In discussing the pattern of recruitment in regards to muscle fiber type with increasing intensity, a runner could be an example of providing increasing intensities throughout the activity. As an example, as a runner begins his run, and the goal is a marathon, that runner starts at a moderate to slow pace(a jog), in which, […]
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 […]
The Hip joint serves as a dominant kinesiologic role in the human body and any dysfunction to the arthrokinematics can alter and can cause great difficulty in basic movements of “walking, dressing, driving a car, lifting and carrying loads and climbing stairs.” (Neumann, 2010). A very common dysfunction in the Human Movement System occurs due […]
What Creates Shoulder Problems? Analyzing the shoulder for proper arthrokinematics(joint movement), it is noted that the shoulder girdle, which is composed of the scapula and clavicle, provide the body with three degrees of arthrokinematics: Elevation and depression(raising and lowering), protraction and retraction(pulling the scapula away from the spine or towards the spine by rolling shoulders…...
The Beginnings of Lower Back Pain Throughout life, our body adapts to movements that we perform in normal daily living (motor learning), and our CNS becomes conditioned to activate certain muscle patterns to create this desired movement. Ideal alignment is crucial throughout each moveable joint and if any joint is out of alignment, the CNS…...
Understanding that the foot and ankle complex has the greatest contributing factor to the Human Movement System, any arthrokinomatic dysfunction or muscular imbalance, such as a decrease in control over the medial longitudinal arch, can result in an altered mechanical approach to the HMS leading to a possible cumulative injury cycle(Clark et al, 2011). The […]

What happens to the Human Movement System with injury, poor posture, and muscular imbalance? Looking at this question in regards to the Human Movement System, I believe that the foundation begins with the Neuromuscular Efficiency. That is, our body operates on the ability to create the right amount of force, on the right joint, […]
Joint dysfunctions that occur in the body begin by a breakdown in optimal neuromuscular control, which is comprised by three major components that occur simultaneously (Clark et al, 2011): 1. A normal length-tension relationship, which happens when the agonist has an optimal length that allows for the most actin and myosin attachments in the sarcomere […]
