DPT 860 Neuromuscular PT III

2 credits

A continuation of Neuromuscular Physical Therapy II, this course will build on skills developed in Neuromuscular PT II, including those used in examination and treatment focus on the examination of individuals with dysfunction of the neuromuscular system. As in Neuromuscular PT II, this course will focus on neuromuscular control, impairments in body structure and function, activity limitations and participation restrictions. The course will also address the selection, performance, and analysis of selected intervention strategies for patients with disorders involving the neuromuscular system that were not discussed in Neuromuscular PT II. Laboratory sessions will emphasize the refinement of examination and intervention skills necessary for the successful examination, evaluation and intervention of clients across the lifespan. This course will also address the importance of screening and consultation to prevent the development of neuromuscular dysfunction.
