Credits: 3

This is course will include theories and applications of techniques concerning neuromechanical measurement techniques for musculoskeletal patients. The intent of this course is to provide students with an introduction to neuromechanical measurement concepts, techniques and equipment to collect objective quantifiable data for clinical or research purposes. This course is intended to provide future clinicians/ researchers with the necessary knowledge base to objectively evaluate neuromechanical function along with the underlying the theory, concepts and application. Lecture and laboratory concepts will be utilized to instruct students on the foundations of various measurement techniques. Emphasis will be placed on clinical and laboratory measures of functional movement assessment, postural control, muscle function, diagnostic imaging, somatosensory function, joint stability, and central nervous system function associated with clinical and research aspects of musculoskeletal patient management. At the completion of the course the student is expected to understand the theory and clinical/research application of various instrumentation associated with neuromechanical assessment.

Prereq: Admission into Graduate Certificate in Musculoskeletal Injury Management or by instructor permission.
