This course is for anyone wishing to learn the fundamentals of the Musculo-Skeletal systems and functional anatomy. The course comprises home study plus a practical and observational understanding of anatomy and is is suitable for sports-care practitioners, sports massage students, personal trainers, runners, etc.
You will be shown the 206 bones that make up the skeletal system, how muscles and bones develop, repair, and function together to bring about stability and locomotion. We will explain the divisions of the skeletal system, categories of bones, types of joints and the muscles and tendons that support them. Study notes, diagrams and practical exercises during the training will help you learn 45 of the main muscles in the human body, discover how they contract, where they attach, how to palpate them, what actions they bring about, and how to stretch them. We will also discuss exercises that focus on key muscle groups giving you a sound understanding of functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal systems.
