Aim and overall content
The module aims to provide the student with a basic knowledge and understanding of the clinical assessment and treatment of muscle injuries, including knowledge on basic muscle physiology, anatomy, and biomechanics, clinical examination methods, rehabilitation, and outcomes. The module focuses on both acute and overuse muscle injuries in the upper and lower extremities. The student will be presented to the pathophysiology of muscle injuries, including considerations related to the diagnostic process, planning of the rehabilitation, progression and regression of exercises, and evaluation of outcomes.
Please note: this module is taught at Hvidovre Hospital in the Capital Region of Denmark, and not in Odense at SDU.
