PT 730 Neuromuscular Impairment I 6 sem. hrs.
This course is the third within a series of four presenting an integrated approach to relevant physiologic, anatomic, theoretical, medical, and therapeutic concepts related to entry-level neurologic physical therapist practice in both adult and pediatric populations. The two Neuromuscular Impairments courses will operate from a top-down model across the neural axis, focusing initially on central nervous system diagnoses of cortical dysfunction, injury and recovery. Students will gain knowledge, skills, and the capacity for the clinical reasoning necessary to complete a comprehensive neuromuscular examination and develop a comprehensive plan for intervention based on current motor control and learning theories. Pediatric content is interwoven within the course setting the stage for PT 740-01. The class will include the following types of learning experiences: traditional lecture, small group discussion, interactive group projects, and active lab experiences.
