PT 749 - Physical Therapy Process - Selected Topics in Rehabilitation
(3 cr.) This course provides an in-depth background of the assessment and treatment of individuals with spinal cord injury, and individuals requiring a lower extremity orthotic or prosthetic device. Abnormal gait is presented as a foundation to understanding the function of orthotic or prosthetic devices. Students build on knowledge of the biomechanical concepts of normal gait, developed in Kinesiology II (HSC 341) to understand ambulation using prosthetic or orthotic devices. Assessment and treatment procedures are emphasized for individuals with peripheral vascular disease resulting in amputation, musculoskeletal deficiencies requiring orthotic management, or sensory-motor losses resulting from spinal cord injury. Every Year, Fall
