OT 605

Functional Anatomy of the Limbs and Trunk

Essential gross anatomy of the musculo-skeletal systems of the limbs and trunk, including peripheral nerves and vascular sturctures, is studied as a basis for understanding and analyzing human functional movement. Biomechanical principles of human motion are studied, as well as kinesiologic analysis of movement. Introduction to goniometry (ROM--range of motion measurement) and manual muscle testing (MMT) are also covered.
