The purpose of this course is to explore the strategies that are commonly implemented by allied health professionals, strength and conditioning coaches, and exercise specialists to correct imbalances of the human musculoskeletal system. This course is designed to help students understand the interaction of kinesiological concepts, pathophysiology, corrective exercise selection, and exercise programming. Theory and application will be placed on body regions, as well as select populations. The philosophies and approaches discussed in current literature and through various governing bodies (e.g., National Academy of Sports Medicine) in this field will be discussed. Emphasis is placed on class participation, group work, critical thinking and discussion.
