Recognize the basic components of correct body mechanics 7. Define and apply to selected problems the terms of center of gravity (mass), line of gravity, base of support, stability/equilibrium, mass, force vector, lever arm and resistance arm, axis, mechanical advantage 8. List examples of the mechanisms for maintenance of stability (equilibrium) of the human body 9. Problem-solve the location of neurological disorder from provided information 10. Describe the structure and function of selected neurological tissues 11. Describe the general location and function of selected parts of the brain and spinal cord 12. Differentiate between upper motor and lower motor neuron disease 13. Describe the function and location of selected structures of peripheral nerve system
