In this subject, students will further develop the fundamental principles and practical skills for the physiotherapy management of musculoskeletal conditions (including sports injuries). Students will continue to apply a problem solving approach in the assessment and management of specific conditions that may affect the musculoskeletal system. Learning in this subject will focus initially on the upper limb and progress to the cervical spine and systemic inflammatory conditions. Students enrolling in this subject are expected to have a substantive level of background knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system, foundation levels of knowledge of musculoskeletal physiotherapy assessment and management, and a developing knowledge of biomechanics. Students enrolling in this subject will have successfully completed PHS313: Foundations of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Practice.
