Introduction to the discipline of Kinesiology and an examination of the study of physical activity from the perspectives of professional practice, research, and experience. This course is a prerequisite for all students interested in pursuing a major in Kinesiology.
An course in principles, procedures, and techniques in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. A one-credit laboratory experience is available in addition to the regular course. Co-requisite: Anatomy, instructor permission.
Independent Study for undergraduates working in cooperation with a faculty member.
This course is designed to provide the athletic training student with a foundation of the theoretical fundamentals and principles of the therapeutic modalities used in the physical medicine environment. A systematic evidenced based approach of the how and why of the application of rehabilitation techniques will be addressed including theory and clinical techniques used to enhance the treatment and rehabilitation of injuries.
Independent Study for master's level students working in cooperation with a faculty member.
The course provides fundamental clinical knowledge of commonly utilized diagnostic imaging and pharmacotherapies within athletic training. This information may be applied through an interprofessional approach to healthcare of the physically active requiring an understanding of normal and diseased states via various diagnostic imaging techniques as well as the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
