This course is an introduction to the study of the movements of the human body. Students examine the major joint complexes of the body, including the skeletal, muscular and neurological contributions to movement at each joint, and consider the physical forces that influence human movement. Students also observe, analyze, and document using SOAP format the skilled movement patterns needed for occupational performance in daily life. The course material is presented in lecture and laboratory format and is supplemented with hands-on sessions for practicing range of motion and manual muscle testing skills on peers. Skeletal and anatomical models and audiovisual materials will complement the instructional process.
