Course Descriptions

MOT-260, Movement Therapies

This class combines student learning with client education/rehabilitation techniques. Students study common movements their clients experience in every day life. Students learn to identify the kinesiology and anatomy of these movements. An understanding will be developed about how these movements performed repetitively can contribute to postural dysfunction that can lead to pain and discomfort. The student experientially learns different movement exercises, stretches, and strengthening exercises that will be used in the clinical setting to help the client rehabilitate muscles and muscle groups that may be weak and chronically short and tight. Functional fitness will be explored to enhance balance and stability.
