KIN 505 - Activity, Injuries and Disease

Credits: 4

Sports and exercise are a part of American society and are used as entertainment, leisure activity as well as a means to better health. Unfortunately while we partake in these activities few individuals are aware of the risks they are exposing themselves to. In addition as more women engage in sports and exercise medical science is realizing that many conditions and injuries are gender specific. It is well known that women athletes deal with reproductive, orthopedic and nutritional issues that differ greatly from men. Also we know that individuals with varying diseases benefit greatly from exercise. This course will join, musculoskeletal anatomy, injuries, gender and special problems together to explain how an individual can enjoy activities safely. In addition this course addresses the interpretation of current medical literature and how to utilize new information.
