Prerequisite: Successful completion of all second-year coursework in the DPT Program. Corequisite: PT 776L. This course will provide graduate students in physical therapy with an opportunity to improve their skills in evaluating, analyzing and treating patients with musculoskeletal pain using the current concept and techniques of movement system impairment (MSI). An emphasis is placed on (a) analysis of normal and abnormal movements based on normal kinesiology, biomechanics and neuromuscular control; (b) evaluation, classification/diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal pain of the spine, lower extremity, upper extremity using MSI concepts; and (c) integration of MSI into the traditional physical therapy management of musculoskeletal system. This course will also focus on the current scientific literature related to diagnostic accuracy, efficacy and effectiveness of MSI related to musculoskeletal pain. Additionally, current concepts of motor control and motor learning will also be integrated into this class.
