Therapeutic Modalities in Physical Therapy (PTA 110)

This course addresses the basic physical science, data collection, and principles of selected physical therapy interventions to facilitate healing and pain control. Presentation of a wide variety of clinical scenarios and pathologies facilitates the student's ability to use clinical judgement in selecting applying appropriate modalities. During student-to-student practice in the on-campus laboratory setting students use simulated patient scenarios to demonstrate competency attainment. This course is subject to a course fee.
