Course overview and learning objectives

Bio-mechanics” is the study of the mechanics of a living body, and the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure in order to produce movement. This course provides fundamental knowledge in understanding how the joints and muscles of the human body interact during motion.

LCO’s Biomechanics course starts with a comprehensive review of musculoskeletal anatomy. Concepts of statics and dynamics for human activities as well as the mechanics of tissues help build an understanding of the principles of biomechanics. Special emphasis is placed on the advanced anatomy, mechanical properties and structural behavior of the spine and major joints.

Main topics include structure and function relationships in tissues and organs, the application of stress and strain analysis to biological tissues, analysis of forces in human function and movement, as well as energy and power in human activity. 

At the completion of the study, you will be able to develop a safe and cohesive practice for clients with special needs (i.e. post injury recovery, joints or muscular problems, or degenerative spinal conditions).
