Building on a foundation of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, this course will build on introductory exam and treatment courses and cover advanced examination and treatment of spine conditions and lower extremity disorders caused by gait deviations. For spinal disorders, students will focus on distinguishing between articular and musculotendinous causes of spinal pain and treating the conditions appropriately. For lower extremity disorders, students will focus on examination of foot and ankle biomechanics during standing and gait. Treatment with exercise and extrinsic support will be covered in both cases.
