A&P #2: The Skeletal and Muscular Systems
$90.00 – $100.00
The Skeletal and Muscular Systems covers the internal structure, development, and functioning of the bones and muscles of the human body.
The Skeletal and Muscular Systems covers the internal structure, development, and functioning of the bones and muscles of the human body. The names of individual bones and muscles and what they do are not covered. Instead, the material provides insights into how your manual manipulations can affect the health and vitality of these two tissues which are of primary importance to the practicing massage therapist. You will learn how bones respond to the stresses acting upon them, for example, how bone spurs form and how you can affect them with bodywork. In the chapter on muscle tissue topics include “Connective Tissue Components of Muscle,” “The Neuromuscular Junction,” and “Oxygen Debt and Fatigue” among others.
All installments of The Living Body Series® are in the format of written text material with appropriate diagrams, much like a standard A&P textbook. Unlike standard textbooks, however, there are insights into the material that you, as a practicing bodyworker, will find most interesting and useful. Being well versed in this information will allow you to talk more confidently with your clients as well as with other health care professionals. Practice questions at the end of each chapter will help you review the information and deepen your understanding of the material. These are for your use only and do not need to be submitted.
This course comes with a 25-question, multiple-choice exam which must be returned for grading. Passing grade is 18 out of 25 (72%). If for some reason you do not pass, a copy of the questions you missed will be sent back to you. Upon successfully passing the exam, your course completion will be entered into the CEBroker System and you will receive a Certificate of Completion in the mail.
This course is approved for 12 CE credits by the following:
