This subject is an advanced study of the structure and function of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system in the body in healthy subjects. Students will demonstrate advanced knowledge of anatomy including the ability to identify exposed anatomical structures and their important relations, and of the relationship between structure and function. The syllabus will enhance their ability to apply knowledge of normal structure and function to the practice of physiotherapy. As part of this process students will explore selected mechanisms of injury and disease, the resulting pathokinesiology, and the anatomical rationale for clinical tests used in differential diagnosis.
• Provide sound knowledge of the anatomy of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system
• Promote advanced understanding of the relationship between structure and function of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system of healthy subjects
• Develop the ability to analyse mechanisms underlying selected musculoskeletal conditions resulting from injury or disease processes in the body
• Provide advanced understanding of the anatomy/applied anatomy basis for clinical tests of musculoskeletal structures.
