Kinesiology emphasizes the application of mechanical and physiological principles to the human movement system. Mechanical properties of biological tissue, kinematics, kinetics, muscle actions, and joint structure and function are examined. Students will perform detailed analyses of normal and abnormal movement and alignment of the spine and extremities. Gait and postural analyses also are conducted, with specific attention given to individual joint motion and muscle activity during the swing and stance phases of gait.
