EXSC 440

Biomechanics of Sports Injuries

This course is designed to study the mechanical bases of musculoskeletal injury, to better understand the mechanisms that seem to cause injury, the effect injury has on the musculoskeletal structures, and hopefully, to study how injury may be prevented. Many different types of injury will be discussed with the students responsible for leading these discussions. Students will write a review article on an injury condition and present their findings to the class.

Prerequisites: EXSC 336 or permission of instructor.
