NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Physical Therapy 411 PHT 6820—Musculoskeletal II Students will acquire the skills needed to manage and prevent disorders of themusculoskeletal system. Students will address relevant practice patterns as they relate to the upper/lower quarter, diagnostic classifications, ICD-10 codes, examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and interventions. Case studies are utilized in conjunction with lecture to assist students in integrating the didactic knowledge into simulated and reallife scenarios. (3 credits) PHT 6820L—Musculoskeletal II Lab This course emphasizes the psychomotor and affective skills required when providing the musculoskeletal interventions and tests addressed in PHT 6820. Students will acquire the psychomotor skills needed to manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal systemby addressing relevant practice patterns as they relate to the upper/lower quarter, ICD-10 codes, examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and interventions related to these patterns. Corequisite: PHT 6820 (2 credits) PHT 6813—Gender-Specific Issues in Physical Therapy This course provides a review of diseases unique to the male and female body systems. Students will gain knowledge of gender-specific pathologic processes associated with selected diseases as well as disease-specific signs and symptoms. Common medical diagnostic and treatment approaches of gender-specific conditions are discussed, including both medical management and an introduction to physical therapy intervention. Changes to body systems during normal pregnancy will be discussed in addition to common pregnancyrelated musculoskeletal problems. Topics will include male and female incontinence, prostate disease, erectile dysfunction, pregnancy-related movement dysfunction, pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary and fecal incontinence, lymph edema management, premenstrual dysphoric syndrome, female athlete triad, postmenopausal considerations, and osteoporosis. Students will be exposed to entry-level physical therapy examination techniques and interventions used to manage gender-specific diseases, including recognition of key subjective or historical information that may warrant a pelvic floor examination or referral to another professional. Students will also learn effective approaches to the discussion of sensitive topics and will learn to perform culturally appropriate screening and management of patients who have genderspecific diseases. (2 credits) PHT 6821—Musculoskeletal III PHT 6821 (lecture) is an evidence-based approach to the management of musculoskeletal disorders of the spine. Students will acquire the requisite skills necessary to examine, manage, and prevent musculoskeletal impairments; functional limitations; and disabilities of the spine. The course will address lumbar, thoracic, costal, cervical, sacroiliac, pelvis, temporomandibular, and headache disorders. Students are prepared for entry-level patient/client management including the ability to perform an examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and the ability to select optimum interventions. Moreover, students will acquire the knowledge necessary to accurately disseminate information (verbal and written/ documented) related to the examination and management of spine disorders to patients and clients and across the broad range of health care disciplines. Case studies are utilized in conjunction with lecture and interactive teaching and learning to assist students in integrating the didactic knowledge into simulated and real life scenarios. (2 credits) PHT 6821L—Musculoskeletal III Lab PHT 6821L (lab) will emphasize the psychomotor and affective skills required when providing the associated musculoskeletal examination and interventions addressed in PHT 6821, Musculoskeletal III. Students are instructed and mentored in the selection and application of tests, measurements, and physical therapy interventions. Case studies are utilized in conjunction with interactive teaching and learning to assist students in integrating the techniques into simulated and real-life scenarios relevant to the musculoskeletal system. Corequisite: PHT 6821 (2 credits) PHT 6824—Clinical Practicum II This is a clinical education course utilizing a self-contained, collaborative, clinical education model where students are directly supervised in the clinic by academic faculty members. Students concurrently practice examination/evaluation and treatment skills learned in the curriculum in outpatient settings, including servicing underserved and/or underinsured adults. In partial fulfillment of this course, students will select and complete service-learning activities that have been preidentified by faculty members to supplement classroom and clinical education experiences. Service-learning experiences will provide students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge and clinical skills to benefit the local community with follow-up reflection on the impact of their service. (1 credit) PHT 6830—Neuromuscular I Neuromuscular Systems I addresses the examination and treatment of adults with neuromuscular disorders. Students apply knowledge fromNeuroanatomy and Neuroscience to the clinical management of patients with neurological conditions. Neuromuscular Systems I provides the foundational concepts and clinical reasoning for choosing tests and measures used during PT examination of the neurological patient, including sensory and motor tests; examination of motor function, motor learning, and coordination; cranial nerves; functional mobility; self-care and activities of daily living; community function; arousal, attention, and cognition; and balance, gait, and disease-specific tests. The foundational concepts for procedural interventions related to neurorehabilitation will
