Many factors are important for the body to be able to achieve a healthful state and recover from an injury or illness. One that is often overlooked is the ability of the body to re-establish or maintain proper fluid dynamics. The body has multiple mechanisms that need to work in a coordinated manner for body to be able to clean up debris and deliver substances and nutrients in and around the cells. In this class we will explore how the musculoskeletal, lymphatic, circulatory, renal, and respiratory systems integrate to maintain proper fluid dynamics which enables appropriate cellular function and improves health.
Learning Objectives (upon completion)
- The student will understand the physiological components of the fluid dynamic system.
- The student will understand the anatomical structures that are involved in promoting proper fluid dynamics.
- The student will understand how to perform various evaluation methods to determine if somatic dysfunctions may be compromising proper fluid dynamics.
- The student will understand how to perform various treatment techniques to correct somatic dysfunctions that may be compromising proper fluid dynamics.
