ATRN 616 - Foundations of Therapeutic Intervention


This course explores the concepts of designing therapeutic interventions in conjunction with assessing the quality of motion and movement to determine limitations and restrictions. The course will focus on analysis of gait, posture, range of motion, muscle function, joint motion and proprioception, and workplace ergonomics. Interventions in this course will address physical dysfunctions that stem from inflammation, pain, and limited movement patterns and decreased muscular strength, power, endurance and proprioception.  This course will incorporate knowledge gained in pre-professional coursework in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology/biomechanics, nutrition, exercise physiology, resistance training, exercise testing and prescription. Application of concepts covered within this course are embedded in assessment courses and clinical integrative experiences.

Prerequisites & Notes
Enrolled in the MSAT Degree Program and prior coursework in human anatomy and physiology, kinesiology/biomechanics.
