What is the difference between human movement in biomechanics & kinesiology?

Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical laws and principles that govern human movement. It involves analyzing the forces, torques, and energy involved in movement and how they interact with the musculoskeletal system. It is concerned with understanding how the body moves, how it is affected by external forces, and how it adapts to different types of physical activity.

Kinesiology, on the other hand, is the study of human movement and how it is affected by physiological, psychological, and social factors. It looks at the biological, behavioral, and social aspects of movement and how they interact with each other. Kinesiology also includes the study of physical education, exercise science, sports medicine, and other related fields.

While both disciplines involve the study of human movement, biomechanics focuses more on the mechanical aspects of movement and how the body moves, while kinesiology looks at the broader context of movement and its impacts on overall health and well-being.
