The course was designed to teach the student how to interpret the fundamental concepts of mobility and stability as it relates to how the ankle, knee, hip, and lumbar spine move. To differentiate among an open-chain movement and a closed chain movement providing one example of each. To distinguish the difference between a mobilizer and stabilizer muscle while providing one example of each. Finally, to analyze the different parts of the kinetic chain during both static and dynamic movements.
