PT 771 Adult Neurotherapeutics

This course, together with Functional Neuroanatomy (PT 672 ) and the related clinical education experiences, will prepare the entry-level practitioner to evaluate and treat adult clients with movement dysfunction due to neurologic damage. The ability to evaluate and treat this patient population is based on understanding in three content areas: 1) theoretical models of how human movement is controlled under normal and pathological conditions; 2) knowledge of the etiology, clinical presentation, and natural history of recovery from neurological damage; and 3) techniques to examine and intervene in the most common movement impairments and functional limitations due to neurologic damage. This course also provides extensive laboratory experience examining and intervening with real and simulated patients with movement dysfunction due to neurologic damage. Credit(s): 4
