Discussion of muscle and joint function beyond simple actions, including physics and biomechanics of the human body. Students gain understanding of the body in motion and how anatomical structures work together to create different types of motion.

Activities include inspecting, palpating, and moving these structures, enabling the student to link theory with experience to help further understanding of the human body and its movement potential.

Students are introduced to imbalances or dysfunctions associated with soft tissue that are most commonly treated by manual and exercise therapists.
