Kinesiology is the study of movement, and the science behind the movement of our body against forces of gravity and resistive external forces.  Kinematics deals with movement of the body without regards to external forces being applied to them(Neuman pg 4).  So looking at exercise design, kinematics does not represent a functional capacity for how […]

Understanding that the foot and ankle complex has the greatest contributing factor to the Human Movement System, hence the greatest influence on each of the systems that Clark et al (2011) describe, any arthrokinomatic dysfunction or muscular imbalance, such as a decrease in control over the medial longitudinal arch, can result in an altered mechanical […]
