This course is a continuation of PHTH 7241 with more in depth study of functional neuroanatomy and neuropathology of specific diagnoses commonly encountered in physical therapy practice. This course is taught in conjunction with PHTH 7271 to study the full spectrum of patient management. These selected neuropathologies and injuries are studied with special emphasis placed on clinical signs and symptoms, medical diagnosis, radiological examination, medical and pharmacological management and prognosis. Case studies are utilized to assist students’ integration of functional neuroanatomy, etiology, epidemiology, and medical evaluation and assessment with clinical presentation.
