Physical therapists select interventions based on the complexity and severity of the clinical problems of their patients. The selection of interventions is based on examination findings, an evaluation, and a diagnosis that supports physical therapy intervention. This course will introduce the student to a set of advanced procedural interventions including but not limited to manual therapy techniques including mobilization and manipulation; prescription, application, and fabrication of devices and equipment used for assistive, adaptive, protective or supportive purposes; vestibular rehabilitation interventions (including canalith repositioning maneuvers, adaptation and habituation interventions); and treatment of muscle imbalance. This course will introduce these topics to the student and the ongoing development of student proficiency will continue to be assessed in future coursework.
