ATTR 517 Pathomechanics I

This course provides an in-depth study of the musculoskeletal and mechanical aspects of anatomical structures of the lower extremity, pelvis and lumbar spine, as related to human movement and function. This course will apply physics concepts, tissue responses and adaptations, and general biomechanics in preparation for rehabilitation techniques, exercise prescription and for evaluation and recognition of injury. Movement of individual joints, kinetic chain and whole-body motion will be analyzed. Students will be able to comprehend a variety of lower extremity disorders through the analysis of musculoskeletal mechanics, applied neurology, articular function, biomechanical principles within movement and material/biomechanical properties of biological tissues.
