DPT 6101 - Clinical BiomechanicsCredits: 1 Hr.
This course provides web enhanced delivery of information, demonstration, and laboratory instruction to provide an introduction to clinical biomechanics. Biological tissue reactions to force and stress will be discussed. Selected anatomical, structural, and functional properties of human tissues will be studied. This course will also explore the biomechanical issues of human movement including kinetics and kinematics. Emphasis will be placed on application of biomechanical principles to human movement as it relates to the practice of physical therapy.
