This course was designed to teach the foundation of how common injuries occur that affect the musculoskeletal system. To interpret the inflammatory process and all of the stages associated with an injury. To distinguish the difference between a ligament and a tendon injury. To distinguish the difference in tissue healing vs. bone healing as it relates to the post-rehab client. Understand the base pain mechanisms an individual experiences with any soft tissue, bone, or orthopedic injury. Be able to interpret the evidence-based research behind common soft tissue injuries, including medical management, physical therapy, and rehabilitation involved. Be able to design and defend an exercise program that includes post-rehabilitation training principles designed for a client that is individualized and client-specific.

Finally, differentiate the difference between neuromuscular control and stabilization training as it applies to the post-rehabilitation client.
