DPT 504 Kinesiology

2 credits
Kinesiology is the study of human movement. This course presents a first-level integration of the mechanical/anatomical/neurological bases of human movement. The subject matter is specifically developed for students in the health professions. An interdisciplinary approach is used, in which material from anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and neuroscience is integrated. Human movement is studied from the perspective of functional, kinematic, kinetic, and neurological descriptions of single-joint, complex-joint, and multi-joint motions. In this regard, topics of gait, posture, and balance receive a special focus. Students work in groups for some course content.
Prerequisite(s): PT major or permission of instructor. Corequisite(s): DPT 505.

DPT 709 Advanced Pediatric Seminar

2 credits
This course is one of the elective options for DPT students.  It is designed to expose students to the use of hippotherapy as a physical therapy tool to improve pediatric patient’s functional outcomes.  This discipline is supported by evidence-based research and is used in addition to the therapist’s clinical decision-making skills for the provision of high quality professional care.  Students are expected to gain theoretical and practical knowledge about all equipment related to the patient and the horse.  Student’s will acquire an appropriate knowledge base for complex diagnosis and conduct literature searches on the efficacy of hippotherapy.  They will evaluate the impact of the equine movement on the patient relative to the altered mobility and alignment of the patient.  As a professional course, it will strive to support the planning and execution of rigorous research projects to promote the development of an evidence base for the use of equine movement within the therapy plan of care.
