Course Description This is the final course in the orthopedic series offering the student an integrated approach to the theoretical and practical basis of clinical practice for musculoskeletal conditions of the spine.  Critical thinking and problem solving is highlighted in anatmosphere of higher learning where cutting edge management of musculoskeletal spinal conditions is coordinated with contemporary research. The course is an evidence-based approach to the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and intervention of musculoskeletal spinal dysfunctions. The biomechanical model serves as a basis for synthesis of several evaluation and management models including but not limited to Australian, Treatment Based Classification, Osteopathic, Pathoanatomical and McKenzie System. Differential diagnosis and prognosis is interpreted in light of orthopedic manual physical spinal examination findings.  The relationship between examination findings, biopsychosocial nature of spine pain and intervention strategies is explored. The student continues to develop manual therapy skills integrated with patient education and therapeutic exercise.
