This is the second course of a two-part sequence that introduces the student to the basic principles of biomechanics and kinesiology as they pertain to human movement. The course provides an overview of the osteology of the head and upper limbs that enables identification of anatomical landmarks through use of palpation. The student receives detailed instruction in the myology and neurology of the face, shoulder girdle, and the upper extremities. The laboratory portion of the course provides an exploration of manual muscle testing techniques and some basic therapeutic exercise principles that can be applied to the face and the upper extremities. The course also covers basic neuroanatomy, introductory concepts of motor control, and motor relearning as they relate to physical therapy.
