The course will introduce the student to the physical therapy management of patients who have cumulative trauma/stress injuries, especially related to occupational injuries with emphasis on ergonomics, Workman’s Compensation rules/regulations, and psychophysiological responses to stress. In addition, further specific musculoskeletal topics will be covered including hand examination and rehabilitation with fabrication of thermoplastic splints, temporomandibular joint dysfunction and women’s health. The principles of community work and learning (service learning) will be introduced in preparation for the implementation of this component of the DPT curriculum in the following spring semester.
