Functional Anatomy uses the basic structural knowledge provided in Human Anatomy to develop an understanding of the functional significance of the structures of the musculoskeletal system, within a movement setting (covering mechanical properties and functional characteristics). In addition to normal function, mechanisms of and adaptations to, common injuries, disease and rehabilitation is discussed. Although this course covers areas of dysfunction and the biological effects of rehabilitation, it is NOT a course in clinical anatomy, or musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
