This course builds on all concepts presented in Term I and integrates those with new concepts and treatment skills such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, hydro-therapy and pelvic and cervical traction.
This course provides information on common adult neurologic disorders and pediatric disorders. Emphasis is placed on etiology, pathology and a clinical picture of conditions such as Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, CVA, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. Common testing, medical procedures, rehabilitation and prognosis of the conditions are integrated into the discussions. Scientific concepts introduced in the prior year as well as during prerequisites are also discussed: neurophysiology, psychology, musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
This course provides laboratory time for the practice of neurorehabilitative techniques and care presented in PHT 2162. It includes competency-based skill checks and lab practicals which focus on demonstration of appropriate manual and physical dexterity in conjunction with good problem-solving skills. Students handle conditions discussed in PHT 2162 in a manner which is safe, effective and efficient for the patient and their caregiver.
This course will emphasize the basics of therapeutic exercise including affective, cognitive and psychomotor performance of passive, active-assistive, active, resistive and stretching exercises. It will explore the variety of ways these exercises may be performed (manual vs. mechanical) and considerations leading to modification (stage of tissue state and recovery, subjective and objective findings). Prior and concurrent knowledge and skills will be incorporated and utilized throughout.
This course provides laboratory time for the practice of exercise techniques and development of problem-solving skills required in modification of treatments within the physical therapy assistant's scope of practice as presented in PHT 2224. It includes competency-based skill checks and lab tests which focus on demonstration of the appropriate manual and physical dexterity and accurate determination of the appropriate exercise and intensity required by the patient. Students learn procedures that are safe, efficient and effective for the patient and caregiver.
This is the third full-time clinical course in a series of three clinical courses. Students are assigned to one of three possible facility types (acute care, ortho/outpatient or long-term care) not assigned in PHT 1800L or PHT 2810L. This course is scheduled for the last five weeks of the curriculum prior to graduation. This third internship is designed to refine, complement and supplement those skills the student has developed in his/her two prior internships. This clinical follows coursework which has emphasized skills on all client populations as well as specialized populations - clients with central nervous system problems, the geriatric population and/or the pediatric population.
This is a seminar course exploring the trends affecting the profession of physical therapy. The role of the professional team, legal and ethical issues and familiarization with test-taking strategies for licensure are also discussed.
