This topic provides the theoretical basis and practical knowledge to enable students to design and apply advanced exercise prescription in people with neurological and musculoskeletal disorders for the promotion of return to work (occupational conditioning) or routine exercise (overall health promotion). This topic presents students an overview of common neuromusculoskeletal conditions and medical management of these conditions, allowing better incorporation of clinical exercise physiology practice in interdisciplinary primary and secondary health care scenarios. Using case study scenarios and practical classes, students will interpret case history data to design/apply individualised exercise interventions/functional assessments. Students will be provided with the physiological basis to a variety of approaches to exercise prescription, including resistance and functional exercise training, to manage neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. In addition the pathophysiological bases of different neuromusculoskeletal conditions will be explored to enable students to design safe and effective exercise interventions for people suffering from disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, dementia, traumatic brain injury, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and acute, sub-acute, and chronic specific and non-specific musculoskeletal pain/injuries/disabilities to promote activities of daily living, sport, return to work and prevention of injury.
