PT 731 Neuromuscular Impairment II 6 sem. hrs.
This course is the last 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. It is a direct extension of PT 730 (Neuromuscular Impairments I), continuing with diagnoses along the neural axis, progressing from the central nervous system and moving to more of a focus on peripheral nervous system dysfunction. Students will gain knowledge, skills, and 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 742. The class will include the following types of learning experiences: traditional lecture, small group discussion, interactive group projects, and active lab experiences.
