TMA 210 - Fundamentals of Kinesiology

3 Credits, 4 Contact Hours
2 lecture periods 2 lab periods

A survey of the biology of movement. Includes a review of the skeletal and muscular systems, planes of movement and terms of anatomical reference; structure and function of joints; and origins, insertions and actions of muscles of the trunk and limbs. Also includes demonstration and analysis of normal and abnormal movement.
