PTA 110 - Musculoskeletal Review (3)

Musculoskeletal Review will build upon previously learned knowledge of normal anatomy and normal physiology. This course was designed for the physical therapist assistant student to learn attachments, actions and innervations of selected muscles. Group activity utilizing anatomical models and palpation on classmates will be key components to learning in this course. Units of study are divided up according to joints/areas of the body, as follows: shoulder girdle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, foot, and pelvis. Muscular system, articular system, and skeletal system will be our main focus in this course.
