Course Aim
On completion of the course, the student should, in a scientific way, based on current laws and regulations as well as with an ethical viewpoint be able to:
 
  1. Carry out a basic physiotherapeutic examination.
  2. Describe physiotherapeutic methods to examine, assess, treat and document function and physical disabilities for individuals with disabilities of the upper and lower extremities.
  3. Describe and apply relevant evaluation instruments for individuals with disabilities of the upper and lower extremities.
  4. Describe basic measure theoretical concepts and validity for screening and diagnostics
  5. Describe the concept of scientific evidence and make a simple compilation of evidence
  6. Describe the functional anatomy of the body and biomechanics.

Contents
The physiotherapeutic process
  • Basic physiotherapeutic treatment
Physiotherapeutic examination including:
  • Medical history
  • Inspection
  • Joint mobility
  • Nerve mobility
  • Muscle function
  • Snalysis of pain
  • Clinical reasoning
Physiotherapeutic methods including examination with specific tests, palpation and neurological screening in order to develop a functional and medical diagnosis for individuals with disabilities of:

  • Shoulder
  • Elbow, wrist and hand
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Foot
From a physiotherapeutic knowledge perspective review:

  • Reliability and validity
  • Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value
  • Evidence
Functional anatomy and biomechanics in the field of medical science including:
  • The impact of joint configurations for the function of the joint
  • Joint stability
  • Hypo/hyper-mobility
  • Neuromuscular control
  • Neurodynamics
  • Biomechanics
  • Postural control
  • Walking function

Realization
In order to complete the course, the student should actively seek knowledge and solve problems using an inquiring and critically reflective approach. This means that the student should take responsibility by actively contributing to the achievement of course objectives through the planning of content and time. The contents of the course are treated through literature studies, group work, lectures, oral and written presentations and seminars. Course requirements are completed study assignments and compulsory attendance and an active participation in discussions at seminars.

Examination
Learning outcomes 1-2 are examined through an oral practical individual examination (test 4 and 5).
Learning outcomes 3-5 are examined through written reports and seminars (test 2).
Learning outcome 6 is examined through a written individual examination (test 3).
Criteria for a Pass grade and a Pass with credit are stated in the study guide.

Remarks
This is a first-cycle course. Study supervision is provided in the course room in Canvas.
A pass in this course is a prerequisite for Work Placement and the thesis.
