Having an Understanding of Human Biomechanics is Essential Knowledge for Clinical Practice

Develop your understanding of human biomechanics with these excellent courses by Tolulope Adenji, a Physiotherapist based in Nigeria.

Biomechanics is the science of movement. When applied to a human body biomechanics provides us with an understanding of how muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones work together to produce movement.

Biomechanical principles play a major role in physiotherapy practice and in this new course available on Physioplus, you will go through the foundations of essential physiotherapy knowledge related to biomechanics.

The Tutor – Tolulope Adenjii

Tolulope is a physiotherapist from Nigeria specializing in geriatric physiotherapy. Having studied at the Obafemi Awolowo University and a terminal stage of MSc PT (Awaiting defense) in University of Maiduguri.

Tolulope has a specialized in ageing science and geriatrics practice including Brain modulation for pain, motor and cognitive recovery and enhancement and biomechanics as it pertains to ageing. He also has extensive clinical experience in humanitarian and physiotherapy institutions.

Tolulope is currently the CEO of Ganador Healthcare Services Ltd in Maiduguri, Borno State Nigeria. And he is also a practising locum physiotherapist with a Federal Medical Centre Nguru, Yobe state, Nigeria.

The Courses

These course have been accredited by the APCSASPTPTA. They are also recognised by CORU, the HCPC.

Introduction to Human Biomechanics – External Forces
Human movement is complex. We are able to produce a variety of postures and movements that are made possible by our musculoskeletal biomechanics. Understanding human biomechanics is essential to every physiotherapist’s knowledge base. There are two types of biomechanics; internal biomechanics and external biomechanics. This course focuses on external biomechanics. Tolulope Adeniji explains and discusses the essential basic human biomechanics concepts that every Physiotherapist needs to understand in order to practice effectively.

Biomechanical Core Concepts

Introduction to Human Biomechanics – Internal Forces
The internal forces related to human biomechanics are a set of key concepts that help us to explain and describe human movement. Understanding these principles is essential for physiotherapists as they are relevant to all aspects of musculoskeletal injury and dysfunction. Join Tolulope Adeniji as he discusses the internal biomechanics of the human musculoskeletal system.
