PTAT 1720 - Therapeutic Exercise


Credits: 4
Students explore the theory, principles, and implementation of therapeutic exercise pro­grams for a variety of patient populations. In addition, they apply specific strategies for stretching (sustained hold, contract/relax, strain/counterstrain), strengthening (isometrics, isotonics, open/closed chain, resistive exercises, weight training, aquatics), and balance and coordination activities. Students also examine theories of motor control and motor learning, and implement these theories into clinical practice. Lab activities will involve therapeutic exercise programs set up, joint mobilizations, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) techniques and implementation in the clinical setting.

Prerequisite: Completion of PTAT 2030 .
