Glossary Term


Kinesiology is the study of human movement. "The Prime Assumption" is a fundamental concept in biomechanics that states that everything crossing a joint will have an impact on joint motion during any joint action. This means that muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and even the surrounding tissues will all affect how a joint moves. Understanding the Prime Assumption is crucial for developing effective rehabilitation and exercise programs and preventing injuries.

Kinesiology: Kinesiology is the study of human movement, and generally refers to understanding the mechanics of the human movement system. How do the muscular, skeletal, fascial, cardiovascular, and nervous systems work together to generate force and motion?
