PT 508 - Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy II

This is the second course within a three-course sequence. This course will build on the student’s physical therapy examination and intervention skills, expanding these to intermediate level musculoskeletal conditions including a focus on physical therapy classification systems for musculoskeletal conditions of the spine. Students will also learn about physical therapy management of patients with lower extremity amputations, lower extremity prosthetics, orthotics, and physical therapy management of pediatric musculoskeletal conditions. Emphasis continues to be placed on musculoskeletal differential diagnosis, clinical decision-making, and the components of patient/client management, consistent with the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF).
