This course was designed to teach the concepts of mobility, stability, controlled mobility, and skill and how they all relate to movement.  In order to understand both biomechanical principles and foundational biomechanics, essential terms and principles behind movement must be understood first. By learning these fundamental concepts, the student will be able to interpret the biomechanics of movement within the spine, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle.

Differentiate among the three planes of movement, providing one example of each.  Distinguish the factors that can affect or interfere with the range of motion. Compare the different types of range of motion available within the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder joints.

Express what the scapulohumeral rhythm (SHR) is within the shoulder and its importance with shoulder flexion and shoulder abduction movements.
