What kinesiology do:
Like any science, kinesiology has precise laws. The laws are borrowed from other sciences (physiology, physics, biology, etc.) but also it has its own laws which were created based on the application of the above in the context of human physical activity.
Biomechanics or “mechanical kinesiology”: it is the application of mechanics laws to the study of movement. Biomechanics means also the physical motion analysis, applying physical laws of motion to the human physical activity.
Kinesioloy represents the law of physiology applied to the study of human movement. Under this component of theoretical kinesiology are exposed: immediate functional responses and timely adaptations to the physical activity of the body’s organs and systems (cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, endocrine, blood, thermoregulation, etc.); how is performed and consumed the “energy” in physical activity; what are the limits of physical performance and fatigue; physical responses to stress; fitness level.
Psychomotor behaviour: its study material consists in the role and mechanisms of the central nervous system in the processes of control and execution of voluntary movements. Also, it is preoccupied by the implications of neurological abnormalities and / or mental control processes and execution of the physical activities.
Why is kinesiology important:
Kinesiology improves performance for safe movements, use movements for therapy, helps to evaluate exercises.
