Course Description

This course utilizes content from the textbook “Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System” Second Edition by Donald A. Neumann, PT, PhD, FAPTA © 2010, published by Elsevier.

Kinesiology is the study of human movement, typically pursued within the context of sport, art or medicine.  To a varying degree this course relates to all three areas.  Taking an engaging approach to explore fundamental principles in vivid detail and clarifying the link between the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system to help ensure clear and confident understanding.

Throughout this second edition, information has been updated to reflect the essential topics of kinesiology, including a review of basic structure and functions of the musculoskeletal system and the biomechanical and quantitative aspects of Kinesiology.  You can expect specific anatomic details and kinesiology of the three regions of the body, upper extremity (from the shoulder to the hand), axial skeleton (head, trunk, and spine), and the lower extremity (from the hip to the foot).  You will also find highlighted throughout the course the interaction between muscles and joints.
 
To better meet your professional needs, this fully illustrated text of 681 pages has been carefully broken down by sections into 4 modules.  Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).
