Biomechanics in Spinal Manipulation
Video/Blog/Podcast/Commercial Biomechanics Project Instructions
Here are the instructions for the video/audio project. 1 assignment/group.
Biomechanics video/audio Instructions: READ and FOLLOW completely
Audience: Your peers and family members
Goal of the Video/commercial/Podcast: To explain a biomechanical concept to your peers and family members to explain how this can either increase/improve performance or decrease injury, or show/explain how a certain way of performing a skill can increase risk for injury.

Your group will create a final project that will teach your peers and family something about the application of biomechanics as it relates to improving performance or decreasing injuries. You will teach them by using the science.
You will synthesize information from the lectures, book, your research, etc… to have information related to your topic to present.
To support your ideas and synthesis, cite a minimum of 3 articles (ex: Didier, 2018; Stavrinos, et al, 2013) from your library scientific research article search. When you refer to the information in a scientific article, do not just copy and “quote” sentences of information.

Is the assignment clear and persuasive, with thought and effort, and do the authors synthesize the material using biomechanics concepts and terminology? Do the listeners/readers learn about a specific concept?
