DPT 511 - Clinical Biomechanics II


4 credit(s)
DPT 510 and 511 are designed to provide the student with the biomechanical and histological basis for understanding normal and pathological movement. All of DPT 510 and part of DPT 511 are organized by anatomical region, and although each region is discussed as a unit, every effort is made to illustrate continuities among regions. The discussion of each region includes sections on normal biomechanics and the application of biomechanics to pathological motion. Each section incorporates units on goniometry, muscle testing, stretching, design of exercise programs and palpation. The remainder of DPT 511 covers posture, scoliosis, and gait analysis.
