Exercise is an integral part of our culture, ranging from backyard games to
world-class competitions. Regardless of the competitive level of any
athletic activity, the human body adapts to meet physical challenges,
whether throwing or catching a ball, performing a routine on the balance
beam, or simply running around the track. Along with the physical stress of
these activities sometimes come injuries.

This course exposes students to the growing field of exercise physiology
and sports medicine. Students study the anatomical structure and function
of the body's bones, muscles, cardiovascular system, and respiratory
system. They also explore trends in rehabilitation and surgery for common
injuries in a variety of sports and innovative methods to prevent these
injuries. This course includes lab work to explore such topics as muscle
function (involving frog dissection), aerobic and anaerobic threshold, and
electrolyte balance. Students also take blood pressure and evaluate
electrocardiogram (EKG) measurements, as well as participate in field trips
to sports medicine or physical therapy clinics.
