Course Overview

This course will introduce the concepts of injury and departures from normal structure and function in the human body, as occurs in disease. The various pathological processes and their importance in the basis of human disease will be studied. A particular emphasis is placed on the degenerative conditions of the spine and major joints. Correlation with clinical presentation will also be made, with particular reference to the musculoskeletal system.

After taking this course you will be able to discuss  most common diseases —such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, DJD, arthritis —and the pathological processes behind them. Understanding illnesses which are prevalent in today’s society will become a great asset in managing clients with complex medical histories, or specific dysfunctions of the spine and joints.

Very good course! It gave me an understanding of musculoskeletal development and pathophysiology which I never acquired in my previous studies.

The overall value of this comprehensive study is excellent, although it was difficult. This course took a bit of time to complete, but I liked the self-paced aspect.
