Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy : Evaluating Practice
This module is for students who have an interest in Musculoskeletal treatment and assessment, offering an opportunity for students to reflect, explore, share with each other, and enhance their knowledge and understanding of the clinical reasoning, theoretical and research literature that underpins the practice of musculoskeletal physiotherapy practice.
The module content will include: the principles and practice of examination of joint, nerve and muscle tissues will be explored in terms of information obtained from the tests and how this information is incorporated into the holistic management of people with musculoskeletal dysfunction. The principles and practice of the clinical reasoning needed to develop a treatment and management strategy from the findings of the subjective and physical examination will be explored. Practical handling skills will be incorporated to facilitate discussion of key concepts. Research and theoretical knowledge will be used, as appropriate, to further highlight assessment, treatment and management clinical decision making.
