About the Video

Dr. DeRosa will discuss and demonstrate through power point and video the different fascial layers and muscles of the lower and upper extremity done through human dissection. This highly informative session will allow you to have a greater visual understanding of how the muscle are attached and their function related to human movement. This will allow you to create more functional weight-training programs since you will know the muscles structure and function, at a clinically anatomical level.
