Syllabus

This unit provides an advanced study of the functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system in relation to movement, exercise and musculoskeletal pathology. Case-based clinical situations of normal, disease or degeneration are presented to facilitate independent learning and to clarify and give real life reference to normal functioning. Lab work is based in the wet anatomy lab with extensive use of human cadaver specimens. Tutorials will provide an opportunity for students to develop observational and palpation skills in surface anatomy, movement analysis and assessment, as well as introduce skills in prescription of strength and range of motion exercises.

Combined teaching of undergraduate and graduate Advanced Functional Anatomy will take place in this unit.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify musculoskeletal structures of the human body including bones, joints, ligaments, special structures, and deep and superficial muscles (Origin, Insertion, Nerve, Action);

2. Observe and palpate the major surface landmarks of musculoskeletal anatomy;

3. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate all actions of the spine and peripheral joints (movements available - AROM);

4. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate passive range of motion and resisted strength testing of the spine and peripheral joints;

5. Identify both the synergists and antagonists involved in coordinated functional activities of human movement;

6. Provide basic prescription of strength and range of motion exercises; and

7. Demonstrate the necessary skills for independent learning.
