PT 151 - Therapeutic Exercise

Through integrated lab, lecture, and an integrated clinical experience, this course will instruct students on therapeutic exercise, including basic principles of exercise and basic assessment skills pertaining to joint and muscle function. Emphasis will be on the implementation and progression of exercise programs for correction of specific conditions, muscle weakness, and joint limitations as well as goniometric and manual muscle-testing assessment. The laboratory experience and integrated clinical experience will give students hands-on experience with the techniques being taught, (e.g., strengthening, range of motion, stretching, or conditioning exercises) as well as balance, coordination, posture, or training. Students will also have hands-on experience with measuring vital signs, pain, muscle strength, muscle length, and range of motion. They will have an opportunity to practice and master the skills necessary prior to a full-time clinical education experience. Semester Credit Hours 3.00 Semester Credit Hours.
