Applied anatomy of the locomotor system

The skeletal, articular and muscular systems provide support and strength to the body and give humans our ability to move. The Motion and Strength course offers an exploration of the normal structure and function of the bones, joints, and muscles of the human body. It further illustrates their importance by making reference to diseases and disorders that may adversely affect the structure and function - hence the overall effectiveness - of the locomotor system. The course is designed to serve as a transition between descriptive anatomy knowledge and clinical anatomy skills. The coursework consists of two parts: it begins with the detailed description of bones, joints, and muscles at the cellular and tissue levels of organization; followed by a regional discussion of the human skeletal, articular, and muscular systems in different body parts. Each lesson features integrated basic, functional, and radiological anatomy materials, accompanied by links to verified learning resources that contain examples of the anatomical knowledge used in the medical setting. The course structure is intended to ease the memory strain typically associated with Anatomy studies, as it is much easier to remember relevant facts if they have an immediate particular meaning attached to them. The coursework is ideal for medicine, physical therapy, or physical education and sports science undergraduate students. In addition, orthopedics, sports medicine, or rehabilitation postgraduate interns, may find the content informative and interesting and use it either to deepen or refresh their knowledge. All learners should note that the content is not intended to be a source of or substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, and it does not endorse or recommend any specific tests, procedures, or opinions.
