PT 508 Exercise Physiology

2 Credits

In this course, the physiological responses to exercise in both healthy and patient populations are discussed and analyzed. In addition, students learn to consider the features of various pathologies which are often encountered by physical therapists, as well as the related effects of patient conditions and disease on patient responses to exercise. Throughout the semester, selected topics of study emphasize clinical decision-making regarding possible adverse effects of therapeutic exercises, physiological responses to exercise in geriatric and pediatric populations, with and without specific disease considerations, and other specific diagnostic groups.
