Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
With this course we aim that the student has developed the skills to examine a neuromusculoskeletal patient, based on a logical and reasoned argument.
At the end of the course the student must be able to identify and execute selected techniques in manual therapy and exercise prescription, know their indications and contraindications, to integrate knowledge formulating an appropriate clinical reasoning within the Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Clinical reasoning must be grounded in appropriate theoretical-practical concepts when selecting examination and rehabilitation procedures.
Different methods of assessment and treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system will be addressed allowing the student to structure their own knowledge.
Syllabus:
1. Thermography
2. Electromyography
3. Musculoskeletal assessment
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The integration of concepts Thermography, Electromyography and Musculoskeletal Assessment allows a better integration of the physical therapist in the sports environment, enabling him to cope with increasingly demanding and complex issues, both clinically and professionally, making him increasingly autonomous from a technical and scientific standpoint.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Includes expository and / or discussion format classes with the presentation of case studies along with the practice specific techniques for evaluation and treatment in physiotherapy.
The evaluation will be continuous through the written and practical mini-tests.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The expository and / or discussion format classes with the presentation of case studies along with the practice specific techniques for evaluation and treatment in sports physiotherapy allows to provide the students with specific and essential to the physiotherapists in sports, contributing to their increased clinical and scientific autonomy.
