development in taping and wrapping techniques, first aid general medical examination and lower extremity assessment evaluations. Clinical: hours per week variable 4 credits, Fall SPRT 475: Lower Body Extremity Assessment This course addresses evaluation techniques and assessment of musculoskeletal injuries to the spine, trunk, abdomen, and lower extremities. The student must integrate knowledge of anatomical structures, physiology principles, and evaluative techniques to provide a basis for critical decision-making in an injury management environment. Decision-making will be based on recognition, evaluation, and immediate care of orthopedic injuries caused by physical activity or exercise. Lecture/Lab: 3 hours per week 3 credits, Fall SPRT 476: Therapeutic Modalities Basic physiological responses of the human body to the application of therapeutic heat, therapeutic cold, therapeutic electricity, iontophoresis, ultrasound and other basic therapeutic modalities used in sport medicine are examined. Lecture/Lab: 3 hours per week 3 credits, Fall SPRT 477: Clinical II in Athletic Training This course consists of hands-on clinical athletic training experiences under the supervision and guidance of a program-approved healthcare provider in a professional setting. The course meets throughout the semester for formal competency development. This course includes skill development in therapeutic interventions and musculoskeletal assessment and evaluation. The course also includes content for goniometric measurements and muscle function assessments such as manual muscle testing. Clinical: hours per week variable 4 credits, Spring SPRT 478: Upper Body Extremity Assessment This course addresses evaluation techniques and assessment of musculoskeletal injuries to the head, face, and upper extremities. The student must integrate knowledge of anatomical structures, physiological principles, and evaluative techniques to provide a basis for critical decision-making in an injury management environment. Decision-making will be based on recognition, evaluation, and immediate care of orthopedic injuries caused by physical activity or exercise. Lecture/Lab: 3 hours per week 3 credits, Spring SPRT 479: Therapeutic Rehabilitation A systematic approach to individual rehabilitative exercise program development as it relates to athletic injury recovery. Basic information of using the various forms of therapeutic exercises, techniques, indications and contraindications of exercise, and exercise progression as related to athletic injury, prevention, reconditioning and return to participation guidelines will be discussed. Lecture/Lab: 3 hours per week 3 credits, Spring SPRT 480: Advanced Health and Fitness Assessment and Instruction An in-depth analysis of exercise stress testing for cardiacs, symptomatics, and asymptomatics will also be presented. Traditional, as well as more recently developed stress-testing procedures will also be discussed. This class will provide structured experiences in the classroom, laboratory, and gymnasium to improve knowledge and understanding of graded exercise testing, exercise prescription, and physical activities as used in prevention and rehabilitative programs as outlined in the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Guidelines. Prerequisites: SPRT360/361, SPRT390/391 and SPRT400/401 required. Lecture: Three hours per week 3 credits, variable SPRT 490: Special Topics in Sport and Exercise Science This course provides the opportunity to present topics of interest that are not regularly offered in the curriculum.
