This subject introduces students to the assessment and management of musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory conditions commonly managed in an outpatient setting. Students learn to apply physiotherapy interventions that maximise function for people across the lifespan. Students take an inquiry-based approach to learning and critique research literature to take an evidence-based approach to physiotherapy management of these disorders. Functional rehabilitation is emphasised in musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory conditions using motor retraining and biofeedback as interventions. Manual therapy for spinal conditions is introduced. Paediatric neurology and rehabilitation are covered in this subject, including an introduction to normal development and developmental milestones.
