This learn topic explores Movement and the Movement System. The Movement System is an important concept for physiotherapists and physical therapists to understand; particularly those who seek to achieve the full potential of their critically important role in supporting a healthy society. Movement is the action of an entire system and its component parts; these include muscular, skeletal, neurologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and metabolic components. This learn topic will explore some of the basics of understanding movement and go on to explore the current thinking on Movement and the Movement System.
At the end of the learn topic there is the opportunity to have a go at the Movement quiz to earn a certificate to prove your knowledge on this subject.
So, grab a coffee and get ready to learn….
