DPT 612 - Neuromuscular Sys Exam/Intervention


4 credit(s)
Clinical application of observation skills for an individual’s motor function within environmental contexts and treatment intervention when a motor dysfunction exists will be explored. Examination skills will focus on development of movement analysis for motor control dysfunction across the life-span. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF, WHO, 2002) will be used as the framework with emphasis placed on participation in meaningful contexts. Documentation, goal writing, and measurement of outcomes will be incorporated. Clinical decision making will be developed as the learner selects, applies, and justifies treatment interventions for specific patient-centered functional goals. Interventions presented will include remediation, compensation, facilitation, motor learning, and entry-level decision making regarding orthotics for patients presenting with neurologic impairments. Laboratory components will focus on identifying typical motor development and abilities across the lifespan and application of examination of and interventions for patients presenting with cerebral vascular accident, traumatic brain injury, and vestibular and balance disturbances.
