BSC 7001 - Foundations of Clinical Orthopaedics

Hours: 3
This is an online course discussing the foundations of orthopaedics and manipulative therapy. The history and development of orthopaedics and specifically manual therapy are explored. Arthrology and biomechanics are discussed, with special attention to tissue biomechanics and arthrokinematics. Emphasis is placed on spinal anatomy and movement. The University’s philosophy of examination, treatment, and pain management is introduced, but attention is also given to other diagnostic classification systems. Classifications and indications for manipulation are reviewed. The course provides an introduction to the evidence-informed clinical practice paradigm teaching the student to combine various sources of knowledge in the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of orthopaedic dysfunctions. Analysis, synthesis, and evaluation will be demonstrated through a final portfolio of evidence-based research and a student’s critique of the current literature and design of a hypothetical study.
