COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is a 2-credit graduate course designed to critically examine current practices in therapeutic modalities with regard to the healing and rehabilitation processes. The course will take a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating scientific (research) and philosophical bases. The efficacy of traditional and non-traditional therapeutic modalities for use in clinical practice will be discussed. The course is intended to provide the student with the information necessary to perform prudent clinical applications of therapeutic modalities. COURSE OBJECTIVES: The overall purpose of this course will be to help students achieve an understanding of the evidence based medicine as it pertains to therapeutic modalities. Specific objectives are as follows: 1. To gain further understanding of the physical laws that govern therapeutic modalities. 2. To achieve better results from the numerous therapeutic methods designed to facilitate the healing and strengthening of collagenous tissue. 3. To review physiological and biomechanical effects, indications and contraindications, clinical use and proper techniques for the application of common therapeutic modalities employed in the healing and rehabilitation processes. 4. To better understand the biomechanical, neurophysiological and metabolic changes that occur during the use of therapeutic modalities. 5. To use critical thought and scientific evidence to make sound decisions regarding the application of therapeutic modalities. 6. To critically think about the application of therapeutic modalities and related principles across diverse populations.
