PHTH 106 - Kinesiology II
Second part of the two-part course in the study of human movement. Rational anatomy and kinesiology of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine, and pelvis are discussed. Principles of kinesiology are applied to posture and gait. PREREQUISITE(S): PHTH 101 , PHTH 102 , PHTH 103 , PHTH 104 , PHTH 105 , PHTH 112 , PHTH 113 , PHTH 114 , and PHTH 116 . COREQUISITE(S): PHTH 201 . One hour lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Formerly PT 106.
2 semester hours
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Describe the mechanical principles of kinetics as they relate to forces and loading in a musculoskeletal context.
- Describe the relationship between the loading and direction of forces and movement in a musculoskeletal context.
- Integrate the principles of physical laws and biomechanical principles to respiration, posture, and gait.
- Apply mechanical principles to movement of the spine and pelvis.
- Identify muscle origins, insertions, actions and nerve supply of the spine and pelvis accurately.
- Measure and record active, passive and functional range of motion, muscle length and muscle strength of the spine and pelvis accurately.
- Describe normal patterns of muscular, skeletal, and peripheral nervous system development across the lifespan in respiration, posture, and gait.
- Construct an accurate and complete kinematic analysis of a movement pattern applied to respiration, posture, and gait.
- Propose a clinical intervention (eg, resisted exercise, stretching, etc) to address dysfunctional patterns of movement in respiration, posture, and gait.
