After teaching this course, the faculty agrees that the objectives are able
to be met at the 3 credit level and that 3 credits are more appropriate for
this course than the 6 credits initially proposed.
This course is an in-depth
study in the recognition, examination, and intervention of disorders and
injuries of the musculoskeletal system with emphasis on the spine. A problem solving
approach is followed with application of the evidence-based practice and
functional models in the management of impairments with inclusion of the
following elements of patient/client management: examination, evaluation,
diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention. Sessions focus on advanced
examination and intervention skills, including the performance of
joint-specific special tests, manual therapy techniques, orthotics, and
impairment-specific therapeutic exercises. Clinical reasoning skills for the advanced
orthopedic physical therapist will be emphasized throughout the course.
